Three models each offer a focus on storage, high density or a balance of both, tuned for optimal many-core high concurrency and resource scheduling to deliver a 20 percent computing performance boost. Huawei has pushed its own chips extensively in smartphones and servers and hopes the latest addition to its portfolio will eventually make it one of the top cloud players on the planet.

Momentum around ARM's breakout into mainstream computing continued today as Huawei unveiled what the Chinese tech giant touted is the industry's highest performing ARM-based CPU, targeting big data, distributed storage and ARM-native application scenarios.

Huawei revealed that the Kunpeng 920 scores over 930 points in the SPECint Benchmarks test - "25 percent higher than the industry benchmark" - while offering a 30 percent power efficiency increase over the industry's average. The new chip comes under Kunpeng 920 moniker and is designed by Huawei's HiSilicon.

"Based on the TaiShan servers, Huawei Cloud also provides elastic cloud services, bare metal services, and cloud phone services".

He said the new 64-core chip and the new ARM-based TaiShan server were responding to the rapid proliferation of data and devices and the need for specific objective chips and servers.

The Kunpeng 920 joins the Huawei's Kirin chips for smartphones and its line-up of Ascend processors for industrial AI in Huawei's chip portfolio. In such a context, ARM systems stand out with unique advantages in performance and power consumption...

William Xu, Huawei board director and Chief Strategy Marketing Officer.

Huawei is looking to continue to grow its technological empire through consumer electronics and cloud computing.

"Huawei has invested patiently and intensively in computing innovation to continuously make breakthroughs", Chief Strategy Marketing Officer William Xu said in the statement. We believe that, with the advent of intelligent society, the computing market will see continuous growth in the future. Currently, the diversity of applications and data is driving heterogeneous computing requirements.

"We will work with global partners to drive the development of the ARM ecosystem and expand the computing space and embrace a diversified computing era". Xu said that the company, despite the recent move, will continue its long-term strategic partnership with Intel and is not a competitor to the US company's x86 CPUs and servers, but just a complementary. "We will keep using Intel CPU in areas where they perform better, and use ARM-based CPU in areas like cloud and servers where they are better", Xu told CNBC.
