    Hoff and Associates Will Offer Cray XD1 Supercomputers to Clients Engaged in Compute-Intensive Engineering High-Performance Systems Will Help Clients Accelerate Their Development Cycles and Improve Product Quality

    SEATTLE, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 10/04/2005 -- Global supercomputer leader Cray Inc. (NASDAQ: CRAY) today announced that engineering solutions consultancy Hoff and Associates will offer Cray XD1™ supercomputers to its computer-aided engineering (CAE) clients as part of the company's comprehensive solutions portfolio. The Cray XD1 architecture is designed to accelerate engineering and other high-performance computing (HPC) applications that require peak performance to quickly solve complex problems.

    "The Cray XD1 supercomputer's superior performance and scalability, and its cost effective processor packaging, make it an ideal addition to our engineering systems offerings," said Hoff and Associates President Curtis Hoff. "Our extensive experience in all aspects of CAE will enable us to custom-configure the system to fit our clients' specific requirements, speeding their product development cycles and enhancing design quality."

    "We are delighted to be working with respected advanced engineering solutions provider Hoff and Associates to bring the Cray XD1 system to the broader CAE community," said Himanshu Misra, CAE business manager at Cray. "Their in-depth knowledge of CAE applications, the underlying computational models, and the link between application performance and system design ensures that users will get the most from their CAE investment. The partnership between Cray and Hoff and Associates will provide CAE users with a powerful solution that delivers superior application performance, whether the application needs tens or hundreds of processors."

    About the Cray XD1 Supercomputer

    The Cray XD1 supercomputer combines direct-connect system architecture, HPC-optimized Linux, management and reconfigurable computing technologies to deliver industry-leading performance on real-world applications. Purpose-built for demanding HPC applications such as computational chemistry, environmental forecasting and CAE, the Cray XD1 system lets users simulate, analyze and solve complex problems more quickly and accurately. The x86-based Cray XD1 system supports a broad range of 32- and 64-bit HPC applications on AMD Opteron single- or dual-core processors. The system also provides application acceleration capabilities using field-programmable gate array (FPGA) technology directly connected to the Cray XD1 compute environment.
