China gets around tech embargo

Sept 4 (Reuters) - Huawei Technologies and China’s top chipmaker SMIC (0981.HK) have built an advanced 7-nanometer processor to power its latest smartphone, according to a teardown report by analysis firm TechInsights.

It took 4 years but China tech is now building state of the art chips again. Still the goal posts have moved and now state of the art is set by Nvidia and Tesla.

Still. They are building the culture and have 4 times the people to throw at the problem as we do.
