China is reducing its reliance on chips from the US, specifically those from Intel and AMD. China has recently released guidelines for phasing out United States processors such as Intel and AMD from personal computers and government servers. These procurement guidelines also aim to exclude Microsoft Windows operating systems and foreign-made database software, in favor of domestic government agency options above the municipal level.

Peraya has been tasked with including criteria that require a secure and reliable processor and operating system when making a purchase. In late December, China’s Ministry of Industry issued a statement with three separate lists regarding operating system CPUs and centralized databases that are considered safe and reliable for 3 years after the publication date.

Intel and AMD have not immediately responded to this news. Conversely, the United States is aiming to increase domestic semiconductor production and reduce dependence on China and Taiwan through the Biden administration’s 2022 chip and science law.
