Huawei works hard to build Kunpeng's rising ecology to create a new computing "base"
[ Electrical and Electrical
"At present, the basis of global computing is Intel's X86 architecture, and Huawei's computing 'base' based on Kunpeng and Shengteng chips can provide developers with a new choice," said Zhang Shunmao, senior vice president of Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. 8 He said in an interview with the media in Beijing.
Zhang Shunmao said that China ’s domestic CPU chips Feiteng and Godson have achieved collective breakthroughs, but the overall market share is less than 1%. That is to say, the computing base of digital China is the X86 architecture, and Huawei is based on “Pengpeng” and “Rising” Huawei Cloud provides new options for diverse computing.
Zhang Shunmao said that Huawei's computing strategy is based on Kunpeng and Shengteng as dual engines. Through hardware openness, software open source, and enabling partners, we will jointly explore the blue ocean of the trillion-scale computing industry.
In January 2019, Huawei released a general-purpose computing chip, Kunpeng 920, which can be used in servers and PCs. At the same time, Kunpeng 920 also integrates CPU, bridge chip, network and disk controller, which is the industry's leading integrated data center processor.
In August 2019, Huawei released the AI (artificial intelligence) chip "Rising 910". Huawei said that the training speed of the Shengteng 910 is 50% to 100% stronger than the strongest AI chip.
"In the future, the two wings of digital China and the digital world are computing and data storage. Without chips, there is no foundation. Huawei developed chips around these two wings." Zhang Shunmao said that after Huawei was included in the "physical list", how to solve the chip problem is more urgent .
After being monopolized by X86 for many years, computing also ushered in a historical opportunity of diversification. Both Amazon and Alibaba, which provide cloud services, are developing their own computing chips. Industry analyst Ma Jihua believes that the next generation of IT is a world where software and hardware are combined, and major companies are building their own underlying foundations.
"Xunpeng uses the ARM architecture, compatible with the global ARM instruction set and architecture, and compatible with the global ecology of ARM," said Zhang Shunmao. "We are embracing the world, walking with the world, and cannot close ourselves alone." (Finish)
