Cray T90

Cray T90 range The Cray-T90 was the last of the pure PVP single memory systems built by Cray Research. Around 20 of these systems were built from 1996 until 2000. The T90 reintroduced the idea of total immersion cooling last seen in the Cray-3 but retained the Model IOS used on the C90s. Under the […]
