China is for real and I just hope people will not be migrating to China in my generation. This country is summonsing feat after feat. Whether this chip has any impact or not, it is amazing what this nation has become. Intel is a monster and it is not possible to compete against them. However, if China gets better, the govt will help them prosper. After all, it is a state capitalism. America be better wake up. China is real.

I guess if china could compete with biggies like Intel....this is in general good for the industry. I think there are not many companies into CPU designs...but low cost products from these chinese could bring down the prices of the CPU'S drastically.

Need to wring the Godson through the side-by-side CPU benchmarks, the same ones that AMD and Intel go through.

Silicon is but one leg of the tripod. The other two legs are Price, and Software. Expect the Chinese to be OK on price, but software is a tougher nut to crack. Hu does seem to be somewhat skirting WinTel, so there could be niche-room for this.

China has tried multiple times in the past decades to produce its own CPU, as well as operation system, but have never succeeded commercially. There was a national R&D center in the school I have graduated trying to develop a Windows like operation system, they spent more than 10 years and was the biggest line item of the annual department budget but produced absolute no product, more than 80% of the participating members have eventually migrated to the US. The government controlled R&D model simply does not work.

Pixies: Why do you think that model doesn't work?

I believe it's the evil side of human nature. Communism is fairly naive in realizing this compared with other western traditions/religions. china paid dearly for this ignorance in the past, there have to be some mechanism to filter out more evil/sinful ppl in your org. to make it healthy such as market economy etc. chinese govt. system use communism which could acts as a semi-religious group to promote human virtues. this system could achive some certain level of success ie. rockets, supercomputer etc. but this system can't achieve the highest level of human cooperation, so china lags in some key area even after many years of struggle like jet engine etc. about this cpu I bet it could achieve some level of success, hopefully some of its talents could find a way to form a real company to continue it like lenovo did. I did know another school (namely peking u.) involved in similar acts years ago and generated lots fanfare. in the end it's just wasting money I guess.

This putting together multiple core has become a fashionable feat these days. Do we really believe that creating a cpu with out of order instruction execution is all it takes to make it big? No, even though this is good as a research project it won't matter much commercially because of obvious reasons and intel is not in any danger from these efforts.
