Dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) is a type of random access semiconductor memory that stores each bit of data in a separate tiny capacitor within an integrated circuit.
In computing, massively parallel refers to the use of a large number of processors (or separate computers) to perform a set of coordinated computations in parallel (simultaneously).
The megabyte is a multiple of the unit byte for digital information.
In computer science, a microkernel (also known as μ-kernel) is the near-minimum amount of software that can provide the mechanisms needed to implement an operating system (OS).
A microprocessor is a computer processor that incorporates the functions of a central processing unit on a single integrated circuit (IC), or at most a few integrated circuits.
An operating system (OS) is system software that manages computer hardware and software resources and provides common services for computer programs.
The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) is a high performance computing and networking center founded in 1986.
The PowerBook (known as Macintosh PowerBook before 1997) is a family of Macintosh laptop computers designed, manufactured and sold by Apple Computer, Inc. from 1991 to 2006.
A supercomputer is a computer with a high level of performance compared to a general-purpose computer.
In geometry, a torus (plural tori) is a surface of revolution generated by revolving a circle in three-dimensional space about an axis coplanar with the circle.
UNICOS is the name of a range of Unix-like operating system variants developed by Cray for its supercomputers.
