Abstract:   NEC unveils an overview of the next generation vector supercomputer, which is a successor system to SX-ACE, our latest vector supercomputer. SX-ACE has demonstrated the world’s highest peak performance paired with unmatched power-saving technologies for the HPCG benchmark that is aimed at a more comprehensive metric for ranking HPC systems than the conventional High Performance LINPACK. The upcoming vector supercomputer will inherit these features for the enhanced performance of scientific applications. NEC aims at launching this product with the focus on an outstanding sustained performance particularly for memory-intensive applications.  It embraces a high-capability core strategy, featuring both the world’s top-level single-core performance and the world’s largest memory bandwidth per processor/core with unparalleled price competitiveness and low power consumption.
