Innosilicon Announces Fenghua No. 1, first Chinese GPU
« on: November 18, 2021, 03:23:35 PM »
A chinese GPU maker has announced the Fenghua No. 1, its first GPU that supports OpenGL, Vulkan, Direct3D, OpenCL, PCIe 4.0, GDDR6X...  More details in this press release:

Recently, Xindong Technology has another good news. The high-performance graphics GPU chip "Fenghua No. 1" customized for China's 5G data center has been successfully tested and the world premiere is about to be released. Equipped with the world's top GDDR6X and chiplet technologies, "Fenghua No. 1" has achieved zero breakthroughs in domestic high-performance graphics GPUs in data centers, greatly improved the graphics rendering capabilities of domestic GPUs, and empowered new infrastructure. Application fields such as desktop, cloud games, cloud mobile phones, Xinchuang desktop, workstations, etc. will shine.

As an aircraft carrier platform for intelligent computing and graphics rendering, GPU-related industries have become a track of hundreds of billions of dollars. However, due to the difficult software and hardware technologies and application thresholds, this track has been monopolized by foreign giants for a long time, especially in the field of graphics cards in workstations and data centers. Domestic graphics GPUs have become "stuck necks" due to their backward performance. field. In recent years, this field has attracted much attention due to the high-profile entry of many start-up companies and the huge venture capital investment of billions. However, after the tumult, there is still no mass-produced product on the market that can be compared with international giants. No wonder there is a joke: "Domestic independent GPU, the valuation depends on PPT."

It is reported that "Fenghua No. 1" GPU is the industry's first rendering GPU that adopts the world's top GDDR6X high-bandwidth video memory technology and cutting-edge technologies such as Innolink chiplet. China's patented physical unclonable encryption PUF technology, PCIe 4.0, HDMI2.1, DP/ Self-developed advanced technologies such as eDP 1.4 have also gathered in one core. "Fenghua No. 1" is the first domestically compatible 4K high-definition desktop and high-performance server-grade GPU, supporting domestic Linux, Android, and Windows operating systems; supporting mainstream graphics frameworks such as OpenGL/OpenGLES/OpenCL/Vulkan/DX; supporting VR /AR/AI; Smoothly supports data center-level multi-user application scenarios such as multi-channel cloud games, cloud mobile phones, cloud office, and cloud desktops. The successful tape-out of "Fenghua No. 1" demonstrates the strong strength and low-key style of Inspur in the custom development of advanced technology IP and GPU.

It looks like that Innosilicon's new GPU is actually based on Imagination Technologies IMG B-Series GPU family

We have now launched the IMG B-Series GPU family, the latest generation of PowerVR (our 11th!) which has 70% higher compute density compared to existing desktop GPUs, and advanced multi-core features.

And I’m excited to say that we have five customers targeting the desktop, performance laptop and cloud spaces using the PowerVR GPU architecture.

One of them, Innosilicon, has announced their plans today alongside the B-Series launch. Innosilicon has integrated the newly launched IMG B-Series BXT multi-core GPU IP in PCI-E form-factor GPU SoCs for desktop and data centre applications.
