The Aizu supercomputer is a massively parallel system suited to the solution of virtual reality problems and the support of multimedia applications. It employs a highly parallel MIMD architecture using a conflict-free internetwork system. The scalable communication system consists of two networks: a pyramid network and a reconfigurable network using optical links. The Aizu Supercomputer has a cluster configuration and a shared memory. Each PE includes 113 SPECmark and one cluster is organized with 8 PEs. In the trial production, the supercomputer will include 1365 PEs with more than 100 GFlops at peak performance.
