Huawei launches ARM-based Kunpeng 920 chipset, takes on x86 server chips from Intel, AMD

There new chipset Kunpeng 920, is created to go into data centers and will power the company's TaiShan server, which was also launched on Monday.

"At the same time, the ARM industry is seeing a new development opportunity", he added. That is fueling competition for U.S. and European suppliers and frustration among governments that complain Beijing's industry plans violate its trade obligations.

Designed by Huawei and based on the ARMv8 architecture license, the Kunpeng 920 scores over 930 in the SPECint Benchmarks test- 25 percent higher than the industry average- while power usage is reduced by 30 percent against industry counterparts. The company said it is part of a planned product lineup to support "intelligent computing".

It's also not Huawei's first 7nm chipset.

Huawei is now embroiled in political controversy regarding the arrest of CFO Meng Wanzhou in Canada under accusations of "misleading multinational banks about Iran-linked transactions, putting the banks at risk of violating U.S. sanctions", according to our sister site ZDNet. The United States has continued to pile pressure on the company and accused Huawei of spying.

Huawei, slowly and gradually is making a move into the server industry.

Besides, Huawei also beat Apple for the second spot in global smartphones sales.

When Tasha K asked Carey if he ever told his mom about the abuse, he said he tried, but his way of telling her wasn't effective. For what it's worth, Joycelyn told TMZ a couple of times over the last two years that she is with Kelly of her own free will.

"In big data scenarios, the TaiShan servers are tuned for optimal many-core high concurrency and resource scheduling to deliver a 20 percent computing performance boost", the company said. The new chips would compete with the dominant x86 server architecture used by USA giants Intel Corp. and Advanced Micro Devices Inc.

Huawei's TaiShan server series debuted in conjunction with the Kunpeng 920, and is available in three variants.

Huawei's TaiShan series servers are built for big data, distributed storage, and ARM-native application scenarios.

Huawei has China's biggest corporate research and development budget at $13 billion in 2017.

Xu responded to a question about possible industry fragmentation by saying the outlook for the server market is "very bright". Xu tried to play down suggestions the Kunpeng 920 might compete directly with Intel, a major supplier to Huawei.

Xu said Huawei's "long-term strategic cooperation" with Intel would "definitely continue", focusing on X86 architecture for use in telecom networks, data centers and enterprise cloud.

Currently, 90% of computing systems are running on Intel processors and, with the end of Moore's Law in sight, the emergence of an Intel rival means the industry is "really going in the right direction", he said.
