There was a change again in the world’s fastest supercomputer list. A computer developed in Japan this time took first place on the list.
The fastest supercomputer in the world: Fugaku
Supercomputers make the activities carried out in many fields from scientific researches to technological studies faster and easier. That’s why there is a fierce competition in supercomputers.
The Top500 list, which is published twice a year, lists the world’s fastest supercomputers and reveals competition in this area. In the new list published, there was a significant change in the summit.
A supercomputer named Fugaku was at the top of the list created as a result of the evaluations of experts from Germany and the USA. The studies for Fugaku, developed by the state-sponsored Riken Research Institute in Japan, took about 6 years. Developed for scientific researches and simulations, Fugaku is also used for analysis and simulations in anti-coronavirus studies.
This supercomputer, which can process more than 415 teraflops per second, enables faster execution of work with its data processing capacity. Fugaku is aimed to be fully operational by April 2021.
In the published TOP500 list, Fugaku was followed by other supercomputers developed in the USA and China. These computers made the top five on the list.
