I'll make my guess it's some sort of processor based on MIPS architecture. So the system will have three different types of processors working together: x86 CPUs from Intel, GPUs from AMD/ATI and China's own MIPS CPUs. I'd say it's quite some integration going on here and definitely not Lego.
China is behind U.S in CPU design but who else isn't? And we're at least catching up.
For example, Ingenic, a privately-owned Beijing company, is exporting CPUs it designed (based on its XBurst architecture) to the U.S to be used in Linux netbooks. Of course those are processors used in lower-end devices, but it does make one feel good that we're now exporting CPU designed and fabricated in China to the United States. First step is always important no matter how tiny it is.
