ABSTRACT
At one time, supercomputing, a term that was synonymous with the Cray-1, was considered to be the best deal in town. However, by the 1990s, manufacturers began to question the need to continue the development of high-speed computers, turning their attention instead to the potential for developing a "high-capacity and high-speed national research and education computer network."
