Thoroughly revised and updated, this year's report contains invaluable information investigating the impact of supercomputing technology on data processing in the near term and its influence for the next five years.

The information and data in this report are critical in supplying: information on the size of each of the technical computing segments, what percentage of each is comprised of vector and parallel systems now, and what that percentage will be by 1995.

For each technical computing segments, the report gives dollar volumes, units shipped, user industries, applications, operating system requirements, vector shares of market and installations. Find out which computing segments and vectors show the greatest promise for growth and profitability.

The technical aspects influencing the development of supercomputing architectures and the features driving their user acceptance are analyzed. The report also provides immediate market opportunities by discussing types of applications that will benefit most from supercomputing technology.
