A JPL/Caltech project team leader conducts a 'Smoke Test'
A JPL/Caltech project team leader conducts a 'Smoke Test', monitoring the Mark III Hypercube supercomputer's functions as the size is ramped up. Each board comprises a node in the parallel-computing whole. The Mark III Hypercube integrated 128 nodes, each node having the power of 25 VAX minicomputers. The peak speed was 2 billion floating point operations per second. It was built with Motorola 68020 microprocessors and was a joint endeavor of Caltech and JPL.
