China-Made Zhaoxin CPU Hits Retail Market

It looks like we'll all be upgrading from our current processors to this thing....not.

The KaiXian KX-U6780A is based on the LuJiaZui microarchitecture. It's rated with a 70W TDP (thermal design power) and sports eight cores and eight threads clocked at 2.7 GHz. The processor has 8MB of L2 cache but lacks L3 cache. TSMC produces the KX-U6780A for Zhaoxin with the foundry's 16nm process node.
