Chinese chipmaker Zhaoxin has entered the APU industry with its first product. KX-6000G processorDeliver up to 1.5 TFLOPs of GPU power.
Chinese chipmaker Zhaoxin is gearing up for its decade-old NVIDIA KX-6000G CPU with a 1.5 TFLOP GT 630 integrated GPU.
To clarify things, Zhaoxin is a Chinese chipset maker that offers CPU and GPU IPs based on its own architectures. The manufacturer’s next-generation KX-6000 processor line will replace the KX-5000 and ZX-200 processors that have been on the market since 2017-2018. The latest chips include 4 cores, 8 threads, speeds up to 3.0GHz, DDR4 DRAM, PCIe 3.0 I/O and an internal 16nm architecture.
Last month, we talked about how the Zhaoxin KH-4000 series processors work It was able to deliver single-core performance close to AMD’s first-generation Ryzen processors based on the Zen architecture.. Compared to the KX series which mainly caters to the home consumer segment, the KH series caters mainly to the server sector and offers up to 16 cores and 16 threads. Although the architecture is not as modernized as the KX-6000G processors it is also based on the 16nm process node.
So, we go back to the Zhaoxin KX-6000G CPUs, which we can also call APUs because they use the Zhaoxin C1080 GPU made by Zhaoxin. Glenfly Arise-GT-10C0 Graphics Card It was launched in the Chinese domestic market a few days ago. Now, the same unique chip is integrated into Zhaoxin KX-6000G processors. The naming scheme and chip design are very similar to AMD’s Ryzen desktop APUs, which also use a discrete GPU architecture and are “G” connected.
According to Zhaoxin, the CPU has 8 cores and 16 threads, which is possible by combining two templates into a single package. The standard version of the KX-6000 processors only comes with a built-in C-960 GPU, which offers support for VGA, HDMI and DP at resolutions up to 4K. The new integrated GPU not only boosts performance but also offers better graphics capabilities.
For starters, in 3DMark 11, the Zhaoxin integrated GPU scores about 1,000 points, which is 3 times higher than the old GPU. It comes with an all-new graphics and image processing engine compatible with Galaxy Kirin KOS, Tongxin Software UOS, Windows and many traditional Chinese operating systems. The chip offers full compatibility with DirectX 11, Open GL 4.5 and OpenGL 1.2 APIs when creating a native 4K display. Despite being a big improvement over its predecessor, the integrated chip is still on par with the NVIDIA GT 630 graphics card in the 3DMark 11 (Performance) benchmark. (Vmodtech GT 630 Review Rating):
The Zhaoxin KX-6000G processor was tested in GLMark 2, where it scored 3116 points, and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 scored 10516 points in the same benchmark. For the CPU, the Zhaxoin chip registers over 15,000 MIPS in multi-threaded decompression, making it faster than the AMD Ryzen 3 1300X and closer to the Intel Core i5-7500. We used the following degrees TechSpot Review To create a comparison table:
However, Chinese GPU makers have been doing their best since 2016 to reach parity with AMD and NVIDIA GPUs. Recently, Jing Xiaoyi And this Inosilicone This fueled their plans to deliver GTX 1080 and Vega class performance in the coming years. Even Zhaoxin Runs on a range of x86 processors It can compete with the first generation AMD Ryzen processors Loongson is targeting Gen 3 performance by 2023 with its next processors.
