Post-K: The Next Generation Arm-based Japanese Flagship Supercomputer

  • Satoshi Matsuoka, Riken CCS

Post-K is the next generation Japanese flagship supercomputer, to be built around 2020, being jointly developed by Riken and Fujitsu. The processor is a many-core Arm v8 processor that Fujitsu developed on its own, facilitating 512-bit SVE (Scalable Vector Extension) instructions with support for both HPC and AI, ultra-fast on package memory, very low-power, and embedded high-performance Tofu network that will scale to 100,000 nodes. The projected performance of the processor for HPC workloads supersedes the high-end Xeons by several factors, as well as exhibiting GPU-like performance on AI workloads.
