Well. There where vector coprocessor options for the large VAXen... I
think the VAX 6000 vector unit had 100 MFLOPs and you could put at least
two of them in a VAX 6000.

And don't forget: Cray is not the only vector super computer vendor. CDC
made the, how was it caled, STAR? ETA10 reimplemented this in liquid
nitrogen cooled CMOS. There are vector machines from NEC. Isn't the
Earth Simulator based on the NEC SX CPUs?
