AMD, Intel, look away - here’s a new 128-core rival with more transistors than the Apple M1 Max

Chinese bare metal and devoted server purveyor, Alibaba Cloud, has unveiled a new custom made-designed processor termed the Yitian 710, a cloud-first, server CPU developed on TSMC’s 5nm production system (the same as Apple’s new M1 Max and M1 Professional) with a staggering 60 billion transistors.

In comparison, Apple’s processor – the M1 Max – has 57 billion transistors, while the AWS Graviton 2 and the AMD EPYC Rome server processors have about 30 and 40 billion transistors every respectively.
