Fujitsu PRIMEHPC technology could build exaflop Fugaku supercomputer in 2021. Japan’s new supercomputer Fugaku is set to begin operations around 2021 with the country aiming to regain the title of building the world’s fastest computer, replacing its current supercomputer K, government-backed research institute Riken. The Fugaku, a nickname for Mount Fuji, aims to be about 40 to 120 times faster than the K, the first supercomputer in the world to achieve a speed of over 10 quadrillion computations per second.
PRIMEHPC supports the same Tofu interconnect D as Fugaku for maximum scalability in large configurations, and ultra-dense implementation of up to 384 nodes per rack, FX1000 can efficiently build large systems that deliver theoretical computing performance in excess of 1.3 exaflops. This model uses a water-cooling system, aiming for high performance and reduced total energy consumption including in cooling.
The United States and China have both revealed plans to release supercomputers with equal computing ability to the Fugaku in 2020 or 2021.
The Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory in Chicago expects to deliver the exaflop Aurora supercomputer by 2021.
Fujitsu announced that it will begin global sales of the PRIMEHPC FX1000 and PRIMEHPC FX700 models from the “Fujitsu Supercomputer PRIMEHPC” series, which utilize the technology of supercomputer Fugaku jointly developed by RIKEN and Fujitsu. Shipment is scheduled for March 2020.
