U.S. export controls will boost Huawei chip development in China: Intel CEO



U.S. export controls Huawei chip Intel

Intel CEO – Pat Gelsinger recently said that the U.S. authorities will boost the progress of Huawei chip products in China due to extreme export controls and restrictions. Pat also mentioned how the chipmaking firm will deal with business in China.

During the 2024 Computex Taipei conference, Pat Gelsinger delivered a speech elaborating on the AI chip era. At the same time, the Intel CEO has stated that U.S. export controls indirectly help China and firms like Huawei in chip development.

Pat says that the new U.S. regulations appear as a magic line. It ultimately forces Chinese companies to become more independent rather than relying on others.

He further adds that the U.S. authorities should find another way to shield their nation’s security instead of posing new and stricter rules as these will eventually encourage Huawei and its partners to develop chips with China-made components.

An early report said that the Biden administration reportedly canceled Intel and Qualcomm licenses for selling their cutting-edge chips in China. The government took this step following the launch of MateBook X Pro 2024 equipped with Intel Core Ultra 9.

Intel’s Business Growth:

When asked about Intel’s business progress, the CEO said that things are on track and currently has a balanced supply chain. He also mentioned that Intel carries advanced tools which is a benefit when fighting with Chinese competitors.

The chipmaker will continue to sell its processors in China for better growth and revenue collection. Pat added the following words concluding its response:

“We will continue to export all of our products to mainland China and will provide GPU products such as Gaudi for AI computing.”

Chinese companies like Huawei are now teaming up with native chip producers and suppliers to build their self-developed processors. Some reports even predicted that the firm could step toward 5nm and 3nm chip technology, starting later this year.

Although Huawei has recently said that the company would initially work on the 7nm chip problems, and thereafter think about other matters.
