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.
Say what you like, but at least the Russians know how to build quality stuff made to last, unlike the Chinese that couldn’t build a hole without it collapsing. I have a Russian motorcycle from 1971 that still runs strong and a Russian Rigonda portable TV from the 70’s that still works fine, you won’t get anything from the shops these days that lasts that long!
