ARM based on the Japanese super computer now fastest in the world

A Japanese supercomputer has taken the top spot in the two-year-old Yo Top500 Super computer speed rating. FugakuA computer in Kobe co-developed by Riken and Fujitsu, makes use of Fujitsu’s 48-core A64FX system-on-chip. This is the first time a computer on the basis of ARM processors has topped the list.

Fugaku turned into a Top500 HPL result of 415.5 petaflops, 2.8 times as fast as IBM summit, the nearest competitor. Fugaku also get the top places in the second rank is that of the test computer on different workloads, including the graph 500, HPL-AI, and HPCG. No previous super computer ever led all four ranked in a bar.

While the fastest super computer rankings usually bounce between the American and the Chinese-made system, it is Japan’s first system to rank the first on the Top500 in the nine years after Fugaku’s predecessor, Riken’s K computer. Overall there are 226 Chinese super computers on the list of 114 from the United States and 30 from Japan. We based on the system contribute to the most overall performance with the 644 petaflops.

Fugaku is set to go into full operation next fiscal year. So far this has been used on an experimental basis to research COVID-19, including diagnosis, simulation, spread of SARS-CoV-2 virus, and the effectiveness of Japan’s new contact tracing app.
