Never give up, Xiaomi research and development of surging chip 6 years failed, Lei Jun confirmed that encountered great difficulties!

Among domestic smart phone manufacturers, Huawei is the first and the only mobile phone brand that has the capability of self-developed chips and has tasted a lot of benefits. If its Hisilicon chips are not limited by external factors, its performance and product iteration have already caught up with world-class manufacturers, such as Qualcomm and apple. Other manufacturers such as Xiaomi and ov are still groping forward. Among them, “surging chip” developed by Xiaomi was once a flash in the pan. In 2014, Xiaomi founded a wholly-owned subsidiary named pinecone electronics, which opened the way of self-developed chip. After three years of exploration, finally in 2017, Xiaomi officially launched the surging S1 chip for the majority of users, and released the first model carrying the chip, namely Xiaomi 5C, which is positioned at the low-end products. < / P > < p > at that time, the surging S1 chip made many people’s eyes shine. It was designed with 8-core CPU architecture, with four 2.2GHz frequency A53 + 4 1.4GHz frequency A53, and GPU used four core mail-t860, based on 28nm process. Although the performance is at the low-end level, as the first generation of Xiaomi self-developed chip, many people are looking forward to the “surging series” to be bigger and stronger. However, three years later, no new products appeared after the surging S1 chip. Nowadays, Xiaomi’s smart phones basically use high-tech or MediaTek chips. Many people have forgotten to research and develop their own chips or think that Xiaomi has given up its R & D work. Facing all kinds of questions, Lei Jun finally gave the official answer on the 10th anniversary of Xiaomi. < p > < p > Lei Jun said: “we started to make surging chips in 2014, and released the first generation in 2017, and then we really encountered great difficulties. But the plan continues. I’ll let you know when there’s new progress. ” The meaning of this sentence is nothing more than that Xiaomi did not go smoothly in the development of surging chips, but even so, he did not give up at all and was still carrying out research and design in silence. In fact, this is also expected. Although we are all using the public version architecture of arm now, the self-developed chip itself needs to invest a lot of capital, human and material resources, time and energy, and it is likely that the previous achievements will be wasted and the loss will be lost. Xiaomi, which has entered the world’s top 500, is able to support this loss, but it will take some time to achieve substantial results. < / P > < p > it’s not just Xiaomi. Huawei’s blockade situation in the past two years tells us that if a domestic smartphone manufacturer wants to go abroad or make sure that it can gain a firm foothold in the future, it is one of the necessary conditions to have a self-developed core advantage. Therefore, we can see that oppo is also working on chip design, which is bound to be an extremely long and difficult experience Cheng, but once it breaks through, it means that the future will be infinitely broad.
