Chinese language CPU Maker Debuts 32-Core Chiplet-Primarily based Processor

Constructing giant monolithic many-core CPUs is extraordinarily onerous even for famend chip designers. For Chinese language CPU builders, a lot of whom wouldn’t have entry to modern manufacturing nodes, the one approach to construct a processor with excessive core rely is to undertake a chiplet design. Because it seems, that is precisely what Chinese language CPU maker Loongson does with its 32-core 3D5000 processor, Sina reviews.  

Earlier this 12 months Loongson started to ship its 3C5000 processor that depends on 16 LA464 cores that includes the corporate’s LoongArch microarchitecture, as much as 64MB of cache, and 4 64-bit DDR4-3200 reminiscence interfaces with ECC help. The Loongson 3D5000 takes two 3C5000 CPUs and locations it on a single piece of substrate to construct a 32-core processor with eight reminiscence channels. The 32-core processor helps as much as 4-way simultaneous multiprocessor configurations and subsequently it’s potential to construct a server with as much as 128 cores.
