$6 Million In Computers Donated by Intel

Six million dollars worth of computer equipment has begun arriving on campus, thanks to a grant from Intel Corp. that will make high-performance parallel computing available to a broad range of departments that have until now had scarce or no access.

The donation is part of Intel's Technology for Education 2000 program, a three-year, $85 million grant program, with gifts of up to $6.2 million to each of 12 universities.

With fast parallel computers at their disposal, campus scientists will conduct more simulations of real world events as an adjunct to theory and experiment.
