The US Treasury Department expanded the list of Russian IT companies under sanctions. Among them are Baikal Electronics and MCST, which are respectively responsible for the creation of Baikal and Elbrus processors.
If US manufacturers were previously banned from providing Russian design centers only with certain programs and technologies, they are now talking about a ban on financial transactions. All trades must be closed by October 15th. At the same time, TSMC has already refused to release ready-made processors.
Experts say the new sanctions will deprive Russia of access to foreign intellectual property, processor architectures and other data. They also block the ability to produce chips in foreign third-party factories.
It was previously reported that they were launching on a computer with an Elbrus 8C processor cyberpunk 2077, GTA 5, The Witcher 3 and Doom.🍉 Streamer broke her PC by blowing up a watermelon – it happened right on the broadcast
