IBM's first transistorized supercomputer.
It was the fastest computer in the world from 1961 until the first CDC 6600 became operational in 1964.
Discontinued family of mainframe computers manufactured by Control Data Corporation in the 1960s.
It consisted of the CDC 6200, CDC 6300, CDC 6400, CDC 6500, CDC 6600 and CDC 6700 computers, which were all extremely rapid and efficient for their time.
The CDC 7600 was the Seymour Cray-designed successor to the CDC 6600, extending Control Data's dominance of the supercomputer field into the 1970s.
Computer with a high level of performance as compared to a general-purpose computer.
The CDC 6600, designed by Seymour Cray, was finished in 1964 and marked the transition from germanium to silicon transistors.
Computer used primarily by large organizations for critical applications like bulk data processing for tasks such as censuses, industry and consumer statistics, enterprise resource planning, and large-scale transaction processing.
Since the late 1950s, mainframe designs have included subsidiary hardware (called channels or peripheral processors) which manage the I/O devices, leaving the CPU free to deal only with high-speed memory.
Mainframe and supercomputer firm.
In 1964, the resulting computer was released onto the market as the CDC 6600, out-performing everything on the market by roughly ten times.
Computer designed to simplify the individual instructions given to the computer to accomplish tasks.
The CDC 6600 designed by Seymour Cray in 1964 used a load/store architecture with only two addressing modes (register+register, and register+immediate constant) and 74 operation codes, with the basic clock cycle being 10 times faster than the memory access time.
Mathematics research school of New York University (NYU), and is among the most prestigious mathematics schools and mathematical sciences research centers in the world.
The Institute was in the forefront of advanced hardware use, with an early IBM 7094 and the fourth produced CDC 6600.
American electrical engineer and supercomputer architect who designed a series of computers that were the fastest in the world for decades, and founded Cray Research which built many of these machines.
So after some basic design work on the CDC 3000 series, he turned that over to others and went on to work on the CDC 6600.
High-performance input/output architecture that is implemented in various forms on a number of computer architectures, especially on mainframe computers.
The 1965 CDC 6600 supercomputer utilized 10 logically independent computers called peripheral processors (PPs) and 12 simple I/O channels for this role.
