Fugaku is the world’s 1st fastest supercomputer to use ARM processors

Check out the first Japanese supercomputer to become the fastest in the world with ARM processors, the Fugaku. It is the first computer to reach the top of the ranking using the ARM processor architecture.

Twice a year the ranking of the 500 fastest supercomputers in the world is redone. It was recently announced that currently the fastest computer in the world is the Japanese Fugaku, a project developed in Kobe in partnership with Riken and Fujitsu. The system uses Fujitsu’s 48-core A64FX chip and marks history as the first ARM-based computer to top the list.

Fugaku achieved a result of 414.15 petaflops in the Top500 HPL (High Performance Linpack), a number 2.8 times higher than that obtained by IBM Summit, the closest competitor. The Japanese supercomputer took first place in other test rankings like the Graph 500, HPL-AI and HPCG. Until now, there was no supercomputer leading the four rankings at once.

Usually, the fastest supercomputers are between the North American and the Chinese systems. This is Japan’s first system to top the Top500 in nine years since Fugaku’s predecessor, the Riken K computer. Overall, there are 226 Chinese supercomputers on the list, 114 from the US, and 30 from Japan.

Check out the post made by Satoshi Matsuoka, director of Computer Science at the RIKEN Center, showing the Fugaku supercomputer:

The Japanese supercomputer will go into full operation in the next fiscal year. So far, the computer has only been used for the purpose of research related to COVID-19, for example, to help discover diagnoses, simulating the spread of the virus and the effectiveness of Japan’s new contact tracking app. if it is useful for many purposes yet and provides a great evolution for various technologies.
