We report on an application code for the calculation of electronic properties of multicomponent ordered and disordered solids. This code was awarded of the 1990 Gordon Bell Prize for the price/performance ratio. We briefly describe the multiple scattering based algorithm (KKR-CPA) underlying the code and analyse the reasons why this theory is computationally expensive but can be coded to exploit either distributed or shared memory supercomputers. Experimental runs on Intel iPSC/860, CRAY-YMP and other machines are presented and their performances compared. Furthermore both relativistic and non-relativistic applications on alloy are presented together with a discussion of the interplay of disorder, relativity, and charge selfconsistency.
