Huawei unveils the Kunpeng 920 - the most powerful ARM-based server CPU

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

Xu said that Huawei will continue its relationship with Intel but it chooses the best option for each use case.

Huawei believes that an intelligent society with all things connected, sensing, and intelligent is underway, and this trend is picking up speeds. Currently, the diversity of applications and data is driving heterogeneous computing requirements. Huawei has long partnered with Intel to make great achievements.

"We hope to make our cloud service, together with our partners, one of the top five cloud services in the world", he added.

Huawei's new ARM-based CPU is not a competitor to the US company's x86 CPUs and servers, but complementary, Mr. Xu added.

Huawei on Monday launched the Kunpeng 920, a faster ARM-based server CPU, bringing global computing power to the next level.

The Kunpeng 920 is designed for server workloads and uses a custom-designed ARMv8-based core. By optimizing branch prediction algorithms, increasing the number of OP units, and improving the memory subsystem architecture, the next generation chip can significantly improve processor performance.

Manny Pacquiao attends Clippers’ Filipino Heritage Night, meets Floyd Mayweather at courtside
It was about 5 years ago when an accidental meeting at a HEAT game led to Mayweather-Pacquiao finally happening. Pacquiao, meanwhile, has said he wants a rematch with Mayweather but Floyd has said he's retired.

According to a company statement, the Kunpeng 920 chipset is built using advanced 7-nanometer process and utilizes British tech firm, ARM Holdings' semiconductor architecture.

The TaiShan server offers a 3x improvement in running ARM-native applications in the cloud over non-ARM platforms, while the Kunpeng chipset is 30% more efficient than predecessors, it claims.

The new chip will be an improved one on the current segment's performance and power consumption specs. The SoC also supports eight DDR4 memory channels, PCI Express 4.0, and two 100G RoCE ports. PCIe Gen4 and CCIX interfaces are present as well allowing for up to 640 Gbps bandwidth. The chip will be beneficial for big data where the Kunpeng will power some big servers in the future. For example, in big data scenarios, the TaiShan servers are tuned for optimal many-core high concurrency and resource scheduling to deliver a 20% computing performance boost.

Huawei continuously promotes industry cooperation in terms of hardware, basic software, and applications.

Hawei wants to "foster an open, collaborative, and win-win ecosystem" and is collaborating with the likes of Ubuntu, SUSE, Linaro, and other organizations.

The company will continue to develop the ARM ecosystem, which it finds to have an advantage in terms of performance and power consumption; as it continues with its endeavors in the chipmaking industry. But it is searching for new avenues of growth such as consumer electronics and cloud computing.
