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.
According to a sales representative, Phytium has provided thousands of CPUs to system builders that supply equipment for government institutions, telecommunication businesses, banks and public utilities in China, and its latest chip is expected to be used in high-throughput and high-performance servers.
Charles Zhang from Phytium previewed the chip at last year’s Hot Chips.
