Centaur Unveils Its New Server-Class x86 Core

Source: Hacker News

Article note: Centaur is ... still a thing? It looks like a quite modern architecture, both in terms of general design and specifically x86 parts with AVX512 and such. The 32,768bit partition-able SIMD is quite interesting, thought I can't find a damn thing about the details of the architecture. At very least it's compellingly wide. It looks like some of the design is out of Zhaoxin, and they're building on a TSMC process, but it's a noticeably thin press package. I suspect the west may not be the target market, or they're mostly hunting for B2B markets who get different access.
