Intel, the world’s biggest chip maker, is struggling because it missed out on the chip market for mobile devices. Now mobile chips are coming for a market the chip maker has dominated for a long time: supercomputers, reports the Technology Review.

Bad news for Intel

In academia, industry and government, supercomputers are used for research in topics as varied as potential new drugs and nuclear weapons. Chips produced by Intel power more than 90% of the 500 most powerful of them and dominate the PC and server markets. In contrast, U.K.-based ARM, which has long prioritized energy efficiency, builds chips that power most smartphones and tablets.

This week, supercomputer maker Fujitsu said it will use ARM-based processors to build a successor to a Japanese supercomputer called Project K. It is building the machine for the Riken Advanced Institute for Computational Science, which will use the machine for climate, energy and biochemical research. The computer is slated to be installed and turned on by 2020.
