Phytium: China-based CPU maker looking to take on Intel in HPC market

Posted on Monday, August 29 2016 @ 13:17:50 CEST by

VR World offers an interesting read that presents a look at what's going on in China right now in terms of processor development. The site points out there's a wide variety in competing designs in China, and talks in-depth about the Pythium FT-2000, a 64-core ARM-based processor codenamed "Mars". The chip is made on a 28nm process, it's designed for the HPC market and the author writes that follow-ons to Mars are likely to replace Intel Xeon processors in the future near-exascale and exascale Tianhe supercomputers. You can read the full piece over here.
The initial FT2000/64 SKU is a big 640 mm2 die using a 3000-pin package (FC-BGA). The 2 GHz 64-core model has declared 120W TDP and typical power consumption (akin to AMD MCP) of around 100W. This figure is actually very good for a CPU that either matches or exceeds an 18-core Intel Broadwell E5v4 Xeon in both integer and FP performance, at slightly lower power usage despite the above stated two generation semiconductor process disparity.
