Cray Computer

The Colorado Springs-based supercomputer company founded in 1989 by Seymour Cray after he left Cray Research. Cray developed the Cray-3, an incredibly fast gallium arsenide-based computer that ran at a 1 GHz clock rate. With the Cray-4 sitting in the wings, the company was unable to attract customers for the new products and closed its doors in 1995.
