Session Abstract

The post-K is the successor of the Japanese flagship supercomputer, K.
RIKEN and Fujitsu have developed a new Arm-SVE enabled processor,
called A64FX, for the Post-K system. The processor is designed for
energy-efficiency and sustained application performance. The system
will be installed in the next year. In this talk, the features and
some preliminary performance of the post-K system will be presented,
as well as the schedule of the project and supported software.
