CAM-8 is a very fine-grained, parallel, uniform, scalable multiprocessor architecture, offering unprecedented performance in the fine-grained modeling of spatially-extended systems. It provides a general-purpose instrument for the systematic exploration of a new band of the computational spectrum. Using an amount and kind of technology comparable to that of a low-end workstation, this unit is about as good at large cellular automata calculations as any existing supercomputer. Larger units are currently being assembled and much larger ones will be available soon.
