Chiny prężą muskuły. Wypada to słabo na tle Zachodu

China is flexing its muscles. This compares poorly to the West

It seems that the Chinese efforts in the field of technological autonomy are bringing results. However, the West still has no reason to worry.

It is no secret that China has been trying to become independent from the West in terms of technology for a long time. This is crucial, especially in the case of government units and the military, because it increases information security. Thus, the Chinese are working on their own CPU, GPU and other systems.

Zhaoxin loses to processors from 2018

At the end of last year, the processor family was presented Zhaoxin KX-7000, which was created in pain. The series was originally scheduled to debut in 2019. The arrangements are interesting because they were created in cooperation with VIA Technologieswhich is one of three companies in the world that has a license for the x86 architecture.

In the results database Geekbench There is an entry regarding the top Chinese model. The flagship processor is equipped with 8 cores and 8 threads clocked at 3.2 – 3.7 GHz. The whole thing is complemented by 4 MB of L2 and 32 MB of L3 cache memory, as well as support for the DDR5 and DDR4 standards, which is a big change compared to the KX-6000.

When it comes to performance, the new Chinese flagship scored 823 points for single-threaded performance and 3,813 points for multi-threaded performance. So there it is x2.6 more efficiently than the previous generation. The situation is worse when compared to Western systems from AMD and Intel.

2018 processors such as AMD Ryzen 5 2500X and Intel Core i3-8300 offer significantly higher performance single-threaded (1103 and 1301 points respectively) and similar multi-threaded (3801/3825). It is worth noting, however, that both processors are 4-core and, in addition, they worked with free RAM.

In other words China is still years behindand their CPUs are not even close to the cheapest and weakest models from the current generations. However, what matters is something else – technological autonomy, which is a priority for the Middle Kingdom. The performance described today will be sufficient for state computers.
