The new no. 1 system on the updated ranking of the TOP500 list of the world's most powerful supercomputers, released June 22nd, is Fugaku, a machine built at the Riken Center for Computational Science in Kobe, Japan

"The system turned in a High Performance LINPACK (HPL) result of 415.5 petaflops (nearly half an exascale), outperforming Summit, the former no. 1 system housed at the U.S. Dept. of Energy's Oak Ridge National Lab, by a factor of 2.8x.

Fugaku, powered by Fujitsu's 48-core A64FX SoC, is the first ARM-based system to take the TOP500 top spot. The system, which has 158,976 nodes, blew through the exascale (a billion billion calculations per second) milestone in single precision calculations, often used in machine learning and AI applications..."
