Myricom, a pioneer in high performance computing that has shifted its focus to more mainstream networking applications in recent years, has named co-founder Nan Boden as its new president and CEO.

Myricom, a pioneer in high performance computing that has shifted its focus to more mainstream networking applications in recent years, has named co-founder Nan Boden as its new president and CEO.

Boden, who had been CFO, replaces Chuck Seitz, another of Myricom's founders. The Arcadia, Calif., company spun out of the California Institute of Technology in 1994 and sold its technoloy into clustered computer and supercomputer networks at universities and other such environments.

Don't Miss: The evolution of Ethernet

Boden will look to raise Myricom's profile as the company forges ahead with customized firmware for its high-speed Myri-10G Ethernet cards that are gaining ground at IPTV service provider networks, financial institutions and other customers beyond the HPC computing sites where Myricom made its early mark. The company boasts that it actually supports 20G on its cards, which each feature 2 ports.

We noted in an article late last year that Infiniband had rocketed up the list of Top 500 supercomputer implementations, with Myricom's Myrinet technology losing ground in this area as it refocuses on more mainstream markets.

Myricom competes vs. companies such as Intel and Broadcom.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
