China Prohibits Intel and AMD Chip Usage in Government PCs, According to FT

China has initiated measures to eliminate the use of American microprocessors, specifically those from Intel and AMD, in government-operated personal computers and servers, as reported by the Financial Times. This move is part of broader procurement guidelines aimed at replacing Microsoft’s Windows operating system and foreign database software with domestic alternatives.

According to the report, government entities at and above the township level are now mandated to seek “safe and reliable” processors and operating systems, emphasizing the preference for homegrown technology in their purchasing specifications. 

In a statement issued in late December, China’s Ministry of Industry outlined three lists categorizing CPUs, operating systems, and centralized databases as “safe and reliable,” all of which are produced by Chinese companies, as verified by Reuters.

The State Council Information Office, responsible for the Chinese cabinet’s media inquiries, has yet to respond to requests for comment on this development. Similarly, Intel and AMD have not provided immediate feedback regarding the report.

This strategic shift in China’s tech procurement policy occurs amidst efforts by the United States to strengthen its domestic semiconductor industry and diminish its dependency on Chinese and Taiwanese supplies. 

The CHIPS and Science Act, enacted by the Biden administration in 2022, seeks to revitalize the American semiconductor sector, offering financial incentives and subsidies for the production of cutting-edge chips within the country.
