Chinese researchers have developed the country’s first Data Processing Unit (DPU) chip, known as the “third main chip” after Central Processing Unit (CPU) and Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), marking a milestone in the domestic chip industry.

Heterogeneous computing based on the combination of DPU, CPU and GPU has become the mainstream technology of the next-generation intelligent computing centers.

China’ first domestically-developed DPU chip was developed by Beijing-based YUSUR Technology Co., Ltd. using 28 nm process. 

It has the advantages of low cost, excellent performance and low power consumption, and can achieve ultra-low latency of 1.2 microseconds and support up to 200G network bandwidth.

The DPU chip will be used in data centers, financial computing and high-performance computing, according to technicians of YUSUR, whose founding members come from a key state laboratory under the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
