a 464V core! Wow, that is high-powered! ;)
Sorry for adding another very scientific comment to the high-brow discourse here.
Interesting that it's MIPS-based.. It would be helpful to learn more about how they decided on the architecture and how they got where they are now.
It makes sense that if China is to make computers that its poorer consumers could afford then they need to avoid costly Western products.
This is happening with 'unconnected', standalone products in certain markets, but not yet fully with products that demand a connected ecosystem like CPUs.
But with device-independent technologies like Java there is less need for a standard architecture, and they can go it alone.
I wonder what their attitude is to IP, if their eventual new processor needs features that breach other's IP? Will they tough it out, or bend to international pressure to do the right thing, or will national pride force them to do a clean-room design that they can claim as their own?
Rick is there an email that I and Richard Chow can use to reach you? Richard is a high school student and wants to do a research paper on grid interconnect computers like Godson and merrygoround interconnect like IBM and Intel. Also do you know the email URL so that Richard can contact Weiw Hu?

For the fourth time this year China's central bank announced Sunday the biggest Chinese banks must hold greater cash reserves. China's financial leaders are struggling to keep inflation in check. A world addicted to cheap manufactured goods from China could possibly be in for a shock. Meanwhile, Donald Trump, pandering for a presidential bid, proposed a 25 percent tariff on Chinese imports that was roundly ridiculed by economists. I read this here:[url=http://personalmoneystore.com/moneyblog/2011/04/18/china-inflation-threatens-global-growth]China struggles to curb inflation that threatens global growth[/url]
I don't agree at all. In the case of China, they started their economic development late, compared with the US, Japan, Korea or Taiwan province. What China needs is time. It is just a matter of time before they catch with Intel, and Intel will be in some stiff competition when that happens. Once China's economy reaches fully developed status, we expect that it will an lead the world in at least some areas of technology.
As China's economy grows, its culture is also changing rapidly. You seem to be fixated in the past, but you need to be prepared for drastic changes in China. If the past 30 yrs of Chinese economic growth was impressive, the next 30 yrs will be even more so.
You would imagine that developing a CPU is time-consuming and capital intensive and no private company can do it. So the government has to do it. Clearly, for the Chinese, it is very important for them to stay closely behind Intel technologically.
It would be nice if each Chinese student can buy a laptop with a Chinese CPU inside rather than a Intel CPU. That will save them a lot of money.
Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
