Exascale Supercomputer Project launched
- New supercomputer with approximately 100 times the performance of the K computer
On April 1, 2014, RIKEN will embark on a new project to achieve exascale computing by 2020. The objective of the project is to create a successor machine to the K computer and to develop new applications that make maximum use of the new system’s performance. This is part of the Exascale Supercomputer Project planned by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. RIKEN’s Exascale Computing Project will be led by Yutaka Ishikawa of the RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science (AICS). The new supercomputer, when completed, will be installed within the premises of AICS in Kobe.
