back to article Fujitsu's A64FX successor will be an Arm-based datacenter chip

Fujitsu's Arm-based A64FX processor may have driven the most powerful supercomputer in the world, but it looks like its successor will be a more general-purpose chip that will focus on energy efficiency. The Japanese IT giant built its own Arm processor for use in the Fugaku supercomputer, and commercialized it in the PRIMEHPC …

    Tofu-D .. 28 Gbps? That seems far too slow.

    If only there was an article about it somewhere here..

    It seems like someone got mugged in Monaco and have been waiting for this moment for all their life.

    To mock Monaco.

      No that's not it, perhaps it'll crash and burn after 3 or 4 months - see "Summer with Monika" (1953) from Ingmar Bergman.

      Monaka is a jam-filled wafer cake (IMO quite appropriate for a processor), while the interconnect is named after a soy-based quasi-cheese.

      Methinks someone was feeling peckish while drawing plans for this next supercomputer...

    Washing machine green detected well as contributing to "the realization of a carbon-neutral and sustainable society."

    So, this chip will release a surplus of energy back to the grid while running?

    Head hurts.

      will release a surplus of energy back to the grid while running?

      Many vendors are actually considering abuse of the grid to make profit - basically get large batteries and store energy off peak and then sell energy off batteries during peak and make money on the difference.

      That will potentially make it more expensive for people relying on off peak tariffs.

    I presume it’s better at arithmetic than Fujitsu Horizon (UK Post Office) software ??
