U.S. China trade microchip trade battle

New guidelines from China reportedly blocks U.S. chips in government computers

China has reportedly prohibited the use of U.S. processors from both AMD and Intel in government computers and servers. The directive is designed to encourage the use of domestic alternatives.

Chinese government agencies are now required to choose ‘safe and reliable’ domestic alternatives for these chips. The sanctioned list features processors from Huawei and the state supported firm Phytium, both of which face bans in the U.S.

In addition to processors, China is now also restricting Microsoft Windows on government devices, opting instead for domestically produced operating systems.

These guidelines are part of a broader tech trade battles between China and the U.S. While the impact on Intel and AMD remains to be seen, it’s clear that China is taking aggressive steps to reduce reliance on U.S. built technology.

The global tech landscape continues to evolve, and these decisions have far-reaching implications for both countries and the industry as a whole.

U.S. and China trade tensions are unlikely to recede anytime soon.
