Interesting observation, Naperlou. The vector processor was definitely played down compared to the emphasis on optimizing the software to support multicore architectures. Nevertheless, the outcome is the same: Enabling heavy duty simulation duties, which greatly improves engineers' ability to do larger and more intense simulations on complex assemblies--all good for the development of more sophisticated products.

Simulation pushes the computational envelope

This is another good example of a software need pushing the hardware to new heights.  The inclusion of the vector processor is really interesting and is a throwback to the mainframe era.  In the 1980s, using ANSYS and other, similar codes, we purchased a vestor processing facility to attach to our IBM mainframes.  This was a great approach to speeding up engineering codes.  Many engineering codes are more amenable to speedup with a vector processor than a massively parallel machine.
