Pictures of Russian processor Baikal BE-S1000. We know how it is built

The Russians have been working on their own Baikal processors for a long time. Photos of the top Baikal BE-S1000 model, which will compete with Intel and AMD models, have appeared on the web.

The Russian processor will compete with models from Intel and AMD … from 2017

Last December, Baikal Electronics launched a new line of Baikal-S processors. However, these are not gaming models. The units are designed with servers in mind – unlike Western models, the equipment must be free of security flaws and therefore completely safe for government institutions.

During the premiere, the manufacturer boasted about the performance of the top model BE-S1000. According to published benchmarks, the unit should offer similar performance to competing Western models Intel Xeon Gold 6148 (Skylake) and AMD Epyc 7351 (Zen 1) … from 2017.

What’s in the Russian processor?

Baikal BE-S1000 is equipped with 48 cores based on the ARM Cortex-A75 architecture – the base clock is 2.0 GHz, but in Boost mode it can be increased up to 2.5 GHz. The system was made in TSMC’s 16-nanometer lithography process (quite old for the time). The TDP coefficient is estimated at 120 W, which can be a big advantage over the competition.

Fritzchens Fritz acquired a Russian processor and published detailed images of the silicon core. See for yourself:

How is the Russian processor built?

User Locuz prepared a diagram of the processor based on photos of the silicon core. You can see core clusters, cache and DDR4 RAM memory controllers, PCI-Express 4.0 and CIX 1.0 buses.
