IBM Announces "STRETCH" Supercomputer Plans

IBM sends out an upbeat release on supercomputers and its own STRETCH. "The $10-million-and-up class computers are the world's fastest and most powerful. They are similar to the STRETCH computer which IBM is now completing for the Atomic Energy Commission at Los Alamos, New Mexico. IBM will now contract with business firms and government agencies to build STRETCH type computers. They can complete 100 billion computations in a day. The new machines are seventy-five times faster than the large-scale IBM 704 computer" Serial Number 1 STRETCH is part of The Computer Museum History Center's permanent collection.

In 1960, the price of $13.5 million was set for the IBM 7030.
