NEC Machine Again Leads Speed Ranks

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 14 — The twice-a-year ranking of the world's fastest
computers, to be announced Friday at a supercomputer industry conference in

The Linux-based supercomputer is the NetworkX/Quadrics machine at Lawrence

based on Intel microprocessors used in the personal computer world.
