    Curious.
    well if we look at sochi example as a microcosmos, which is a small part by teritorry and population of Russia, tens of billions are neede to get very good results... although other regions wont be needing such extravagance and corruption should be reigned in,  still trillions are required for russian infrastructure as in the whole country.

    @ Hannible
    I agree with you 100% on that. But for the things Russia does not produce in, they will have tp put money and time into it. Like a replacement engines for their MaRussia sports cars or alike.

    Maybe they will start spending big $$$ on processor tech now after the tplatforms debacle so Elbrus 8C will actually get released on time and on specs as mentioned.

    Sochi is a semi decent example. It was a location that has not seen development (besides dachas) in Sochi. They built a village or two from scratch and tearing half the city apart to develop for it. The price was astronomical. Wouldnt be that bad for various other locations. Kazan Universaid games did not even come close to costing that much and they were able to upgrade a lot of the infrastructure. But then again, regional head and his group in Tatarstan is very competent.

    CEO of Russia’s Sberbank says Russia is Europe’s most attractive country for investments

    MOSCOW, January 24, /ITAR-TASS/. Russia is now the most attractive European state in terms of investments, President of one of Russia’s biggest banks, Sberbank, German Gref said in an interview with the Vesti-24 television channel.
    “I think that Russia is still a very attractive region for direct investments,” he said. Sberbank is an international company, we are present in 22 countries. I have been often asked - which country is the most attractive for our investments in next five years? It is very simple to answer this question - we have just approved our five-year strategy, where we have analyzed all European and Asian markets. And the Russian market appears the most attractive one among all European markets.”

    With 25% more businesses opening in Russia last year than year before, Russia is a great area for attraction in terms of investments. Titanium Valley, Skolkovo, and the other various technoparks and industrial parks. But as Hannibal has said, investments may not be there due to politics. Ultimately, they need to build themselves up without foreign investments and support.

    Ok I had a quick look at the article and tried to search for some official figures.

    So here is something from Finance Ministry as of Dec 1 , 2013

    http://rupaper.com/post/16541

    The total debt of regions and municipalities for December 1, 2013 made about 1,49 trillion rubles. About 14 percent of all regional debt were the share of Moscow.

    1.49 trillion rouble if I take USD value at 34.5 comes to ~ $52 Billion out of which 14 % is provided by Fedral bank about ~ $7 billion

    So total regional and Public debt is ~ $270 billion.

    Considering these debts are in Rouble and not in USD , I dont think its much cause for worry compared to external debt.

    Exactly. It was just one of this articles written with the sole purpose of creating a negative impact.
    Just to repeat the completely wrong by the scientific point of view term stagnation a few times and cast doubt open A PART of the total debt,
    to demonstrate that Russia's economic outlook is negative.
    For those who wonder this is exactly what they tried to do with China's corporate debt as well.
    All too common, low level Yankee propaganda.
    Actually they are so bad that they can't improvise, they just repeat the same tricks again and again.

    Having said this, I consider Stratfor one of the very best sites about geopolitics.
    2/3 of their articles is stupid propaganda but the remaining 1/3 are true masterpieces IMO.

    Yes its all PR value create FUD about Russia and China .....Stratfor is nothing but a front end tool of US Agency masked in Civilian Clothing.

    I like little respect for these sites , Stratfor , The Economist ....the list is endless

    Check the latest Public Debt Clock this seem updated one

    http://www.economist.com/content/global_debt_clock


    The good thing for China is the West wont be able to do any thing that would hurt China economy without hurting itself equally bad so they are very cautious about when dealing with China ....nothing on official level.

    Russia economy has to face hurdles not just from media and bad PR but also Western Government who would like to bring hurdle ( check for Gazprom problem with West ) in order to hurt the economy.

    It's about reaching a threshold or loosing a threshold in terms of size, growth and trade, Austin.
    Russia and India doesn't reach this level yet, Russia actually might never reach given her population.
    USA are about to loose theirs.
    Interesting times ahead.

    True , Its highly unlikely Russia would reach the threshold , but may be by 2020 , Russias GDP nominal would cross GDP of Germany.

    Hopefully Russian Hard Power would be enough to deter even the largest and powerful country

    China is in a different league for sure.

    This is Interesting on Russian plans to maintain the current level of oil output

    http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/01/21/russia-oil-forecast-idUSL5N0KV0N920140121




    Energy Minister Alexander Novak told Reuters last month that breaks should help Russia keep production at a minimum of 10.1-10.2 million bpd in coming years and could lead to an increase to 10.8-11.0 million bpd before 2030.


    In its annual outlook, oil company BP said Russia and South America would join the United States in tapping shale oil over the next two decades, contributing about 1 million bpd of shale oil each by 2035.

    It shouldn't be a surprise to anyone, I suspect Gazprom went along with the idea of "Russian Peak Oil" because it helped drive oil commodity prices up...No major oil company is stupid enough to say "There's enough oil for everyone, many times over...so yeah commodity oil speculators, please keep the price of oil down!" There's a fine line between having enough oil for large economies to live on, and restricting over-pumping to keep oil prices from dropping.

    ...The last person who was stupid enough to give oil away at bargain-basement prices was *drum roll*....Saddam Huessin, and look what happened to him!

    For now, Russia's main competition will end up being Germany, with the aid of France and maybe Germany itself (Germany will sell anything it seems). Majority of its products excluding automotive is a direct competitor. MaRussia was created to be a competitor to Jag, Corvette, Lamb, ect. But still not close enough to being there yet. But on the heavy industrial scale, I would say it is more about a direct competitor (They do build automated CNC and other machines, but only really sold in CIS countries as of right now). Coming years will be interesting.

    China is a direct competitor to USA, as its population can sustain itself if trade war did happen between the two (China has the ability to produce on their own since majority of their manufacturing can still churn out what they want and they still have over a billion pop to purchase said goods. As well, a lot of control from central gov, so any blow could be minimal.

    Not so fast, there was a question earlier if the uotput is the same and prices are high why doesnt russian economy grow stronger and ill answer that and some other.

    The new resourses are expencive, and that oil is harder and harder to get , increasing extraction cost eats away the profit form sold quantities, so while Russian production maybe the same,profits from that production are decreasing all the time ,thus yielding smaller and smaller returns to the government...
    Not to mention growing internal consumption because of stronger economy ,we know economic growth follows energy consumption growth ,leaving even less oil for export.
    Same is with shale because of expenses ,thats why conventional sourses still rule in Russia ,and why todays investments are not measured in millions but billions and take more time to get the oil to the markets.
    There are number of solutions: put most the profits into renewable energy expansion/hydro/tidal/geothermal/increase efficiency ,change some peoples habits /beter insulation /mass transit.

    MaRussia is nowhere. The companies you list are mega in auto industry. Don't know if this gonna change but still MaRussia is one man's dream, certainly not in the process of getting hot in supercar industry.
    BTW can you post information about Elbrus 8c? I checked via google again. Still nothing. It would be even better if you can provide me with a shop to order online.
    You see in modern times CPU industry is shamefully easy. Just get a shop online, blow the benchmarks and next day Intel files for bankruptcy...

    It isn't out yet.  I have already stated this multiple times that Elbrus 8C is for 2015, 4C is sometime this year.

    http://mcst.ru/vosmiyadernyj-mikroprocessor-s-arkhitekturoj-elbrus

    They sell monocube through Kraftway running off of Russia's Elbrus 2C+

    http://20.mcst.ru/Monokub-PC/#2012

    or all in one

    http://20.mcst.ru/km4-elbrus/#2012

    Comparable to most high end Intel Atoms running at similar power consumption or less.  With DSP, better at multimedia.  And it will not be able to make intel bankrupt, as you know yourself (you said it) politics get in the way.  Sorry, it will probably not even enter the market in its own form, but something already set up as HTC's themselves.  They don't operate on a standard socket basis like Intel or AMD since those two companies have contracts with various others to make motherboards, while Kraftway really is the only one for MCST.  Elbrus 2C+ was designed on same characteristics as what PAK FA's radar needed for real time data transfer and processing.

    If you do not believe me on what has been happening, then look at what T-Platforms had to deal with regarding blacklistings from USA.  Same would happen with MCST to sell abroad.  Elbrus 4C is for industrial equipment.  And I already linked on Multiclet cell processors.  If you are interested in purchasing one (If you know coding in C/C++ and PYTHON) then give it a try.

    As well, they will have hard time since both Intel and AMD has too much influence in CISC instruction sets that is required under windows OS. So it would have to run under KNE or BSD based OS (Linux like Debian or Unix). So it has to actually compete with Sun (Oracle now) and Fujitsu company.

    MaRussia, for being one mans dream, owns a formula 1 team and introduced a new SUV. It is trying to compete with Lambo as they have low rate production and specialization.

    BTW, they have a plant opened in Finland

    There is no hard evidence, but what was requested in need of a processor for the PAK FA's N035 AESA radar was very similar to the build of the Elbrus 2C+ microprocessor (so on MP.net, it was assumed that it is the processor).  DSP Cores, being RISC, are significantly more efficient at processing real time media data (like processing information from radar to the pilot), and the Elbrus 2C+ is a dual core CISC processor (its 90nm topology is built around same concept of Intel i960 for military, higher resistance to Electro magnetic pulses) with 4 Elvees DSP Cores.

    Completely missed the part where they are making an APU as well. Based on their CISC processor, having an integrated Graphics core.

    Their other developments seem to be aimed at industrial equipment:

    http://mcst.ru/modul-comexpress

    Makes sense really. Now with Multiclet having an OS (Based around machinery), then it seems that an internal competition for microprocessor development is happening.

    As well, future development of Elbrus is aimed at domestic production rather than Taiwan. Guess Micron will get it: http://mcst.ru/razrabotka-mikroprocessora-s-arkhitekturoj-elbrus

    Honestly amazes me how many experts we have on processor architectures here and on mp.net

    Hell I studied it, or at least computer architecture in general, a semester's worth - and I still don't understand more than half of what you guys are yammering on about all the time.

    Sorry, i dont mean to agitate but sometimes I read what is said wrong, so I appologize if I was rude.

    Anyway, I would love to get my hands on a Epbrus R-1000 processor (specifically that model), Debian OS, and see what my wife can do with her programming as she is talented in Java, ASP.net and Python. Would be nice as maybe I could one day be a distributor of Russian products on the market. I know, big dream.

    But on the same token, im not sure how they implement it in an HPC enviornment. I look at their products and I see that it isnt simply a motherboard but some module with a proprietary connection (looked similar to whay CISCO uses in their fiber connection on their 6500 series. So it would be interesting to see how modular and expandable it is. As seen, they sell a module that has 4 R-1000 cores on it, and so that would mean a total of 16 cores per module. Once they have DDR3 memory controller installed (most of their processors have an IMC), then it would seem impressive in terms of pure calculations/number crunching, and would be a good alternative to T-Platforms. What hurts then though is lack of options for perfs. For example, you cannot change out the processors. But you would have to change the entire module and or motherboard (all processors are soldered in). I am looking forward to the R-100M (using lower powered transistors that will allow it to run at 15w of power with similar performance) and their Elbrus 4C. Im keeping my fingers crossed on that. But I doubt we will see their processors on anything other than specialized equipment.

    As for MaRussia, I heard their products are solid. But like a lot of other things, they are late to the game and thus does not have a name. And well, it makes the biggest difference is the name. People still purchase an Audi (even though bad track records are increasing in terms of maintenance) in pretty high numbers.

    Hell I studied it, or at least computer architecture in general, a semester's worth - and I still don't understand more than half of what you guys are yammering on about all the time.

    I work in the field were we run various servers for SQL operations and virtualization, along with a massive line of networking (what I mostly deal with). I am learning some of this stuff every day. When my father worked for the US airforce back in the 80's, they used RISC processors for everything (and still do). So he would always explain to me the difference. When he gets too technical, it becomes confusing. Biggest difference between the two is that RISC processors are specialized processors to run 1 specific task, and will not move onto another till previous is done. They do not run instruction sets (well, they can but usually dont have then) thus they are all built around to do a specific task. Hence why you have MIPS, SPARC, ARM, PowerPC, ect. They run very optemized instructions and have better memory management. CISC on the other hand can do multiple tasks at once, of all types, and has various instruction sets for various tasks. They can handle both complex and not so complex jobs. But cannot do it nearly as efficient. All comes down to architecture. Hence why you see lower powered and lower speed RISC stomp a new CISC in number crunching but a CISC stomp the RISC in other categories. They have their ups and downs. I dont know much about the Intel i960 but the competitor Elbrus 2C+ uses both CISC (the dual core itself is its Elbrus S processors (with some instruction sets that are open source since AMD's and Intels copywrite protection is no longer valid) and 4 RISC DSP (Digital Signal Processors) in the mix to handle other tasks individually. Great for powerful radar systems and comm systems, but maybe not so much in other tasks. As for the other processors like MIPS, ect. I dont know too much about them as they are pretty rare.

    All that said, MCST tries to keep it all legit (Rather than Chinas semiconductor industries), in hopes their products will sell outside of CIS, but it isnt happening it seems. While AMD and Intel became quite powerful by either copying from others or each other, bypassing the laws on copywrite. Very hard to find an honest, large company these days.

    And dont worry Python, im still learning day by day about architecture designs and understanding. Its a never ending battle.

    Hmmm... Very interesting, it looks like MCST got some rough roads ahead, but at the very least there trying to keep thing legit.
    So either way it's gonna be a while before i can buy an Elbrus processor from my local electronics store,

    About those instruction sets, you mentioned before that Intel/Amd had them patented, and without said instructions the Elbrus chips will not work with windows, but will work with KNE or BSD OSs, you weren't very clear about the Linux Based OSs?
