World fastest Japanese supercomputer, Fugaku​

A Japane supercomputer has become the world fastest computer with extroardinary capacity on biannual Top500 supercomputer speed ranking. It is called Fugaku which is now installed in RIKEN Center for Computational Science in Kobe, Japan. 

Fugaku can clock up to 415.53 petaflops which is 266.93 petaflops faster than IBM-develped Summit supercomputer which ranked the top last year in November. It also got the top scores on Graph 500, HPL-AI, and HPCG.

The computer also gained four supercomputing benchmarks, including processing speed, artificial intelligence (AI) applications and big data analytics, making it on the top-spot on Top500 list. 

This supercomputer, developed by Fujitsu and Riken over the past six years, aims to use in scientific research and the development of industrial and military technologies.

The Fugaku will be officially luanched in April 2021.
