Supersystems are general purpose computers achieving throughputs in excess of 1 billion instructions per second (BIPS). As such, supersystems present formidable design challenges in the areas of technology and architecture. This paper examines three of the classical design options: high-speed monoprocessors, array processors, and distributed processors. The latter approach appears most desirable for supersystems, but will require improved interconnection networks.
