Top 500 Supercomputers: The United States is once again at the forefront, ahead of Japan

After two years of Japanese domination, the supercomputer Fukuoku It has lost its primacy: He is no longer the most powerful man in the world. To get him out of the top spot on the standings Top 500 Updated every six months Border system, directly from Oak Ridge Laboratory (ORNL) It is located in Tennessee.

Frontier, equipped with AMD EPYC CPU and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) Cray EX operating system, He won the challenge by a significant margin, Touches a climax 1.102 Exoflap / V Linkmark on the benchmark When Fugaku was stopped less than halfway through, i.e. 442 petaflops.

In addition to power, Frontier has also brought home the primacy of performance: With a yield 52.23 gigaflops per watt Blow the title – this time Green500 list – To another Japanese supercomputer, the MN-3. Although currently in the testing phase, the U.S. Supercomputer will be used by the U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Department of Energy.

On other machines in the TOP 10 In Finland the EuroHPC (151.9 Pflop / s, with HPE Cray EX system), IBM Summit (148.8 Pflop / s with CPU and NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPU) and the smaller version of the Sierra Summit reached 94.6 Pflo. / S, we have already mentioned to you Our Super Computer Special.

China retains two places in the top ten Associate with its Sunway TaihuLight (NRCPC) from the National Research Center for Computer Engineering and Technology and Tianhe-2A at the National University of Defense Technology (NUDT) in China. According to some rumors, there are two exoscale systems in the country, the new Sunway Oceanlight and the Tianhe-3, however, it does not disclose the order of the sequence it carries on semiconductors.
