Emeagwali took parallel computing to a level higher than that of a supercomputer, an achievement that inspired the reinvention of the supercomputer. In The New York Times (11/29/89), the president of the leading supercomputer manufacturer warned: "We can't find any real progress in harnessing the power of thousands of processors." A few weeks later, Emeagwali's discovery of the formula that allows parallel computers to perform their fastest computations started making the headlines. Emeagwali's formula enabled him to subdivide a computation-intensive scientific problem into smaller parts and re-distribute the parts to 65,536 processors. That discovery inspired the reinvention of vector supercomputers to parallel supercomputers.
