PAX Computer and QCDPAX: History, Status, and Evaluation: A Reprint from “Scientific Information Bulletin”
David K. Kahaner (au)
Discusses aspects of a long-term parallel processing research project (PACS, PAX, and QCDPAX) begun in 1977 at Kyoto Univ. and Hitachi Corp.’s nuclear power div. The initial name, Processor Array for Continuum Simulation (PACS) was soon changed to Processor Array eXperiment (PAX). QCDPAX was the running computer current in 1990 when this article was written. Research was centered at the Inst. of Engineering Mechanics and Info. Sciences, Univ. of Tsukuba, Japan. The principal investigator was Prof. Tsutomu Hoshino. PAX is a two-dimensional array of processors that operate in MIMD form. QCDPAX has a fast floating point unit specially programmed for QCD calculations. Peak performance is 14 GFLOPS.
