Tokyo, Sept 13, 2005 (JCN) - NEC (TSE: 6701; NASDAQ: NIPNY) announced the sale of the HPC Server SX-8i, a deskside vector operation supercomputer that achieves a processing power of 16GLOPS (billion floating point operations per second), on September 13. The space-saving server measures 45x70x70cm, and maintains complete compatibility with the SX Series supercomputers.

Equipped with the world's smallest single-chip vector processor, the same as the one used in the SX-8 machine, the SX-8i can mount up to 32GB DRAM and delivers a thruput of 64GB/sec between the processor and memory, ensuring highly efficient use for advanced scientific and computing applications. The SX-8i supports a built-in hard drive capacity of 146GB.

The deskside supercomputer supports SUPER-UX, the same operating system as the SX-8, and offers a compiler with an auto vectorization function and a lineup of various programming tools.

The new product sells for 12 million yen ($109,000) in a minimum configuration. Shipment is slated for February 2006. NEC is aiming to ship 300 systems over the next three years.
