Global supercomputer leader Cray Inc. today reported that it has begun shipping the Cray XT3(TM) supercomputer, an industry standard massively parallel processing (MPP) system that strongly advances the record-setting scalability and sustained application performance of the renowned Cray T3D(TM) and Cray T3E(TM) systems. U.S. list pricing for the Cray XT3 supercomputer begins at about $2 million.

The first shipment was to the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) National Nuclear Security Administration's (NNSA) Sandia National Laboratories (Sandia). The Sandia system was developed and delivered under contract for the Advanced Simulation & Computing (ASC) program. Other initial customers include the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center and the DOE's Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

Application An AMIRA research program has delivered to the minerals-processing industry $295 million in direct financial benefits over the last six years for an investment of about $10 million, an independent evaluation has found. The industry-sponsored AMIRA P266 project to improve gravity thickeners has the potential to deliver an additional $250 million in benefits.

Dr John Farrow, of the Parker Centre and CSIRO Minerals, and leader of the P266 research team, says the concerted research focus on the performance of gravity thickeners has illuminated their mysterious inner workings.

Dr Robert La Nauze, WMC Resources' General Manager, Technology, says company engineers, working with Dr Farrow's team, had used the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model developed by the team to improve flocculant dispersal in a thickener at its Mt Keith nickel operation in Western Australia.
