What do you do with it after you manufactured it? Are they planning to sell it to compete with Intel and AMD? I certainly hope that's the idea, we need a 3rd player in the desktop CPU market.
Quote from: Daniil on December 16, 2015, 08:51 AMYes, I can buy high end PC for a price half of this.But, first of all, now this PC is more a server solution, or a computational device than a PC for users. 24 gigs of memory useless for most of users, but required if you calculating something big in apps like ANSYS of SIEMENS PLM. Video card here is also not for gaming but for GPGPU calculations.Today this "Elbrus" isn't a good buy, but the tendency looks good - less than a year ago I can't even imagine that MCST will start to sell their processors to private users.
Quote from: Vasudev on December 16, 2015, 12:13 PMJust now, I saw its specs and pricing is competitive. 250GFLOPS on CPU is incredible and I'd pay anything for getting that and also TDP <100W which is more future proof system but its sole purpose is for very intense file server or a compute server. i'd go with fury x since it has more compute power.
