World’s Fastest Supercomputer is Japan Fugaku at 415 Petaflops

The Fugaku supercomputer is the new fastest supercomputer and is almost 3 times faster than the Summit Supercomputer. Fugaku High Performance Linpack (HPL) was 415.5 petaflops.

Fugaku uses Fujitsu’s 48-core A64FX SoC. It is the first world fastest computer to use ARM processors. In single or further reduced precision, which are often used in machine learning and AI applications, Fugaku’s peak performance is over 1,000 petaflops (1 exaflops). The new system is installed at RIKEN Center for Computational Science (R-CCS) in Kobe, Japan.

It has 7.3 million cores and uses 28 megawatts of power.
