Super computers are required for effective ocean simulation numerical experiments because of the time and space scales of the underlying physical processes. This report compares four such computers, the Texas Instruments Advanced Scientific Computer TIASC, the CRAY-1, the Cyber 203 and the Cyber 205 entirely on the basis of their suitability for numerical ocean modeling. Using this as the basis for comparison, it is found that the Cyber 205 is the highest rated machine.
