(Yicai Global) June 20 -- Shanghai Zhaoxin Semiconductor, China's leading core processor chip developer, yesterday released the country's first universal processors with dominant frequency of 3.0 gigahertz, further narrowing the performance gap with mainstream international products.
The system on a chip of Zhaoxin's new-generation processors consists of a central processing unit, a graphics processing unit, and a chipset and features high-performance and low-power consumption. Thus the processors are ideal for hardware platforms such as personal computers, Ultrabook, servers and embedded computing, the Shanghai Observer reported.
The KX-6000 processor targets the PC market, while the KH-30000 is for the server market, per the report.
The performance of the new-generation processors is 50 percent higher than the previous generation, with a threefold reduction in power consumption, said Luo Yong, the firm's deputy general manager, noting that the KX-6000 processor can better meet the demand of devices on mobile platforms and it performs as well as the Intel Core i5-7400.
The processors are available in bulk, and equipment with these two processors will be first used and promoted in key fields, including finance, energy and transport.
