Baikal Electronics has recently confirmed that they have received the first batch of 5000 BE-M1000 CPUs from their foundry, TSMC.
BE-M1000 which has been manufactured by using 28nm process technology has a very trouble-free booking process at TSMC. Owing to the small intersection offices, Baikal has a rather compact shipment that will only be able to supply major customers initially.
The company is aiming to ship 15000 CPUs per month when these CPUs go on sale. Mainly state-owned companies will be distributed with BE-M1000 CPUs by Baikal electronics which include software like Linux Astra OS, Red OS, My office, or VPnet safe boot that are government-approved.
In addition, BE will offer these CPUs to the Russian system integrators, for instance, IRU. The company will distribute All in one system and notebooks based on Baikal processors. Baikal BE-M1000 features Eight ARM cortex A57 cores engrossed up to 1.5Ghz at TDP at 30-35W. The CPU will include 8Mb L3 cache and 4Mb of L2 cache. Adding a cherry on the top, it will feature T628 GPU amped up at 700 to 750 Mhz. The processor will be fine for office use as it offers performance similar to Core i3-7300T.
