The only Cray 2 to have 8 processors was Serial number 2101.
Considering that the Cray 2 serial number series began at 2000
(disgregarding the Q1 and Q2) this particular machine is the 101st. I
have a friend who I will ask about the particular architecture of this
machine as I am also interested.
Ill try to get back to you ASAP.
