Specializing in domestic high-performance GPUs, Muxi IC completed an angel round of financing of nearly 100 million yuan

Recently, GPU chip design company Muxi Integrated Circuit (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “Muxi”) completed an angel round of financing of nearly 100 million yuan, led by Heli Capital and assisted in the establishment.

Mu Xi’s goal is to develop a domestic high-performance GPU with completely independent intellectual property rights, a new patented architecture, and full compatibility with NVIDIA and AMD products. Specifically, the company plans to use the industry’s most advanced 5nm process technology to develop domestic high-performance GPU chips that are fully compatible with CUDA and ROCm ecosystems to meet the computing needs of HPC, data centers, and AI.

According to reports, the founder Chen Weiliang holds a master’s degree from the Institute of Microelectronics of Tsinghua University. He has more than 18 years of experience in GPU chip design. He has served as an executive of the world’s top GPU chip company and is responsible for the overall design and management of the global general computing GPU product line. Other core members of the team include a number of fellow scientists from the same company.

In the recruitment announcement, Mu Xi said: High-performance GPU products are monopolized by the world’s two largest suppliers, AMD and NVIDIA in the United States, and there is no domestic alternative product, so the current and future are severely restricted by international transactions. In the future, we will build a software and hardware team of more than 400 people to realize the smooth industrialization and domestic substitution of this product.

It is reported that Muxi Integrated Circuit was established in September 2020. It has been established for less than three months and there is no product output, but it has been favored by capital, which has also attracted the attention of the new player Muxi IC.
