The list of connectors on the rear panel includes a 25-gigabit Ethernet port, four USB Type-A 3.0 and four USB Type-A 2.0. The Kunpeng motherboard supports dual-core and quad-core processors of the 920 series of the same name. Scaling up to DDR4-3200 and 40 lines of the PCIe 4.0 interface is also provided, which indicates the possibility of using a series of motherboards in the server segment.
It is noteworthy that the boards provide for the installation of Linux and Android. In the future, the company promised to provide guidance on installing cooling systems and installing power supplies, which indicates HUAWEI plans for cooperation with OEM partners.
