The Management Knowledge Company (CDC) 6600 performs as much as 3 million directions per second —3 times faster than that of its closest competitor, the IBM 7030 supercomputer. The 6600 retained the distinction of being the quickest computer on the earth till surpassed by its successor, the CDC 7600, in 1968. Part of the pace came from the computer´s design, which used 10 small computers, often known as peripheral processing units, to dump the workload from the central processor.
