Mathematica 9 is now available
Technology Guide--The Technology Inside Matters

gigaNumerics is the unique set of evolving Mathematica technologies that deliver high-speed numerical computations. Because of Mathematica's generality and accuracy checking, numerical calculations would normally have suffered speed penalties because a number of extra operations have to occur each time a calculation is executed.

In fact, Mathematica regularly outperforms specialist numerical systems. This is achieved by using the most modern algorithms--often developed by Wolfram Research--and an unique set of technologies, including automatic algorithm selection, precompilation, packed arrays, processor optimization, symbolic preprocessing, and vectorization. For even higher performance, gridMathematica delivers an optimized parallel Mathematica environment for modern supercomputers.
