China bans use of Intel and AMD processors in government computers

China has banned the use of Intel and AMD processors in government computers. China has banned the use of Intel and AMD processors in government computers and servers.

Government agencies will have to use proprietary processors instead of Intel and AMD chips. For this, China has approved 18 names, including Huawei, and Paytm Chip.

Although China introduced new rules last December, they have only been implemented recently. However, there is no clarity on how many chips are used in the government and private sectors.

This policy of China will affect the business of Intel and AMD. China accounted for 27 per cent of Intel’s $54 billion in sales and 15 per cent of AMD’s $23 billion in revenue last year.

This is China’s aggressive move to ban US-made technology. Since last year, China has started using local micron chips in sensitive infrastructure.

Recently, the competition between the US and China continues in the matter of banning technology. The US has imposed sanctions on everything from Chinese chip makers to aerospace firms.

In addition, the Biden administration has banned Nvidia from selling AI and other chips in China. America, Japan and the Netherlands dominate modern processor manufacturing. These countries have agreed to tighten export controls for lithography machines from ASL, Nikon and Tokyo Electron.

Despite these strictures, Chinese companies such as Baidu, Huawei, Xiaomi, Oppo and others have started designing their semiconductors for the future.
