Huawei has announced the industry’s highest-performance Advanced RISC Machine (ARM)-based CPU. William Xu, Director of the Board and Chief Strategy Marketing Officer of Huawei, launched this new CPU named Kunpeng 920 in an event at Shenzen, China.
Kunpeng 920 is designed to boost the development of computing in big data, distributed storage, and ARM-native application scenarios. Huawei will join with industry players to advance the ARM industry and create an open, collaborative and win-win ecosystem, taking computing performance to new heights.
Kunpeng 920, the industry’s highest-performance ARM-based server CPU was independently designed by Huawei using the cutting-edge 7nm process. It delivers improved processing performance by optimizing branch prediction algorithms, increasing the number of OP units, and improving the memory subsystem architecture. The Kunpeng 920 CPU performs 25% higher than the industry benchmark and consumes 30% less power than industry counterparts. It integrates 64 cores at a frequency of 2.6 GHz. Kunpeng 920 provides 640 Gbps total bandwidth.
William Xu, Director of the Board and Chief Strategy Marketing Officer of Huawei said, “Huawei has continuously innovated in the computing domain in order to create customer value. Currently, the diversity of applications and data is driving heterogeneous computing requirements. Huawei has long partnered with Intel to make great achievements. Together we have contributed to the development of the ICT industry. Huawei and Intel will continue our long-term strategic partnerships and continue to innovate together.”
Huawei has also released its TaiShan series servers powered by Kunpeng 920. TaiShan will deliver 20% higher computing performance and much lower power consumption for enterprises.
“We will work with global partners to drive the development of the ARM ecosystem and expand the computing space, and embrace a diversified computing era. Huawei has invested patiently and intensively in computing innovation to continuously make breakthroughs. We will work with our customers and partners to build a fully connected, intelligent world,” Xu added.
