"At typical frequency, the SPECint Benchmark of the Kunpeng 920 CPU scores over 930, which is 25% higher than the industry benchmark", the company said. The Kunpeng 920 aims to boost performance in terms of big data workloads, distributed storage, and floating-point calculations.

"Huawei believes that an intelligent society with all things connected, sensing, and intelligent is underway, and this trend is picking up speed", the company said.

Industry forecasts predict that aggregate data will expand 18-fold between 2018 and 2025, and artificial intelligence (AI) is driving a tenfold annual growth in computing power, Xu told media at Huawei headquarters. "Huawei and Intel will continue our long-term strategic partnerships and continue to innovate together".

"We hope to make our cloud service, together with our partners, one of the top five cloud services in the world", he added. Xu said that Huawei will continue its relationship with Intel but it chooses the best option for each use case.

Huawei Technologies Company has now finally revealed a new processor chip for the servers as the Chinese telecommunications gear giant has now pushed ahead with the expansion despite the closer scrutiny from the overseas. 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. Using the cutting-edge 7nm process, the CPU was independently designed by Huawei based on ARMv8 architecture license.

This " 5G Evolution " deception from AT&T is just another move in the battle for the consumer's attention. Right now, AT&T doesn't have any device on its roster that boasts actual 5G capabilities.


With the new server chipset, Huawei moves further towards becoming self-dependent for its chips and potentially reduces the impact of any trade disputes between China and the US which has already seen both countries implement tariffs on each other's tech imports. The ARM architecture is best suited for these scenarios with advantages in many-core and performance per watt.

On the hardware side, Huawei is a core member of Linaro and, on the software side, it's a member of the OpenStack Foundation and the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). With regard to applications, Huawei has joined the GCC.

In big data scenarios, the TaiShan servers are tuned for optimal many-core high concurrency and resource scheduling to deliver a 20 per cent increase to computing performance. (A) new era of diversified computing is unfolding. Though most programs can be compiled seamlessly without needing to change code, differences between architectures may result in reduced performance.
