The chip god joins the camp supported by Chinese chips, and ARM and Intel may regret it

The chip god Jim keller recently joined a chip company that develops the RISC-V architecture, and stated that RISC-V will win and will compete with ARM and Intel in the future. This remark is undoubtedly a heavy blow to ARM and Intel. RISC-V, which is supported by Chinese chips, is undoubtedly a stimulant. Who is Jim Keller? Anyone who knows the chip industry will know this great god. The DEC alpha architecture he participated in the research and development of that year once crushed Intel in terms of performance; later he participated in the research and development of AMD's K7 architecture, which once promoted the revival of ARM; and later participated in the research and development of P.A.semi, After P.A.semi was acquired by Apple, A-series processors were developed, and A-series processors have always been the leader in the mobile processor market. Apple's processor research and development actually has the shadow of the DEC alpha in the past in terms of technology, because most of P.A.semi's technicians come from the DEC alpha processor research and development project. By 2020, Apple's M-series processors will be comparable to Intel's 11th generation in performance. i Core i7 processor, and abandoned Intel's processor, which is considered to be the revenge of DEC technicians. Since 2016, AMD has launched a new Zen architecture, which has reached the highest level of the X86 camp in terms of performance, and has beaten Intel in the desktop processor market, and Jim Keller is known as the father of the Zen architecture; 2018 In 2018, Intel recruited Jim Keller to its subsidiary and left in June 2020. Although Jim Keller did not make any outstanding achievements at Intel, Intel internal employees said that Jim Keller has straightened out the chip development process and improved efficiency. Since then The performance of the 12th-generation Core developed by Intel may have been greatly improved by him. It can be seen that Jim Keller always brings technological changes to a company and promotes the company's chip technology improvement. It can be said that he always brings changes to the chip industry by himself, so it is not surprising When he chose to join the RISC-V camp, the RISC-V camp was so excited. After the Chinese chip industry has vigorously promoted the development of the RISC-V architecture since 2019-since then, 12 of the 19 senior members of RISC-V are Chinese chip companies, and Chinese chip companies have lived up to their expectations. Successfully promoted RISC-V to gain a dominant position in the domestic IoT chip market. Among them, only 3 billion black iron chips developed by Ali Pingtou were shipped, and RISC-V executives said that in July this year, RISC-V architecture chips were released globally. The volume of goods has exceeded 10 billion, which shows the great support of Chinese chips. RISC-V is no longer a little brother now, it is at a critical node, although it has achieved a dominant position in the IoT chip market, the IoT chip market is still a small market, and the market size is not comparable to that of ARM's mobile chip market. The chip market is also inferior to the PC processor and server chip markets dominated by Intel. For this reason, the RISC-V camp is actively entering the mobile chip and PC processor market. The RISC-V architecture processor developed by Ali Pingtou has been successfully adapted to many operating systems such as Android and Linux. However, from the actual performance point of view, the performance of the RISC-V architecture still has a certain gap with ARM, especially the leader of the ARM camp. The huge shock brought by Apple's upgrade of the ARM architecture to close to Intel's X86 architecture has made the RISC-V camp deeply anxious. At this time, Jim Keller's joining the RISC-V camp is undoubtedly a huge support. With Jim Keller's experience and technology, the RISC-V architecture may be able to greatly improve performance. The founder of RISC-V said that the original intention of the RISC-V architecture is to develop stronger performance with backward technology, which means that it has huge potential. Jim keller may become the leader of the RISC-V architecture. Once it can reach high performance, it can invade the market where ARM and Intel are. It is worth noting that Intel has now begun to develop the RISC-V architecture. With the support of Intel and Jim Keller, perhaps the RISC-V supported by Chinese chips will be able to challenge ARM and Intel in the future. The Chinese chip industry with many patents is beneficial, it can speed up the ecological improvement of the RISC-V architecture, and Chinese chips can also get rid of the restrictions of ARM and Intel. After all, RISC-V is an open source architecture from the beginning. The V architecture will not be hindered by overseas.
