Fugaku

The new supercomputer Fugaku, which is being developed jointly by RIKEN and Fujitsu Limited, has taken the top spot on the TOP500 list, a ranking of the world’s fastest supercomputers.

It also ranked first in the HPGC, a ranking of supercomputers on real-world applications, HPL-AI, which rates supercomputers on their performance on tasks typically used in artificial intelligence applications, and Graph 500, which ranks systems based on data-intensive loads. The award was announced on June 22 at ISC2020, an international high-performance computing conference.

The record achievement indicates the overall high performance of Fugaku and its significant contribution to make Society 5.0 a reality

Fujitsu Supercomputer PRIMEHPC FX700 and FX1000 series utilize the technology of supercomputer Fugaku jointly developed by RIKEN and Fujitsu and is globally available.

Ranking Details

Supercomputer Fugaku ranked No. 1 in the 55th TOP500 list of the world’s supercomputers with LINPACK performance of 415.53 PFLOPS (petaflops) and a computing efficiency ratio of 80.87%.

Fugaku also took first place in the international ranking HPCG (High Performance Conjugate Gradient) achieving the high score of 13,366.4 TFLOPS (teraflops), claiming 1st in the HPL-AI ranking with 1.421 EHFLOPS, while taking first place in Graph500 with 70,980 gigaTEPS.
