“The Post-K machine is supposed to have 100 times more application performance than the K Supercomputer â€“ which would make it a 1,000 PFLOPS beast â€“ and is due to go live in 2020. The fastest known super in the world is China’s 125.4 PFLOPS Sunway TaihuLight machine, which would be crushed by the Postâ€‘K if it lives up to its performance hype.
It would also make the world’s fastest known computer an ARM-powered system; there are no other ARM-powered supercomputers.”
See Fujitsu picks 64-bit ARM for Japan’s monster 1,000-PFLOPS superWell, I suppose this vindicates my choice of ARM for computing here even with the ~20 billion scale factor…

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
