"Cray has laid out its plans to develop supercomputers that will take the concept of heterogeneous computing to an entirely new level by integrating a range of processing technologies in a single platform. These 'adaptive supercomputing' systems will be able to solve scientific and engineering problems more quickly--and make programmers and end users more productive--by adapting processing to the requirements of each application.

"Over the next few years, Cray supercomputers will combine standard microprocessors (scalar processing), vector processing, multithreading and hardware accelerators in one high-performance computing (HPC) platform that uses the industry-standard Linux operating system. Powerful compilers and other software will automatically match an application to the processor blade that is best suited for it..."
