Changing tack, Fujitsu chooses UK partner on supercomputers

Japan's K supercomputer

TOKYO -- Fujitsu has decided to team up with U.K. chip design company ARM Holdings to develop the successor to Japan's K supercomputer, signaling a departure from its emphasis on employing proprietary technologies.

The next-generation machine is being developed by Fujitsu and the government-backed Riken research institute, with the help of 130 billion yen ($1.24 billion) in government funding. Completion is scheduled for 2020.
