"Elbrus-32S": the government department of the Russian Federation ordered a 32-core processor

The government of the Russian Federation took care of high-performance processing of large amounts of information and storage of huge databases. To perform such tasks, which are directly related to cybersecurity, defense capability and the further development of a high-tech country, supercomputers are needed, created on the domestic element base.

On November 20, 2020, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia posted on the public procurement website a large number of applications for experimental design and research work.

The first ROC is called "Development of the Elbrus-32S microprocessor for high-performance servers", code "Processor-21 (SRV)". The cost of the work is estimated at almost 7,49 billion rubles.

The emergence of a universal 32-core microprocessor capable of operating at temperatures from -60 to 90 degrees should be completed by 2025. It should become the foundation for a large number of different computing complexes and systems.

At the same time, ROC “Development of SoC for embedded computing systems based on processor cores with a new generation NeuroMatrix architecture”, code “Neuro-B” was ordered. The cost of the work is estimated at almost 7,632 billion rubles.

In addition, an order was placed for the R&D project "Development of a trusted multicore processor for software routers in secure networks", code "MARCO-240". The cost of the work is almost 6,002 billion rubles.

Also ordered research work "Research and development of promising silicon-carbon of technologies and technologies of heterogeneous integration using nanostructured materials to create new generation elements and devices ”, code“ Progress ”. The cost of the work is 2,89 billion rubles.

There is also an ROC "Development and development in production of a set of trusted microcircuits and special-purpose micromodules, as well as means of ensuring the power of attorney for the process of their design and manufacture", the code "Trust". Cost - 6,690 billion rubles.

And a number of other applications for development. All this indicates that the department is well aware of the importance of the tasks set.

    In Russia, as far as state programs are concerned, these are most likely corruption schemes. In the Amur Region, all projects with state participation in our country are sheer corruption. The eastern cosmodrome, how many scandals and how long the construction took place, the bridge to China - from the Chinese side everything is ready for a long time, from our side another postponement. But the projects of Rosneft and Gazprom - everything is ok.

      Check out the Internet for Gazprom's work. They report on the commissioning of gas branches - and they simply do not physically exist) - Example -

      According to the documents, the contractor completed the work in 2014 and received 1,7 billion rubles, and in fact embezzled the money for himself, depriving the city of Priozersk of gas supply. In "Gazprom", the damage to which is estimated at 800 million rubles, the situation was called "a complete strike".

      The Accounts Chamber refused to respond and respond to the request of "Lenta.ru" regarding the activities of the head of "Gazprom" Alexei Miller in his post, as well as about the size and adequacy of the top manager's salary.

      Thus, the chamber found that the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade in its reports to the Government includes information only on the activities of the 10 largest joint stock companies (JSC), this is only 1% of their total number. As a result, more than 90% of JSCs are in the "gray zone" and their activities are not analyzed in any way. At the same time, many of the joint stock companies are “unstable or have negative dynamics”.

      Note, according to the data of the Accounts Chamber, 97% of federal budget revenues as a whole are provided by only 20 joint-stock companies, that is, 2% of their total number. At the same time, over 500 companies in 2017–2019 did not transfer dividends to the budget at all. Thus, there is no exact data on the rest of the state-owned companies that generate large financial flows.

    Now the first "engineering" samples of Elbrus16S - 16 nuclear ones - have been tested, which showed good results. Probably already paid for the release of the series. These 16Cs are only slightly inferior to Intel's top server processors.

    Well done, cool: cool, cool! There has never been such a volume of ROC in these areas. It's great. Let's make something like a big Switzerland out of the country. And it will work out.
    Good luck to the developers.

    I'm embarrassed to ask - is the processor a tube?
