Apple Silicon competition: Huawei MateStation B515

There is a constant effort on the part of some large Chinese companies to stop relying so much on Western technology for the development of their products.

Huawei also operates in the same line and its MateStation B515 is an example of that, a powerful desktop computer developed with the company’s own silicon.

At the moment, some photos and details of this terminal have been known which, in a first phase, will be destined to corporations and government officials. It should then be put up for sale to the general public.


This high performance PC is powered by an ARM chip, the Kunpeng 920, which was developed by HiSilicon and manufactured by TSMC in a 7nm process.

Also, its processors will have four or eight cores clocked at 2.6 GHz.

The rest of the computer, meanwhile, will have standard components. Four UDIMM slots that hold up to 64GB of DDR4-2400 RAM.

Meanwhile, the terminal allows the connection of up to six SATA 3.0 drives for mass storage, in addition to two M.2 SSDs.

There are also four USB 3.0 and four USB 2.0 ports, plus two NICs for gigabit Ethernet.

The Huawei MateStation B515 will have a 23.8 ” monitor with a 1080p resolution, 72% coverage of the NTSC color space, a 1,000: 1 contrast ratio and a 178 ° viewing angle.

Lastly, this sophisticated PC would have an eight-core CPU, 8GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD, plus a DVD drive.

For now, it is not known how much this computer will be worth, or when it will be available to the general public.

Nor is it known which operating system it will use, although it is presumed that Linux could be chosen.
