RIKEN Supercomputer Is Number One in the World on the Demanding HPCG Benchmark Test
Alex Larzelere, Bob Sorensen, Earl Joseph, Steve Conway and Alex Norton
At SC17 in Denver, the Japanese RIKEN K computer emerged for the third straight time as the world's most powerful supercomputer based on the High Performance Conjugate Gradient (HPCG) benchmark list. Although China's Tianhe-2 supercomputer has been widely seen as number one in the world based on its LINPAC rating, the HPCG test that the K computer excelled on may be more representative of the range of real-world HPC problems encounter by users. Riken's K computer has been either number one or two since the HPCG list came out in 2014.
