Earlier today, Huawei unveiled a new processor during a special event that took place in Shenzhen, China. According to its makers, the Kunpeng 920 "is designed to boost the development of computing in big data, distributed storage, and ARM-native application scenarios" and is also the most powerful Advanced RISC Machine (ARM)-based CPU to date.

The Huawei Kunpeng 920 processor comes with the introduction of the Chinese brand's TaiShan servers which use this chip and target the aforementioned enterprise applications. This new chip uses the 7 nm process and was exclusively designed by Huawei based on the ARMv8 architecture. Huawei revealed that the Kunpeng 920 scores over 930 points in the SPECint Benchmarks test — "25 percent higher than the industry benchmark" — while offering a 30 percent power efficiency increase over the industry's average.

The new processor features no less than 64 cores running at a frequency of 2.6 GHz, 8-channel DDR4, two 100 G RoCE ports, PCIe 4.0 and CCIX support, as well as a total bandwidth of 640 Gbps.

The Huawei TaiShan servers that are powered by the Kunpeng 920 processor come in three models: a storage-focused version, a high-density model, and one that was designed using a balanced approach. The pricing and release dates of these servers have not been announced yet, but these are definitely not products for home and small business users.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
