CDC 6600 (serial number 1), Control Data Corp., 1964

Memory: 64K+2M (60-bit) Core

Speed: 10 MFLOPS

Cost: $10,000,000

 

“When introduced in 1964, the CDC 6600 was the fastest computer in the world. Designed by Seymour Cray, it executed about 3 million instructions per second and remained the fastest machine for five years, until Cray produced his next supercomputer, the 7600. The elegant architecture of the 6600 included one 60-bit central processor with multiple functional units coupled to ten shared-logic 12-bit peripheral I/O processors. The machine was Freon cooled. Selling for $6 to $10 million each, Control Data Corporation (CDC) manufactured about 100 machines.”
