 Japan supercomputing is the fastest in the world, with peak performance nearly three times that of the United States


Nine years later, supercomputers from Japan came to the top again.

On June 22, German local time, the international supercomputing Conference (isc2020) held in Frankfurt was changed to online, and a new global high-performance computer t0p500 list was released as scheduled.

In fact, the above-mentioned four computers in China and the United States have occupied the top four positions for three consecutive times, and the order has not changed. As for the top of the list, since 2011, Japans Beijing supercomputer, this position has been alternating between Chinese and American computers.

Nine years later, Japans new supercomputer not only made waves on the list, but also its performance was quite refreshing.

Fuyue uses Fujitsu a64fx with 48 cores, which is the first champion supercomputing based on ARM architecture in history. Its peak speed is 4.155 billion floating-point calculations per second, 2.8 times that of the runner up peak.

It is worth integrating. If we consider that machine learning and artificial intelligence applications often use precision reduction, Fuyues peak computing speed can reach level E, that is, 10 billion floating-point calculations per second. E-class supercomputing is the next milestone in human pursuit.

Fuyue is currently deployed at the Japanese Institute of physical and Chemical Sciences Computing Science Center in Kobe. Fuyue is another name for Mount Fuji.

Hpc5 in Italy, Selene in the United States, Frontera in the United States, marconi-100 in Italy and pizdaint in Switzerland are the 6th to 10th places on the list. The Chinese mainland has the top 226 in terms of its 500 share. The United States ranked second with 114, while Japan ranked third with 30. Source: surging news editor: Wang Fengzhi_ NT2541
