Russian ATMs abandon x86 CPU and use Elbrus self-developed processors next year.
Due to the withdrawal of companies such as AMD and Intel from Russia, the country cannot use chips from European and American companies, and can only turn to self-developed processors.
Not only do supercomputers use CPUs from Russian companies, but now ATM machines also use self-developed Elbrus processors.
Although up to 8 cores, the performance is about the x86 level of 10 years ago.
According to Russian media reports, the Russian BFS company said that they plan to mass-produce their own ATM machines, which are expected to come out in February-March 2023, with the first batch of about 1,500 units.
These domestic ATM machines will use Russia’s Elbrus processor, and the supporting software system is also self-developed. In addition, it has its own characteristic design.
BFS company said that its technical level will meet the needs of the market and will not lose to foreign products.
BFS did not mention the specific situation of the Elbrus processor, but it has been reported before that the Elbrus processor is the fourth-generation 64-bit ARM architecture of the Russian MCST, up to 8 cores, frequency 1.3GHz, equipped with 4MB L2 cache, 16MB L3 cache, 28nm Process manufacturing, floating point performance 250GFLOPS.
As for performance, there have been some tests before, and the performance is slightly lower than AMD ‘s Phenom II X4 965 processor, only about 1/5 of the Core i7-7700K processor, which is equivalent to the x86 level more than 10 years ago.
Fortunately, the performance requirements of ATM machines are not very high, and this is also an area where CPU replacement is easy to achieve.
