A Shanghai-based company yesterday unveiled China's first self-developed chips used in computers and servers and in the process broke the dual monopoly held by US chip giants Intel and AMD.
Cooperating with industry partners Lenovo Group and other domestic personal computer vendors, Shanghai Zhaoxin Semiconductor Co plans to sell 1 million computers with the new chip by 2018, said Ye Jun, chairman and chief executive of the developer.
"We don't want to replace Intel and AMD immediately at the current stage. But it does make sense that we have another choice from a Chinese chip designer," Ye said during an interview at the company's booth at the China International Industry Fair yesterday.
The advantage of the self-developed chip is its high-level security, which will be used in government bureaus, state-owned firms and the military. Lenovo desktops featuring the chip are already used in some local government bureaus.
