The eight-core chip is manufactured using 28 nm technology. Peak performance of the new processor is 3 to 5 times higher and bandwidth of the input-output channels is 8 times higher compared to the Elbrus-4S microprocessor.
"This is a new generation of our domestic computer technology. At all its stages, the assembly is carried out at our manufacturing sites and at the facilities of our domestic partners. All of this guarantees a high level of the equipment's information security," said Deputy CEO of Ruselectronics JSC Arseny Brykin. "We expect that the first pilot batch of personal computers based on the new processor will be produced by the end of the second quarter of 2017. Today at the CIPR conference in Innopolis, we present prototypes of the new equipment."
The development batch of the dual- and four-processor servers based on the Elbrus-8S will be manufactured by the end of 2017. The new servers are designed to process large amounts of information (in real-time mode, if necessary).
As part of united company Ruselectronics, the Research Institute for Control Computers named after I.S. Bruk carries out development and adoption of the Elbrus hardware and software platform.
