In Japan, will create the most powerful supercomputer

According to reports from the Institute of Physical and Chemical Research RIKEN, one of the leading research institutions in Japan , scientists plan in 2020 to create a new supercomputer that can perform one quintillion (one million trillion) floating point operations per second.

The new supercomputer will be 30 times the power of the most powerful supercomputer at the moment, China’s Tianhe-2 system. Finance this development will be the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, reports

This development will be 100 times faster than previously created by RIKEN and Fujitsu supercomputer K computer, which in 2011 won first place in the ranking of performance. Therefore, experts RIKEN already have extensive experience in the creation and operation of high performance supercomputer systems.

Introduction to high-level systems exa can propel some areas of science and technology with a new level of quality, which are based on compute-intensive and processing large amounts of information.

These supercomputers will find their place in the areas of drug development, research in astrophysics, brain modeling and other areas that require very complex mathematical calculations.
