Talk on Cray Computing
24 August, 2023 @ 20:00 - 22:00
Our fellow member Geoff Balls will talk on Cray Computing.
Who was Seymor Cray?
By 1960, at the age of 34, Seymour Cray had established his reputation for genius in designing high performance computers. He had completed the design of the Control Data 1604, the first computer to be fully transistorized and had begun the design of the first system that earned the title of supercomputer, the CDC 6600 which was also the first major system to employ three-dimensional packaging and an instruction set that was later to be referred to as RISC (Reduced Instruction Set Computer). Find out what he got up to before he sadly died after a car accident in 1996 on August 24th.
Visitors are welcome on any Thursday club night held at the VBS Community Stadium
