Objectives and Approach

The objective of GENESIS was to develop a highly parallel architecture for very-high-performance numerical computing as the basis for a family of supercomputers meeting the following goals:

The goals of the definition phase were to define all aspects of GENESIS, and specifically to:

Progress and Results

The definition phase produced a number of reports and analyses, particularly at the architecture level. As a result, it was decided to continue the work under three different projects, running in parallel, representing different developmental approaches: PUMA (2701), GENESIS II (2702) and HSSC (2703).
