Frontier Named No. 1 Supercomputer on TOP500 List and ‘First True Exascale Machine’

Hamburg — This morning, AMD’s long comeback from trampled HPC also-ran – a comeback that began in 2017 when company executives told skeptical press and industry analysts to expect price/performance chip superiority over Intel – reached a high point (not to say an end point) with the news that the U.S. Department of Energy’s Frontier […]

@HPCpodcast: Satoshi Matsuoka on the TOP500, Fugaku and Arm, Quantum and Winning Japan’s Purple Ribbon Medal of Honor

A leading figure in the HPC community, Prof. Satoshi Matsuoka, director of the RIKEN Center for Computational Science (R-CCS) and professor of computer science at Tokyo Institute of Technology, joined our @HPCpodcast for a far ranging discussion of supercomputing – past, present and future. At RIKEN, Matsuoka has overseen development of Fugaku, number 1 on the TOP500 list of the world’s most powerful supercomputers (the list will be updated next week during the ISC 2022 conference in Hamburg — as of now it’s not known if Fugaku will retain its position). Previously, Matsuoka was lead developer of another well-know supercomputer, TSUBAMI, the most powerful supercomputer in Japan at the time.
