Described is the lCAP/3090 (for loosely coupled array of processors) parallel processing system. General parallel processing performance issues that determine the success of all multiple-instruction/multiple-data-stream parallel computing systems are examined in the context of large-scale scientific and engineering problems. Experiments with previous lCAP parallel pro-cessing systems that have made possible the present design of lCAP/3090 are also described.
