(Update) Japan's "Fugaku" Remains Top in Supercomputer Rankings

   Tokyo, Nov. 17 (Jiji Press)--Riken said Tuesday that the "Fugaku" supercomputer, being developed jointly by the Japanese government-linked research institute and Fujitsu Ltd. <6702>, came top in four global ranking categories for the second consecutive term.
   The results were announced at the day's international online computational science conference. The supercomputer came first in the computation speed rankings for the first time in June.
   "Fugaku is already in use in the fight against the novel coronavirus," Satoshi Matsuoka, director at Riken's Center for Computational Science, told a news conference.
   The latest achievement by Fugaku is a "proof that it will play active roles in other fields," he added.
   Fugaku's performance rose to around 442 petaflops, or quadrillions of floating-point operations per second, from 416 petaflops recorded in the June rankings.
