It's developing. A64FX is most assuredly not oriented toward integer or mobile. As with all technology, there are growing pains. ARM HPC will either survive, or it won't, but I can say there's a lot of enthusiasm around it in HPC circles right now.I don't know what you "I don't think you're intending to discuss this in good faith ". My point is, ARM is a new struggling technology. Its not at the forefront at the moment, at least for supercomputers. It may have a place, but its kind of out of sync with the supercomputer model Or desktop that needs a lot of "horsepower". Its an efficient integer cpu that works well in mobile type applications is what I see.
I expect that in the 06/2021 Top500 list, Fugaku, which is ARM, will be either #1 or #2. Will you still consider it "out of sync with the supercomputer model" should that occur?
