Русский корабль - иди нахуй

Quote

If both Intel and AMD stop selling processors in your country, what do you do? Russia decided to look to China. The mounting sanctions Russia faces following its invasion of Ukraine include both AMD and Intel halting chip sales in the country. Finding a replacement x86 chip that can run all the same software is a tough proposition, but one that seems to have been solved.

As Tom's Hardware reports,, motherboard maker Dannie(Opens in a new window) just launched a new micro-ATX motherboard in Russia capable of running the KaiXian KX-6640MA system-on-chip. It's developed by Chinese fabless semiconductor company Zhaoxin, which is a joint venture between VIA Technologies and the Shaghai Municipal Government.

Quote

The good news about the KaiXian KX-6640MA chip is it uses the x86 instruction set and therefore should be able to run the same software developed for Intel and AMD platforms. The bad news is, it's not exactly performant. 

CPU Benchmark tested a four-core, four-thread version of the chip running at 3GHz with a 70W TDP and it scored 1,566 points on CPU Mark( for multi-threaded operations. For comparison, the Core i3-12100F scores 14,427, and a Ryzen 5 5500 scores 19,885. There's a similarly-large gap in performance for single-threaded operations—722 points compared to 3,525 for the Core i3, and 3,084 for the Ryzen 5.

Quote

If you think the performance gap is too wide, the situation is actually worse than that. The chip Dannie is set to use caters to both desktop PCs and laptops, meaning its TDP is limited to 25W and it will run at between 2.1-2.7GHz. The one positive is Dannie selected an eight-core version of the processor, so that at least gives it one advantage over the four-core version scored above.

It's safe to say that the KaiXian KX-6640MA is a chip the Russian government can claim replaces the Western alternatives, but that by no means guarantees it will be able to cope with all the tasks thrown at it. In fact, anything beyond running an operating system and office suite may be a push. With Russia set to legalize software piracy, they can at least experiment a lot to see what will run without spending any cash on applications.

Rostov-on-Don borders Ukraine, so it's not that deep of a strike, but it's hitting infrastructure in Russia proper, that Russia needs to support Crimea/Kherson/etc.

Also, misidentified drone - it's a Ukrainian-made drone.

Very nice hit, definitely did some major damage.

When you add the Donetsk/Donbas buffer how far is it?

lol, best tanks in the world still have tracks.  See Savings Private Ryan or Fury.  Pop the track, it's a 60 ton road block.  Israeli's taught us that and we hones it to a razor edge in Iraq....coordinated armor supported by infantry.  

But that takes, oh, what's the word?  Training.  Lots of training.

damn, if those helos fly any lower, they will cut the fucking grass. 

Those guys are talented.  Never done it, but friend went helo-hog eradicating and those pilots can get you close enough to a running pig that some hunters use bows.....flying sideways so you have an open shot out the door.

Hopefully with some type of rope tied around your waist.

And friends.  We have lots of friends to draft off of.  Just look at our Abrams tank.  British armor, German gun, Israeli APS.

You can't shoot a bow accurately while twisting seated in a helicopter can you?

Who knows, I've videos of guys doing it.  You loosen the straps and sit perpendicular with your legs hanging out the side.  Thwap!

Are the strikes in Russian territory picking up or something?  Or are they trying to force Russia to deploy more air defense systems in Russia proper.

I think they are picking up as well as more resistance behind the lines. Lots of explosions/fire within Russia proper all of a sudden.

 Now go blow up the damn bridge and I will celebrate.

Seems like the soldiers defending Sveredonetsk were given the tough task of holding out while the real action was set up down south.

That Ukrainian media blackout in the Kherson region is a dead giveaway something is up.

If they launch a major offensive on Kherson (more than what's going on now), Russia will have to pull troops out of the Sveredonetsk area, so that would be some relief there.

they're already pulling troops out of Mariupol to head east. 

As far as Kherson - good video from a dude I follow:
