Fujitsu to use ARM for next supercomputer

[…] “The latest milestone in our HPC journey came this week at the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC) in Frankfurt. Fujitsu, a global leader in HPC, announced Japan’s next-generation flagship supercomputer at the RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science, will be powered by SoCs based on the ARMv8-A architecture. The “Post-K” supercomputer is the successor to the “K-supercomputer” which is currently ranked No. 5 in the Top 500 supercomputing rankings. Today, the K-computer today is used to solve critical compute problems in fields ranging from earthquake/tsunami research to drug discovery. The K-computer has taken complex problems like a human heart simulation that previously took 2 years and delivered results in 1 day. The Post-K computer is being developed to address similar challenges.” […]
