In 1976 the first product, the Cray-1, serial 1 was shipped to Los Alamos National Laboratory

In 1982 the Cray-XMP was introduced, the first multi vector processor supercomputer

In 1985 the Cray-2 was introduced, with 4.1 nsec clock cycle and up to 4 GBytes of main memory. 1, 4, and 8 processor versions were delivered.

In 1988 the Cray-YMP was introduced.

In 1991 the Cray C90 was introduced.

In 1991 the Cray YMP-EL, an entry-level Supercomputer system built in CMOS technology, was introduced.

In 1993 the Cray T3D was introduced, the first non-vector massively parallel system by Cray Research, built around the DEC Alpha chip.

In 1994 the Cray-J90 is introduced, an air-cooled machine.

In 1995 the Cray T3E was inotrduced.

In 1995 the Cray T90 was introduced, a liquid immersion cooled machine like the Cray-2.

In 1996 the company was acquired by Silicon Graphics.

In 1998 the Cray SV1 is introduced.

In 1999 the core of the former Cray Research was sold to Teradata, upon which the name of the company was changed to Cray, Inc.

In 2002 the Cray-X1 is introduced, formerly codenamed SV2.
