Phytium from China Unveils 64-core ARM HPC Processor

pytium2This week at the Hot Chips conference, Phytium Technology from China unveiled a 64-core CPU and a related prototype computer server.

Phytium says the new FT-2000/64 CPU chip, with 64-bit arithmetic compatible with ARMv8 instructions, is able to perform 512 GFLOPS at base frequency of 2.0 GHz and on 100 watts of power dissipation.

While the architecture is licensed from ARM Holdings, a British company, Phytium has designed its own cores, known as FTC661s.
