Supercomputer

Extremely fast data processing-oriented computer whose number crunching power is (presently) measured in hundreds of billions of floating point operations (gigaflops). Supercomputers rely on parallel-processing technology and can use only a few but very complex programs in modeling economy behavior, nuclear reactions, meteorological and neurological phenomenon, etc. First supercomputer (Cray-1) was made in 1976 by the US engineer Roger Cray (1925-1996).
