A Chinese GPU from Shanghai Zhaoxin Semiconductor dubbed “Glenfly Arise 1020“, which was tested on an enterprise system, which included its own processor Zhaoxin Kai Xian with a motherboard also made by the company.

Zhaoxin Glenfly Arise 1020

The result of this benchmark under the OpenCL API was disastrous, since it only reached a score of 579 dots. For example, a simple Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 is already moving in 38,000 pointswhile a GeForce RTX 3070 is already pulling on the 135,000.

Obviously, this won’t be his last performance, so this is an engineering sample which still requires a lot of work to deliver acceptable performance, as at the moment of truth its performance would be equivalent to that of a released AMD Radeon HD 6480G or Radeon HD 6410D iGPU in 2011or comparable to a Mali-G52 smartphone GPU from 2018, so there is no point in developing a GPU mid-2022 that is less powerful than a GPU from 11 years ago.

Otherwise, this GPU was accompanied by a Zhaoxin KaiXian CPU with 8 cores and 8 processing threads operating at a frequency of 2.70GHz with 8GB of DDR4 RAM. It has a discrete GPU called Glenfly Arise 1020, with 24 compute units (same term coined by AMD) with 2 GB of VRAM memory. These numbers don’t sit well with OpenCL’s poor Geekbench 5 score.
