Russian government decides all new PCs will use ARM chips

Quote:
Intel and AMD have lost out big time this week in the form of around $1.3 billion in new PC and server sales every year. The reason? The Russian government has decided it no longer wants US microchips inside its hardware.

Um stupid question but what is considered a microchip. Is a cpu/ram/gpu etc considered microchips? The term microchip seems to be so......broad. I am only asking due to amd/intel is usually used in cpu's gpu's and even some ssd's

So if it is to be a new cpu I wonder if they would do anything special to it (such as making ARM chipset motherboards) or if it would be same thing as socket AM3 with Russian label.

In this case I believe they are talking microprocessors, but other chips could certainly contain backdoors. A Guy

Bad for the US economy? Possibly.
But still a darned good idea. Hopefully other countries will follow suit!
There has to be a consequence of bad behavior.

From what I gather, ARM doesn't actually make any of the chips. They create the technology design (intellectual property) then lease the technology to semiconductor manufacturers. The CPUs they design are just a step above RISC processors.

Personally, I don't blame them. Intel has had "spy-ready" hardware and firmware in their chipsets since 2006. It even has it's own memory and communications controller. It's called Intel Management Engine Interface and uses the PCI Simple Communications Controller. It also uses the Host Embedded Controller Interface (HECI) and Active Management Technology (AMT).

I'm guessing but I'd wager that AMD has something similar.

Considering everybody in the west is yakking like spoiled kids about placing economic and political/diplomatic sanctions on Russia, I'm surprised that this is even news.

Together with the recent news that Russia's stopped supplying the ULA with rockets engines for the american Atlas V rocket, I take this as a piece of good and "take that" news.

They want Tegra K1 on their government PCs? What would you use it's Kepler GPU for? Microsoft Office?
