    Mhh I still very much dislike that the CPU will be produced outside of Russia! Russia should build at least one FAB on it's own territory which is able to handle 28-16nm.

    Taiwan.  Elbrus 8C will be built in Taiwan as there is no 28nm FAB in Russia.  Only 65 and higher.  Hopefully they will spend the $1+B in a FAB in Russia.  But right now, it is much easier and cheaper to do it outside.

    The way that processors are made, it is almost like it is 3D printed already. Much like how PCB's are made (where the components are placed on to communicate with each other). Pretty impressive, but expensive stuff.

    Russia to activate "reactor of the future" at Beloyarskaya NPP

    A chain reaction is expected to be launched Thursday in a new-generation reactor at Russia's Beloyarskaya nuclear power plant.

    The plant's specialists will initiate a controlled chain reaction in the BN-800 reactor of the plant's fourth unit, Rosatom Deputy General Director Alexander Lokshin said at a conference on Thursday, marking 60 years of nuclear power engineering.

    The BN-800 or sodium-cooled fast-neutron reactor, dubbed a "reactor of the future", with an 880 megawatt power generating capacity uses the closed nuclear fuel cycle technology that minimizes nuclear waste and significantly widens the range of elements that can be used as nuclear fuel.

    Russia holds the lead in this technology.

    Russian microprocessor firms to challenge Intel and AMD on domestic market

    Russian private microchip manufacturer MCST has announced the launch of the production of Russian eight-core microprocessors, which, the manufacturers hope, will replace Intel and AMD processors on the domestic market. However, some experts are skeptical about the market prospects of Russian microprocessors.


    In early 2014, the Moscow Center of SPARC Technologies (MCST) launched a test production of Elbrus-8C eight-core processors (topology 28 nm, proprietary 64-bit architecture, clock speed 3.3 GHz, computation capacity 250 GFlops). Its development began in 2011 on a commission from the Industry and Trade Ministry, which has invested $24.4 million in the project. The manufacturers promise to produce around 300 Elbrus-8C microchips by the end of 2014. In future, MCST intends to produce servers, workstations and telecom equipment based on its microchips. Elbrus-8C is the first eight-core processor to be made by a Russian company. Several months ago the Industry and Trade Ministry and the Defense Ministry raised the issue of substituting imported electronics, in particular Intel and AMD processors, in connection with the latest U.S. and EU sanctions and the political confrontation over Ukraine.

    MCST expects that the list of potential customers for the new microchip will include major Russian manufacturers of computer equipment such as Depo Computers, Kraftway, and Akvarius. In 2012, Kraftway launched the production of all-in-one PCs based on MCST's previous-generation processor, Elbrus-2C. However, due to the small scale of production, the price of each unit exceeded $3,000, which prevented it from making it to the general market. This time round, according to MCST's Konstantin Trushkin, the company hopes to sell its Elbrus-8C-based products to universities and state structures in the expectation that this will allow it to expand production and thus reduce the price.

    These plans are supported by the Industry and Trade Ministry's statistics: according to it, state companies and organizations purchase about 700,000 personal devices every year worth a total of $500 million as well as 300,000 servers worth $800 million, with the overall market amounting to $3.5 billion. "Elbrus-8C microchips will be made abroad. In Russia, there is no technological capacity for that. Our microprocessors will be manufactured by Taiwan's TSMC," Trushkin said in an interview with the Kommersant newspaper.

    In addition to Elbrus microchips, MCST is working on a more powerful microchip: In May 2014, it signed a contract with the Industry and Trade Ministry for the development of a 64-bit processor, El-16C, with a process of under 20 nm, and eight to 16 cores. The chip is expected to be developed by November 2018 and is proposed to be used for the needs of the Russian Ministry of Defense. Uncertain prospects Experts are not convinced that the new microprocessor has much potential. According to Oleg Kolenchenko, a hardware reviewer at the specialist magazine Ferra, Elbrus microprocessors are unlikely to be in a position to compete with Intel, AMD and IBM. "However, one should not underestimate the significance of work on new microprocessors. The release of the Elbrus-8C is a very important step forward. All the more so since its architecture features several very interesting technologies, especially those to do with security, and the microprocessor performs its defense sector tasks, which it was commissioned for in the first place, very confidently," Kolenchenko

    Intel representatives do not yet see any threats to its operations in Russia either. "We are an American company and, of course, comply with the U.S. authorities' decisions. However, judging by the information about the sanctions that is in the public domain at present, Intel will not have to adjust its operations in Russia in any way," Intel's regional director for the CIS Dmitry Konash has told RBTH. "We do not supply anything directly to the companies on the sanctions list or controlled by individuals who are on the sanctions list. We have a number of clients in Russia who we work with directly, on technology consulting projects." In addition to MCST, there are several more Russian companies manufacturing computers and microchips for them: Rover Computers, best known for its RoverBook laptops; DEPO Computers, which focuses on the production of desktop computers and servers; and Desten, which manufactures home and specialist office PCs.

    One thing I am actually 100% sure of, is any experts who do reviews, are not to be 100% trusted. I used to run my own hardware review site years ago called CanadianTechNews and I ended up closing the site. Anyway, I was paid pretty much by manufacturers to give a certain review of the product (not gonna name names of which company did so). But it is well known that various companies will pay sites like Tomshardware or the like a certain amount of $ plus able to keep the hardware they reviewed, if they give it a good review. Same goes for video game makers.

    That aside, after looking at the only review of the Elbrus 4C through CNews.ru, I can safely say that the processor shows a lot of potential. The fact that it came close to competing against a Core i3 and i5, with having little to no real CISC processor development experience before, besides working on the Elbrus E2K core, has shown Russia is more than capable of producing a chip that can easily compete with the big players.

    Real issue is not the processors itself that will be able to compete, it is the availability, price, location of development and ultimately, the number of third party companies who are willing to produce components for the processor (Northbridge/Southbridge chipsets, Motherboards, integrated networking, coding to take advantage of the architecture, etc). So in order to compete, MCST will have to ultimately open their production so that companies like in China and the like, would be able to create third party components. Same goes for software development. There needs to be a big push, and if there isn't, then the processors, no matter how good they are, will end up staying in the back seat. Add to the fact that Microsoft OS, which is the most used OS, takes advantage of both AMD's and Intel's architectures, while the MCST is not. Thus that is about 90% of the market missing for MCST. So they either have to work on getting MS involved, or have to find alternatives.

    MCST isn't even private either. The one that was private, former boss Babayan, sold it off to Intel (go figure). MCST is still state run I believe.

    Baikal processors through Baikal electronics, subsidiary of T-Platforms may have a higher chance of being a direct competitor (and it will be good for MCST as they will have internal competition), due to the fact that T-Platforms (a major HPC making company) will be using these processors in the development of their cluster systems, which they seem to have a bigger access to the market than MCST as they have super computers built even in the USA. So in this case, T-Platforms Baikal processors (whenever they will end up showing up for sale), could very well be the basic market consumer processor, especially since ARM processors are making a huge push into the consumer market (good for a RISC processor).

    Major drawbacks in all of this? The software. Lack of software developers. Hell, Russia is one of the leading countries in IT development, yet name me big IT companies besides Kaspersky? What about video game companies? There needs to be the demand. Only other way a demand can be created besides government looking and the open market, is if the country is isolated and the average consumer needs the products.

    Russia’s first 300mm wafer size fab in Moscow certified

    Crocus Nano Electronics (CNE), the joint venture founded in 2011 by France’s Crocus Technology and Rusnano, Russia’s state-owned nanotech giant, has successfully completed the certification of its cleanroom in Moscow according to ISO 14644–1 requirements, the Rusnano website announced.

    The cleanroom is certified as the state-of-the-art class 1,000 (ISO 6) in the production area. Now all set to accommodate cutting-edge equipment, the cleanroom is the heart of the first 300mm wafer fab in Russia, which will be capable of processing up to 1,000 wafers per week.

    “Equipment hook-up is expected to occur in the next quarter and we expect to begin process qualification of our fab equipment in September, 2014,” said Mark Dydyk, the CEO of CNE.

    Crocus Technology is a leading developer of magnetically enhanced semiconductor technologies.

    Very good news!

    Although, could be hampered if France tried to. But I doubt it. If in case they do, they can obtain equipment elsewhere.

    Samara team to develop artificial intelligence for industry
    Samara State Aerospace University (SSAU) in the mid-Volga area expects to receive more than a million dollars from the Russian government to cover R&D aimed at developing industrial smart systems to control a company’s resources on a real-time basis, the university announced.

    The team behind the new project includes researchers from a university laboratory specifically set up to back the effort, and engineers from Reasonable Solutions, a local company.

    “The R&D is expected to bring about new artificial intelligence technology called “multi-agent platform for adaptive planning.” It will control industrial resources on a real-time basis with minimal human involvement, thus helping cut overall costs,” SSAU emphasized in its press release.

    The endeavor, estimated to cost a total of $2.3m, is kicking off next month, and the project owners are hoping to complete it within three years.

    Symantec and Skolkovo pen partnership agreement
    Earlier this week Skolkovo, the international tech hub under completion on the outskirts of Moscow, and California-based digital security solutions firm Symantec signed a deal for joint cooperation across a number of segments, reported East-West Digital News, the first all English-language online resource dedicated to Russian digital industries.

    Cooperation will range from educational projects to cooperation in software development. In particular, Symantec will provide mentoring support and advice to companies participating at Skolkovo by helping them create innovative IT products.

    “The development of an ecosystem that offers Skolkovo participants close contact with industry leading companies, scientific and technical experts, engineers and businessmen, access to sources, and the exchange of experience with colleagues from Russia, Europe, Asia and the USA is one of the most important activities of the Foundation,” Igor Bogachev, Executive Director of the IT Cluster at Skolkovo, stated in a press release.

    In turn, Skolkovo will provide Symantec access to technologies and products from Russian innovators, offering the opportunity to use the resources of the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skolkovo Tech).

    Cooperation plans also include the organization of joint activities for the development of business contacts between associated partners and the involvement of new organizations at Skolkovo. The two entities are already involved in overseeing a competition of innovative projects in the field of information security, called iSecurity.

    MSFT/IBM Boomerang'd As Russia Retaliates, Prepares To Cease Imports Of US IT
    With the German economy already suffering (and AMD cutting its outlook), it appears Putin's promise to ensure Obama's action will see retaliation are starting to weigh as much on the rest of the world as Western media suggest US sanctions are weighing on Russia. This time, after blocking foreign cars and Intel/AMD chips, Bloomberg reports the State Duma, Russia’s lower house of parliament, is drafting a bill to require government agencies and state-run enterprises to give preference to local providers of software and hardware. For some context, IBM, Microsoft, HP, Cisco, Oracle, and Germany’s SAP SE had combined revenue of 285 billion rubles ($8.1 billion) from Russia (with 77% coming from government and SOEs). “This all has to do with sanctions,” warned one Russian politician.

    Quite interesting turn of events. Will be good for MCST and Baikal electronics/Kraftway

    Russia to inject pension money into innovation
    The Russian government has unveiled plans to invest part of the Russians’ pension fund deposits in VC funds and also in securities and other financial instruments that high-tech companies have, reported the Russian business daily Vedomosti.

    Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has reportedly asked the Central Bank of Russia, the Ministry of Economic Development and the Ministry of Finance to put together details for investing pension money in high technologies by November 1. The government’s Expert Council is said to be considering allowing the use of both pension reserves and deposits to inject in high-tech sectors up to 1% of the total Pension Fund money.

    According to a recent Council report, Russia’s accumulative pension system had about $92bn in 2013—which means that innovation projects and venture firms may receive as much as a billion dollars in investments from Russia’s Pension Fund. It is an amount comparable to the entire volume of investment in the national venture market last year, estimated RVC, the government fund of funds for innovation.
