It makes an interesting question about if they will be doing exports as well? Such a product could make an interestin appliance server, NAS or SDN device. Or if they could make some generic industrial PCs for export.

Sanctions and their impact

The Baikal rep said sanctions dont directly affect chip prices or availability. They are focused on individuals, businesses and officials. However the Russian currency has lost as much as 40% of its value against the dollar, presumably making those Broadcom et al chips harder to afford

Hi cd,

 

Read a little lower and see "...and are made in a 28nm TSMC process."

Baikal is fabless, so who fabs them?

The competing products from Broadcom et al. have gone through many generations already and have extensive software support.  How competitive can Baikal's offering be in performance?
