Huawei has unveiled a new ARM-based CPU called Kunpeng 920, designed to capitalize on the growing euphoria building around big data, artificial intelligence and edge-computing.
The CPU was independently designed by Huawei based on ARMv8 architecture license, with the team claiming it improves processor performance by optimizing branch prediction algorithms, increasing the number of OP units, and improving the memory subsystem architecture. Another bold claim is the CPU scores over 930 in the SPECint Benchmarks test, 25% higher than the industry benchmark.
"Huawei has continuously innovated in the computing domain in order to create customer value," said William Xu, Chief Strategy Marketing Officer of Huawei.
"We believe that, with the advent of the intelligent society, the computing market will see continuous growth in the future. 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."
