Interview with the lead developers of the supercomputer Fugaku
We invited two key persons who led the development of Fugaku to discuss the history of supercomputers and the possibilities that await in the future.
What is Fugaku?
A system that excels in its all-around capabilities with up to 100 times greater application performance than that of the K computer
- Low power consumption, high computational performance, user convenience , and ability to produce ground-breaking results
- Power consumption of 30 to 40 MW (cf. K computer: 12.7 MW)
- Design also suited for AI applications such as deep learning
Developing the entire system from the processor to software by integrating cutting-edge technologies
- Processor compliant with Armv8.2-A SVE, the latest instruction set architecture for high-performance servers
World-leading performance using the newly developed A64FX processor
- Total number of nodes: 158,976 (432 racks)
- Peak performance (boost mode) : 537 PFLOPS (double precision)
FUJITSU Processor A64FX
The A64FX processor developed by Fujitsu becomes the heart of supercomputers that can perform quick simulations and analyze large data sets.
