A new computer system with an entirely new processor design is described and demonstrated on a very small trial lattice. The new computer simulates systems of differential equations of the order of 104 times faster than present day computers and we describe how the machine can be applied to lattice models in theoretical physics. A brief discussion is also given of the various mathematical approaches for studying a lattice model. We used the computer on the X - Y model. In an actual QCD program an improved computer of such a kind is designed to be 102 times faster than ordinary machines.
