MONTARGIS, France-Hutchinson S.A. has upgraded its Convex scientific computer, bringing an order of magnitude improvement in nominal processing power.
The firm bought a C4620 from U.S. manufacturer Convex. In addition, Hutchinson acquired an eight-processor Exemplar SPP1200, also from Convex. The former is used for vector processing, the latter for scalar operations.
In 1991, the company bought a Convex C240.
