Russia to use Zhaoxin processors as alternatives to Intel and AMD

-

Intel and AMD are just two of the companies who stopped doing business with Russia and stopped delivery of products in the country and since the need of processors has not disappeared, we’re starting to see Russia is looking for alternatives.

On alternative comes from Dannie, a company with operations in Russia, China and Turkey. The company makes integrated processors motherboards using the SoC design patented by Chinese company Zhaoxin.

And even if it doesn’t have what it needs to compete with Ryzen and Core, at least it is compatible with most modern operating systems and a few popular apps.

The microATX motherboard packs a KaiXian KX-6640MA with 8 cores System-on-Chip, built on the LujiaZui architecture. It packs 4 MB of L2 Cache memory and it provides speeds of between 2.1 and 2.7 Ghz. Besides, it also includes an integrated graphics chip, 16 PCIe 3.0 lines, integrated SATA controller, USB 3.0 controller and essential I/O technologies. This chip is built for personal computers and laptops and the power requirement is only 25W.

The specifications of the Dannie MBX-Z60A motherboard are pretty modest. It comes with two RAM memory slots and two PCIe x16 slots. The motherboard also comes with two M.2 slots: one is for 2280 SSDs and the second is used as a connection port for WI-Fi/Bluetooth adapters. For additional storage the motherboard also has three SATA slots. The I/O panel includes a few USB ports, DisplayPort, HDMI and VGA/D-Sub, Ethernet GbE connection, 3.5 mm jack and two PS/2 ports.

Who’s Zhaoxin ?

Intel, AMD and Apple are not the only ones who make processors. Even if these three are the most popular ones in the world, and the likes of Qualcomm, Samsung and MediaTek build chips for phones and tablets, there are other manufacturers out there. Zhaoxin is one of the companies who enjoyed a boost in popularity following the semi-conductors crisis.

Some of the most popular companies that worked with Zhaoxin is Qnap who launched a NAS that packs a Zhaoxin and Lenovo processor. Lenovo has used a Zhaoxin processor on a laptop they released for the Chinese market, a laptop that was especially created for the Government and state controlled companies that use proprietary software and require a special processors.

Unfortunately for Russia, the integrated solution from Dannie and Zhaoxin is the best alternative. Why ? Because the performance of the best Chinese processors can onlyh be compared to that of an AMD Athlon 200GE processors and KX-6640MA is even weaker so it might handle a few websites and 2-3 smaller apps.
