The Hitachi SR8000 is a high performance supercomputer manufactured by Hitachi Ltd. circa 2001. It is composed of 4 to 512 nodes, each containing multiple Hitachi RISC microprocessors.[1] Cooperative microprocessors are assigned to the same address space for synchronicity within each node.[2]

In 2002, Yasumasa Kanada calculated the decimal expansion of pi to 1.24 trillion digits using this model. [3]
