In addition to CPU, domestic chips will break through again, and it is no longer necessary to look at the faces of AMD and NVIDIA

Recently, Moore Thread in Beijing released its own GPU. The industry was almost completely controlled by American companies AMD, NVIDIA and Intel, which together accounted for 99% of the GPU market. Now Chinese companies have also made breakthroughs in this industry, which is of great significance to China’s chip industry.

According to statistics, Intel has nearly 70% of the market share in the GPU market. It mainly uses its motherboard integrated GPU to occupy the market, benefiting from its advantage in the PC processor market. It relies on this strategy to occupy the dominant market share in the GPU market, but its GPU performance is weak, which can meet most of the daily use scenarios.
AMD and NVIDIA mainly supply independent graphics cards. With stronger GPU performance, NVIDIA is more powerful in terms of performance; At the same time, AMD is also integrating its GPU and CPU to launch APU. Now AMD’s APU is widely popular in the game console industry, so AMD has 16% market share in the GPU market, while NVIDIA has 15% market share.
NVIDIA has opened up a new field for GPU and extended it to the AI and server industries, especially in the AI field. NVIDIA’s powerful GPU has been widely recognized as the most popular chip in the AI industry. With the rise of AI technology, NVIDIA’s market value continues to soar. However, NVIDIA just missed the CPU link, so it had planned to acquire ARM, the king of the mobile processor market, but it was eventually discounted.

Intel, AMD and NVIDIA are all American enterprises. Although ARM is a British enterprise, there are many technologies in the hands of the United States. Therefore, ARM is also deeply influenced by the United States. Relying on these enterprises, the United States has a decisive influence in the CPU and GPU markets.
China has deeply felt the importance of information security in the past ten years, so it has been pushing domestic self-developed chips, and has made great progress in self-developed CPUs. The CPUs developed by Chinese chips include ARM, alpha, RISC-V and many other architectures, all of which have strong self-developed capabilities. Among them, the mobile phone processor technology developed by Huawei HiSilicon is at the world’s leading level, Huawei HiSilicon has also launched its own ARM architecture Kunpeng 920 in the server chip market.
With the increasing importance of GPU, GPU self-research has also been put on the agenda. After all, GPU plays a decisive role in emerging technology industries such as automatic driving and AI. The research and development of self-research GPU can enhance industrial safety and improve technology. Now Moore thread has developed domestic GPU to fill this gap.
It is reported that the GPU chip of Moore Thread is named “Sudi”, which adopts a completely self-developed core and is produced with a domestic chip process of 12nm. It can be said that it is completely independently controlled. The MTT S60 desktop graphics card launched by it has up to 2048 cores, while the MTT S2000 cloud graphics card launched for the cloud market has 4096 cores, and its performance is sufficient to benchmark the high-end graphics cards of AMD and NVIDIA.
At the press conference of Moore Thread, many domestic manufacturers, such as Inspur, Haier, Tsinghua Tongfang, Lenovo, Purple Light Computer, Tencent, etc., expressed their support and recognized that its GPU technology is basically equivalent to AMD and NVIDIA, which can meet their requirements for GPU performance.
The introduction of GPU by Moore thread is of great significance to the domestic chip industry. With the self-developed CPU, it can ensure the information security from the bottom of the chip, and also ensure the industrial security. It will help the autonomous and controllable development of emerging technologies such as autopilot and AI, and maintain the leading edge in the future technology field.
In recent years, domestic chips have made breakthroughs in many industries, filled too many gaps, and made up their own weaknesses step by step, providing strong support for the domestic technology industry to catch up with the global advanced technology.
