This Intel iPSC/860 (Intel Parallel Super Computer 860) is one of the systems donated by a Stanford University professor.

The Intel iPSC/860 is a parallel computer, using nodes using 40 MHz Intel 80860 CPU's in a hypercube configuration. My system contains 16 i860 node boards. The largest systems contain 128 CPU's.

The operating system that controls the nodes is called NX (node executive). There should have been an Intel 386-based workstation called the SRM (System Resource Manager) with this system, but that is sadly missing.
