The fate of Kirin 9000 will be revealed three months later

On August 7, the CEO of Huawei’s consumer business said at the 2020 summit of the 100 people’s Congress of China’s information technology, under the second round of sanctions from the United States, Huawei’s chip production can only continue to the orders before May 15, and the production will end on September 16. This year may be the out of print version of Huawei’s Kirin high-end chips. < p > < p > Huawei is also “angry” to name the new generation of 5nm process chip Kirin 9000, instead of Kirin 1020, which is generally believed by the outside world. Huawei has also made adequate preparations, and has placed huge orders for chips to MediaTek, which are said to be more than 120 million. < / P > < p > the move was interpreted by many media as follows: after Kirin 9000, Huawei will no longer be able to produce Kirin chips. In fact, what Yu Chengdong said is “possible”, not necessarily. Maybe in three months, everything will change completely. As the 45th president of the United States, of course, trump is striving for re-election. As early as September last year, the house of representatives of the United States launched an impeachment investigation against trump. Although the impeachment failed in February this year, it also shows that the American political parties are dissatisfied with trump. However, trump has lost a lot of people’s support due to the poor anti epidemic efforts this year. Therefore, judging from various conditions, Trump’s opponent in the election, Biden, is more likely to win and become the next president of the United States. < / P > < p > If trump cannot be re elected, the new president is likely to lift the sanctions against Huawei. After all, sanctions against Huawei are not very beneficial to American enterprises. Because according to the terms, the chip giant Qualcomm can’t supply Huawei directly. < / P > < p > some time ago, Huawei and Qualcomm reached a settlement on the patent issue, and Huawei paid a patent licensing fee of $1.8 billion to Qualcomm. People in the industry believe that Huawei’s move is to ask for help from Qualcomm, so that future intelligent devices can use Qualcomm’s chips. < p > < p > Qualcomm is also lobbying trump, hoping that the United States can lift the chip restrictions on Huawei. Without the Kirin chip developed by itself, Huawei can still choose to cooperate with other enterprises, such as MediaTek. And Qualcomm is losing as much as $8 billion a year in lost orders. Recent data show that after Huawei joined hands with MediaTek, MediaTek’s chip sales have surpassed that of Qualcomm for the first time, ranking first. Therefore, it is not clear whether Kirin 9000 is really a masterpiece of Huawei’s self-developed high-end chip. In case trump fails in the election, it may usher in a turnaround. As soon as three months later, Huawei will know the fate of Kirin’s high-end chips! < / P > < p > If Kirin chips are back to normal production in a few months, what will be the name of the next generation of Kirin 9000 chips, Kirin 9100 or Kirin 9010?
