NEC SX-Aurora TSUBASA architecture

The new NEC SX-Aurora TSUBASA architectures core is its strong Vector Engine processor. It is a 8 core processor with 6 banks of HBM2 high speed memory. The architecture has something unique : pipe lined vector units which can process a lot of values simultaneously, and it has the memory bandwidth to feed it. Each core operates as described in the below movie, executing 192 double-precision floating-point operations per cycle.
