Paradigm (parallel distributed global memory), a shared-memory multicomputer architecture that is being developed to show that one can build a large-scale machine using high-performance microprocessors, is discussed. The Paradigm architecture allows a parallel application program to execute any of its tasks on any processor in the machine, with all the tasks in a single address space. The focus is on novel design techniques that support scalability. The key performance issues are identified, and some results to date from this work and experience with the VMP architecture design on which it is based are summarized.<>
