Abstract:

The availability of vector processors capable of sustaining computing rates of 10 to the 8th power arithmetic results per second has raised the question of whether peripheral storage devices representing current technology can keep such processors supplied with data. By carefully examining the solution of a large banded linear system on these computers it is found that even under ideal conditions the processors will frequently be waiting for problem data.
