In addition to low-power devices that use mobile CPUs such as ARM, most high-performance CPUs are based on x86, such as notebooks, desktops, and servers. Huawei hopes that this situation can be changed in the next three years, and 90% of domestic software can run on its own Kunpeng CPU.
At the Guangdong Kunpeng Ecological Partner Conference held a few days ago, Qiu Lei, COO of Guangzhou “Kunpeng + Shengteng” Ecological Innovation Center, mentioned in an interview that up to now, Kunpeng has adapted more than 2,000 products and more than 2,000 solutions.
Qiu Lei also mentioned that Huawei hopes that 90% of its domestic software will run on Kunpeng in the next three years.
However, this goal still faces great challenges. At present, most of the software is developed for the x86 platform. Developer habits and software migration are both problems. For this reason, Huawei has also launched a series of tools for developers to make changes as little as possible. Help them migrate code in case of
Huawei launched its self-developed Kunpeng series processors in early 2019. Unlike Kirin processors for mobile phones and tablets, Kunpeng is mainly targeted at high-performance markets such as servers and desktops. It has up to 64 ARM cores, and its performance is at the industry’s leading level.
At the end of 2019, Huawei announced the launch of the Fertile Soil 2.0 plan. In the next 5 years, it will invest 1.5 billion US dollars to support developers in technological and commercial innovation based on Huawei products, platforms and APIs. 5 million developers will be developed within 5 years.
According to Huawei’s information, Huawei and industry partners have jointly established 15 Kunpeng Ecological Innovation Centers, and with more than 600 ISV partners, they have launched more than 1,500 Kunpeng technology-certified products and solutions, which are widely used in finance, government, and public utilities. , Operators, energy and other industries.
