Fujitsu supercomputer “Fugaku” maintains its high spot globally within the HPCG and Graph500 rankings
Fugaku’s excellent efficiency outcomes had been revealed on November 14 at SC23, the Worldwide Convention on Excessive Efficiency Computing, Networking, Storage and Evaluation, held in Denver, Colorado, USA. This marks the eighth consecutive interval that Fugaku has been ranked first in each the HPCG and Graph500 BFS lists whereas additionally incomes fourth place within the TOP500 and third within the HPL-MxP rankings.
Developed in collaboration with RIKEN, the supercomputer was additionally supported by a group together with Kyushu College, Fixstars Company, and Nippon Telegraph and Phone Company, together with Fujitsu, to take first place within the Graph500 rankings. This collaboration obtained a rating of 138,867 Gbps with 152,064 Fugaku nodes, which represents an enchancment of 1,771 Gbps over the earlier process.
The supercomputer additionally achieved spectacular outcomes with a full capability of 158,976 nodes, unfold throughout 432 racks. Fugaku achieved a LINPACK rating of 442.01 petaflops on TOP500, a rating of 16.00 petaflops on HPCG, and posted a rating of two.004 exaflops on HPL-MxP.
Because it started beta use in April 2020 and started shared use only one yr later, in March 2021, Fugaku has been on the forefront of social implementation throughout numerous domains. Overlaying life sciences, catastrophe prevention and mitigation, vitality, manufacturing, fundamental sciences, and socio-economic purposes, Fugaku has achieved tangible transformative transformations at varied ranges.
In October 2022, Fujitsu commercially launched a cloud-based HPC answer in Japan, Fujitsu Computing as a Service (CaaS). Geared towards a variety of industries, primarily manufacturing, the progressive service simplifies using edge computing assets based mostly on Fugaku and different high-performance computing applied sciences. These merchandise embody Fujitsu’s quantum-inspired Digital Annealer, a quick answer to combinatorial optimization issues, together with synthetic intelligence and a number of other software program applied sciences.
Fujitsu is harnessing the technological prowess of its CaaS platform transferring ahead. By collaborating with prospects, the corporate goals to speed up initiatives that leverage superior computing options to deal with urgent societal points. This strategy is designed to not solely deal with important gaps akin to employees shortages within the transportation and supply sectors but additionally to drive the creation of latest high-performance supplies.
