Moscow Center of SPARC Technologies (MCST) has announced it's now taking orders for its Russian-made microprocessors from domestic computer and server manufacturers. The chip, called Elbrus-4C, was fully designed and developed in MCST's Moscow labs. It's claimed to be the most high-tech processor ever built in Russia, and is comparable with Intel Corp's Core i3 and Intel Core i5 processors.

I'd rather have a processor hand-built by the director of the NSA than one designed and built in Russia.

Why are you bringing the U.S. into this? The downing of the plane in Ukraine has absolutely nothing to do with the U.S. Hey, I know it's the cool thing to hate on them all the time, but give it a rest. It's getting old real fast.

Besides, you try to bring a point across that is utterly ridiculous. So now, because they're not a party to the ICC, that makes them not guilty/innocent by default? What kind of bullsh!t thinking is that? I mean, where the f*ck do you people come up with these ignorant ideas? ;)

No, he simply pointed out that the ICC in The Hague has nothing to say in Russia because Russia has not ratified the Rome statute (which recognises the ICC's jurisdiction in very specific circumstances) - just like the USA has not ratified it. People claiming they should be dragged before the ICC are stepping out of line by enforcing their own laws in a sovereign nation that hasn't recognised those laws.

However, the abovementioned fact is completely unrelated to the assumption of guilt or innocence. Your entire second paragraph is nothing but a strawman and makes no sense whatsoever.

The US, Britain and Russia all signed a treaty jointly guaranteeing Ukraine's indepedence in exchange for giving up its nukes.

Russia's fixing of elections and subsequent invasion of the Crimea and sending of troops and armored vehicles into Ukraine is a pretty serious violation of that treaty which obvious means beyond nothing to both Britain and the US.

It's unfortunate that the events have devastated the Ukrainian economy and morale, and allowed for the stupid collatoral damage that would have otherwise probably not have happened.

That being said I suspect the Russian CPU to be much like other russian efforts of the past. Interesting but neither competitive nor compelling.

You're high, right? Because that (or perhaps a reasonably severe head injury) is the only explanation for you posting this.
