Meanwhile, power efficiency is 30 percent better than industry counterparts.
A month after finding itself at the center of a global diplomatic and media storm, following the arrest of its CFO in Canada, the company has launched what it calls the industry's highest-performance ARM Ltd. chipset, Kunpeng 920.
Huawei today also released three models of the TaiShan series of Kunpeng 920-powered servers - one focused on storage, another on high density and a third focused on balancing both requirements, according to the company, touting advantages in many-core and performance per watt. "Kunpeng 920 provides much higher computing performance for data centres while slashing power consumption".
With the new server chipset, Huawei moves further towards becoming self-dependent for its chips and potentially reduces the impact of any trade disputes between China and the USA which has already seen both countries implement tariffs on each other's tech imports. "For example, in big data scenarios, the TaiShan servers are tuned for optimal many-core high concurrency and resource scheduling to deliver a 20 percent computing performance boost".
Across tests the company has conducted, it claims performance boosts in the realms of floating-point calculations, distributed storage, big data, and Arm-native applications.
The launch of the new chipset puts Huawei in direct competition with Advanced Micro Devices Inc and NVIDIA Corp.
Huawei is looking to continue to grow its technological empire through consumer electronics and cloud computing.
The current top cloud players are Amazon, Microsoft, IBM, Google and Alibaba, according to market insight firm Synergy Research. The company now aims to enhance growth of its revenues in cloud computing and enterprise services as it's equipment unit is under constant scrutiny in the West.
Huawei believes that an intelligent society with all things connected, sensing, and intelligent is underway, and this trend is picking up speeds. Huawei has invested patiently and intensively in computing innovation to continuously make breakthroughs.
William Xu, director, chief strategy marketing officer, chairman of the Investment Review Board of Huawei, speaks during an unveiling ceremony for a processor chip in Shenzhen, China, on January 7, 2019. The development and convergence of ARM-based applications on smart terminals are accelerating, along with cloud-device collaboration. In addition, new applications in cloud computing are driving data diversity. "We will keep using Intel CPU in areas where they perform better, and use ARM-based CPU in areas like cloud and servers where they are better", Xu told CNBC.
