Mathematica Grid, quad G5
Wolfram Research today announced that supports the new G5 quad processors, which began arriving today. "Mathematica Personal Grid Edition eliminates the barriers to using parallelism as part of your daily workflow--with no administrative overhead and no contending for shared resources--and opens the door to new possibilities in high-performance computing." The software combines the computational capabilities of Mathematica with high-level parallel language extensions to create an optimal computing framework for quad-core machines, and Mathematica's high-level language, coupled with state-of-the-art numeric and symbolic solvers make it ideal for doing exploratory technical computing in a wide range of fields. Mathematica Personal Grid Edition requires Mac OS X 10.2 or higher, and is available for $4,000.
