Inside the NWSC

A modern smartphone is far more powerful than NCAR’s first supercomputer, known as the Cray-1A, acquired in 1977. Each replacement machine has been many times more powerful than its predecessor. Computer technology usually doubles in power about every 18 months, a rate of growth known as Moore’s Law.
