In “Baikal Electronics” they noted that they won the competition for the development of new modern processors and are interested in their entering the market as soon as possible.
The first subsidy amounted to 3.8 billion rubles. The money will be used to create a 12-nanometer Baikal-L processor for notebooks. It will be based on four cores of the ARM architecture – Cortex A710. A laptop on such a processor will be analogous to Lenovo ThinkPad L 13 on Intel Core i7. The first engineering samples of the chip will be received in 2023. The estimated cost of the processor will be around $ 100.
But the second server processor Baikal-S2 will be made using 6nm technology. 5.64 billion rubles will be spent on it. The processor will have to become an analogue of AMD Epyc 7763 (Milan), which is just being developed. Engineering samples will be received in 2025.
