At the moment at CES 2019, Chinese language tech large Huawei introduced its new Kunpeng 920 ARM-based CPU designed to spice up the event of computing in massive information, distributed storage and ARM-native software eventualities.
The Kunpeng 920 is the highest-performance ARM-based server CPU constructed utilizing a 7nm course of. The CPU was independently designed by Huawei based mostly on the ARMv8 structure and the chip considerably improves processor efficiency by optimising department prediction algorithms which will increase the variety of OP items and improves the reminiscence subsystem structure.
At typical frequency, the Kunpeng 920 CPU scores over 930 in SPECint Benchmarks check and is 25 per cent larger than the trade benchmark. Energy effectivity has additionally been improved by 30 per cent and Huawei’s new server CPU offers larger computing efficiency for information centres whereas lowering energy consumption.
The Kunpeng 920 integrates 64 cores at a frequency of two.6 GHz and offers 640 Gbps of complete bandwidth.
Along with the announcement of the Kunpeng 920, Huawei additionally launched three new fashions of its TaiShan sequence servers powered by the brand new CPU.
The primary mannequin focuses on storage whereas one other goals for prime density and a 3rd focusses on balancing each.
Huawei’s TaiShan servers are constructed for large information, distributed storage and ARM-native software eventualities.
In massive information eventualities, the TaiShan servers are tuned for optimum many-core excessive concurrency and useful resource scheduling to ship a 20 per cent improve to computing efficiency.
Director of the Board and Chief Technique Advertising Officer at Huawei, William Xu defined how the corporate will proceed to collaborate with Intel after growing its personal server chips, saying:
“Huawei has lengthy partnered with Intel to make nice achievements. Collectively we have now contributed to the event of the ICT trade. Huawei and Intel will proceed our long-term strategic partnerships and proceed to innovate collectively. On the similar time, the ARM trade is seeing a brand new growth alternative. The Kunpeng 920 CPU and TaiShan servers newly launched by Huawei are primarily utilized in massive information, distributed storage, and ARM-native functions. We are going to work with world companions within the spirit of openness, collaboration, and shared success to drive the event of the ARM ecosystem and broaden the computing house, and embrace a diversified computing period.”
