iRU unveiled systems based on the Baikal-M SoC running a Linux-derived OS developed in Russia.
Company Reveals All-Russian PCs Using an Arm SoC and Linux : Read more
So they are getting away from using things developed in Europe by using unaltered ARM cores that are developed in the UK....Russia has been trying to migrate PCs and servers used by government agencies and state-owned companies from processors and software developed in the U.S. and Europe for several years now.
The same thing as mounting T-34 tank gun "replica" from cardboard on BMW car and painting "To Berlin" on same car doors. It is more cargo cult and corruption than necessity. When Peter the Great returned from Netherlands to Russia, instead of beard chopping he could abolish serfdom and introduce total education of people in all social layers.So they are getting away from using things developed in Europe by using unaltered ARM cores that are developed in the UK....
I like picturing the reservoir as just a straight up bottle of the stuff. No frills, no thrills, just a regular bottle with a special cap on the end for in/out.Custom loop with vodka inside, tap for "users" and hidden replenishment tank behind would be superb for Russian LAN parties.
So perfect for military and government purposes. The rest is not relevant.Nope. These machines are not serious at all, rather replacement for office purposes.
Those in need of real performance will use Elbrus (E2K) based systems. These are quite fast VLIW CPUs with a ton of security features. For example, safe execution mode allows compiler to enforce type-specific restrictions on pointer arithmetic, arrays, structures etc. You can ensure that your application is protected from exploiting memory corruption bugs without using Java, C# or whatever managed mumbo jumbo. This hardware also has x86/x86-64/arm translation layers with ~20-30% performance overhead and therefore is capable of running unmodified proprietary software at near-native speeds, but it’s another story.
