Chinese 128-Core CPU World Record Expelled From Rankings: No Availability

The SPEC committee has removed the world record results of the Chinese Yintian 710 on the CPU 2017 benchmark, the industry benchmark for CPUs, from its rankings, citing availability issues. We were impressed when Alibaba unveiled his 128-core processor made on his N5 node at TSMC about a year ago. We were even more impressed when this CPU broke some records about five months ago. However, I was a little troubled by the limited availability of preview samples even in Alibaba’s cloud.

“SPEC has determined that this result does not comply with the SPEC OSG general availability guidelines and the SPEC CPU 2017 execution and reporting rules,” said a SPEC statement. “Specifically, the submitter notified SPEC that the requirements for general availability were not met.”
