Riken should hit the first spot of TOP500 without using any accelerator (such as GPU).
Laurent, I did your latest PM re. SVE a couple weeks ago - I'm not ignoring you, just my Mersenne-related time has been full-up busy selfishly upping my own personal GIMPS throughput via different TFLOP-chip means. :)

For the folks around here, though, SVE-enhanced Mlucas will be more interesting in the context of the ARM-based CPUs Apple is moving to, which one hopes will be not only high-performing relative to (say) Raspberry-Pi/Odroid but also support 256-bit-wide vector arithmetic.
