SA website disclosed that a large mobile phone chip company is going to move to risc-v camp, which is one of the top 5 mobile chip manufacturers in the world.
Moreover, this defection is not only because NVIDIA acquired arm. It was prepared more than a year ago. It is a long-term strategy, not a short-term response strategy.
As Sas disclosure is charged, Im not sure who the company they are talking about. However, the top 5 mobile chip companies are no more than apple, Qualcomm, Samsung, Huawei and MediaTek. Among them, Apple has just built its own arm chip, so we can exclude them first.
Qualcomm will not feel that the acquisition of arm is a threat. After all, it is also an American company, and the second one is excluded.
One of Samsung, Huawei and MediaTek may have defected to risc-v. however, MediaTeks mobile phone chips are more stable. It is not ruled out that other fields will try risc-v. however, on mobile phone chips, they should not rashly give up arm and can also be ruled out.
Of course, Huawei is the most likely one, but Huawei itself is also an important member of risc-v, and has always attached great importance to open source processors. From the news, they are not surprised.
No matter which company it is, after NVIDIA acquires arm, it may have to consider one more way. The prospect of arm is not good. Risc-v is obviously an opportunity. This kind of open-source CPU will not be controlled by any company in theory, just like Linux.
U.S. Secretary of state pompeio: Huaweis investment is a predatory action. according to the internal system of European dealers, apple is prepared to have at least five iphone12 models. In addition to mobile phones and computers, the industry also lacks Chinese chips: the rate of autonomy is less than 10%. Source: fast technology editor: Mao Xinsi_ NBJS11624
