DescriptionFujitsu has provided supercomputers for forty years; most recently the K computer in 2011, winning 1st place twice in the TOP500, the Fujitsu-original PRIMEHPC FX10 in 2012 and the PRIMEHPC FX100 in 2015. Fujitsu also delivers x86 clusters for wide application areas and customer requirements.
RIKEN and Fujitsu are now developing the “post-K” supercomputer as Japan’s new national supercomputer project. The post-K inherits the K computer’s architecture and targets up to 100 times higher application performance, utilizing a Fujitsu CPU with the ARMv8-A and SVE ISA to widen application opportunities and contribute to the ARM ecosystem for HPC applications, as well as improve science and society. At SC17, Fujitsu will provide updates on post-K development.
