Cray Computers Files for Bankruptcy

     MANHATTAN (CN) – Supercomputer-maker Cray Research International has filed for bankruptcy, listing more than $500 million in debts. Market-watchers attributed its demise to declining government purchases and the increased computing power of linked, high-speed, cheap computers.
     A slew of affiliates also filed, including Silicon Graphics Computer Systems/SGI and Cray Financial Corp.
     The company’s Colorado Springs branch told The New York Times that it would lay off all that site’s 340 employees.
