July 02, 2020
At the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) it was announced that the Fugaku supercomputer was awarded the number one spot of the TOP500 list.
At the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) it was announced that the Fugaku supercomputer, a system jointly developed by RIKEN and Fujitsu Limited, and based on Arm technology, was awarded the number one spot of the TOP500 list.
The Fugaku supercomputer, which is located at the RIKEN Center for Computational Science, is the flagship system designed to support a number of applications that will address both social and scientific issues as Japan works to achieve “Society 5.0”.
Fugaku was also given top honors on the HPCG list, a ranking of benchmarks across real-world applications, and the HPL-AI, which rates performance on tasks used in artificial intelligence applications.
Arm’s Neoverse roadmap and portfolio aims to deliver the performance, efficiency, and scalability required to enable the next generation of HPC deployments. Arm has also made investments across the HPC software ecosystem, enabling seamless migration across instruction sets, cross-platform development, profiling, and debug.
Arm added additional porting capabilities to Arm Compiler for Linux and Arm Allinea Studio to help accelerate applications on current and future Arm CPUs, as more projects of this scale will be based on Arm, according to the company.
