According to a report by 36, the source revealed that Ali Pingtou is developing a dedicated SoC chip that will be used in the core component MOC card of the new generation Alibaba server to promote the upgrade of next-generation cloud computing technology. It is understood that the dedicated SoC chip can improve the network and storage performance of the server, and can better solve the performance loss problem of the cloud computing.
On July 25th, Alibaba's semiconductor company Pingtou Ge officially released the Xuan Tie 910 (XuanTie910), which said that the Xuan Tie 910 is currently the industry's most powerful RISC-V processor. The Black Iron 910 can be used to design and manufacture high-performance end-chips for 5G, artificial intelligence and autonomous driving.
In terms of performance, the Black Iron 910 supports 16 cores with a single core performance of 7.1 Coremark/MHz and a clock speed of 2.5GHz, which is 40% higher than the best RISC-V processor in the industry.
Pingtou Ge Semiconductor Co., Ltd. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ali Research, which was established last year by Ali, to build a chip strategy based on AliNPU smart chips and embedded chips.
