Just been following the developments of the new Chinese development of CPU's lately, and it's quite interesting. Now I'm not saying that these chips will dominate the market any time soon, but over time there might be some serious competition against the two giants of CPU's - Intel and AMD. The chip, at the moment, is called the 'Godson-3' and is developed by the Chinese Academy of Sciences, after the Chinese government called for it's own computer electronics so it doesn't have to rely on offshore companies (such as Intel and AMD) to supply it with CPU's etc. Here's a nice little summary I found on Fudzilla: It will be interesting to see what happens with this, as the Chinese government will no doubt pump alot of money into this. And we all know how strong the manufacturing over there can be.
