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.

  1. Well, depends on how you look at it.

    “Last week, the administrators of the Folding@Home network reported that the network has passed the one exaFLOP mark, achieving peak performance of 1.5 exaFLOPs. That makes it more than seven times faster than the world’s fastest supercomputer, Summit, at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. To put it another way, that’s more raw compute power than the top 100 supercomputers in the world, combined.”,every%20second%20for%2031%2C688%2C765%2C000%20years.
