The Fenghua No.1 graphics accelerator, developed by Chinese companies Xindong Technology and Innosilicon, has been certified to meet the requirements of the Tongxin UOS operating system. This operating system was developed by Tongxin on behalf of the Chinese government to replace foreign operating systems. Information shared by the publication ITHomerelating to data from Innosilicon.
The Tongxin UOS operating system is based on Debian Linux and is adapted to run on hardware developed and published in China. Therefore, obtaining local OS compliance certificate is as important for Fenghua No.1 developers as it is for other local PC makers like Zhaoxin, Sunway, and Loongson that produce Chinese GPUs and CPUs.
As shown ITHomeFenghua No.1, launched in November last year, became the first domestic desktop high-performance graphics card that supports 4K resolution and meets the requirements of the domestic Tongxin UOS operating system.
The Fenghua No.1 is based on a 12 nm GPU based on the PowerVR architecture. According to Innosilicon Technology, the graphics accelerator is equipped with GDDR6/6X memory chips with a speed of 19 Gb/s. The storage capacity can be 4, 8 or 16 GB. The set of external interfaces of the accelerator consists of HDMI 2.1, DisplayPort 1.4 and DVI connectors. The card also supports the PCI Express 4.0 interface.
It is noted that Fenghua No.1 “Proved excellent performance, high power efficiency, reliability and compatibility, and support for Vulkan, OpenGL, OpenCL and OpenGL ES graphics APIs”. In addition, it is stated that the card can work in Linux, Windows and Android operating system environments and supports multi-GPU mode.
