The latest, 55th, edition of Top500 marks the first time an Arm-powered supercomputer is at the top of the list.
The world's new fastest supercomputer is named Fugaku, powered by Fujitsu’s 48-core A64FX SoC. It is installed at the RIKEN Center for Computational Science (R-CCS) in Kobe, Japan. It beat the previous performance champion, the US Department of Energy's Summit system -- which topped the Top500 list twice in a row -- by a factor of 2.8x, the non-profit Top500 organization announced on June 22, 2020.
Summit is now in second place.
Also new to the list are HPC5, a Dell system installed at a data center of the Italian energy firm Eni (in sixth place); Nvidia's Selene, the hardware company's own DGX SuperPOD cluster (in seventh place); and Marconi-100, an IBM cluster installed at the CINECA research center in Bologna, Italy (in ninth place).
Here are the details of the world’s 10 fastest supercomputers, according to the June 2020 Top500 list (full list here). All data courtesy of Top500.org:
