The Parsytec GigaCluster Power Plus (GC/PP) uses PowerPC 601 CPU's at a clockspeed of $80\,$MHz. Each processor has a peak performance of $80\,$MFlops and a LINPACK 100x100 performance of $15\,$MFlops. The machine of the 2 has $64\,$MB memory per processing element (2 CPU's). The communication between processors has a peak performance of $20\,$MB/s, but the sustained performance is only $3.3\,$MB/s. The GC/PP runs under PARIX 1.3.1 and uses the Motorola Fortran compiler and 2's version of the MPI libraries.
