The Goodyear Massively Parallel Processor (MPP) was amassively parallel processing supercomputer built by Goodyear Aerospacefor the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. It was designed to deliver enormous computational power at lower cost than other existing supercomputer architectures, by using thousands of simple processing elements, rather than one or a few highly complex CPUs. Development of the MPP began circa 1979; it was delivered in May 1983, and was in general use from 1985 until 1991.

  • The Goodyear Massively Parallel Processor (MPP) was amassively parallel processing supercomputer built by Goodyear Aerospacefor the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. It was designed to deliver enormous computational power at lower cost than other existing supercomputer architectures, by using thousands of simple processing elements, rather than one or a few highly complex CPUs. Development of the MPP began circa 1979; it was delivered in May 1983, and was in general use from 1985 until 1991. It was based on Goodyear's earlier STARAN array processor, a 4x256 1-bit processing element (PE) computer. The MPP was a 128x128 2-dimensional array of 1-bit wide PEs. In actuality 132x128 PEs were configured with a 4x128 configuration added for fault tolerance to substitute for up to 4 rows (or columns) of processors in the presence of problems. The PEs operated in a single instruction, multiple data (SIMD) fashion—each PE performed the same operation simultaneously, on different data elements, under the control of a microprogrammed control unit. After the MPP was retired in 1991, it was donated to the Smithsonian Institution, and is now in the collection of the National Air and Space Museum's Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center. It was succeeded at Goddard by the MasPar MP-1 and Cray T3D massively parallel computers.

Il Goodyear MPP era basato sul precedente che era composto da 4x256 processing element (PE) ad 1-bit. L'MPP era invece costituito da una matrice di 128x128 array processor sempre da un bit.I vari processor element (PE) operavano in modalità Single instruction multiple data (SIMD) dove ogni processore effettuava le stesse operazioni simultaneamente su dati diversi sotto il controllo di un'unità di controllo. Nel 1991 l'MPP venne dismesso venendo donato allo Smithsonian Institution ed ora fa parte della collezione del National Air and Space Museum presso lo Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center.Presso il Goddard Space Flight Center venne rimpiazzato da un superminicomputer MP-1 e da un Cray T3D.
