Short Take: SGI adds more chips

SGI increased the number of processors that can fit into its Origin 2000 high-performance computers, which now can accommodate 256 of the company's 300-MHz MIPS processors. In addition, the company is working on doubling that count to 512, the company said. The computers are used for extremely computationally intense tasks such as modeling physics and designing aircraft at NASA.
