Russian government is developing ARM Cortex A57 Architecture-based Baikal processor to replace chips made by Intel and AMD.
Russia's Industry and Trade Ministry has announced plans to replace American chips installed in government computers with domestically developed chips.
The Russian government is investing millions of dollars in a home-grown chip project, Baikal, to develop a chip-based on British semiconductor manufacturer ARM Holding's ARM Cortex A57 Architecture with 64-bit support.
Baikal micro processors will be designed by a unit of supercomputer maker T-Platforms in 2015 with support from Russian defence company Rostec and funded by Rosnano.
The first chip to be developed will be Baikal M and M/S with a speed of 2 Ghz, which will be designed for PCs and micro servers while Linux will be OS of choice.
The Baikal project also plans to develop a more powerful version of chip with 16 cores by 2016 to install them on computers of government agencies and state owned companies.
