Definition Edit

A vector supercomputer

achieve[s] much greater speeds than traditional computers by employing processors that process data in an assembly-line fashion. In a vector processing machine, a number of instructions are in various stages of being processed at any given moment as they make their way through the machine's high-speed processing pipelines. Results emerge at the end of these pipelines just as completed automobiles emerge from automotive assembly lines.[1]
