The People’s Liberation Army of China seems to actively use modern processors, FPGAs, and GPUs of major market players.
Based on data from the PLA’s public procurement records, the Center for Security and Emerging Technologies at Georgetown University has reported that the Chinese army can use Intel, AMD, and Nvidia graphics cards, as well as for tasks related to artificial Intelligence.
To narrow down to 11 contracts, the authors of the report looked at more than 20,000 contracts from 2020. The authors also note that many of these contracts are classified and may not be as large as they appear. The authors rightly point out that while it is impossible for anyone to know if the products in these contracts ended up in PLA, those companies are allowed to sell their products to the Chinese army.
