Russia intends to increase security and reduce its dependency on external trade. So the country has now started manufacturing its own basic electronic devices. They have also begun developing B450 motherboards to benefit from AMD’s steller Ryzen CPUs besides their current custom processors.
Recently, Philax and GS Group of Russia are allianced to manufacture at least 50,000 monitors and 40,000 motherboards. The motherboards are all set while the monitors are being developed. The motherboards have passed all the tests and are certified for government use. For select customers in Russia, they are available to pre-order now.
Moreover, AMD B450 chips are rooted in these motherboards. The design is much similar to the Micro-ATX Asrock B450M Pro4 (as claimed by Tom’s Hardware). They are quite different as these will use in government organizations. They don’t have the same features or the same flashy looks. The miniature drives are do not appear in the list of supported hardware albeit the same m.2 slots as the Pro4.
As per the news, the board “fully meets the basic needs of an ordinary user,”. It backs Ryzen 2000, 3000, and 5000 series processors, up to four 3200 MHz memory sticks like the AMD B450 boards. It features two PCIe 3.0 x16 slots, and support for a TPM (trusted platform module) for more security.
Russia’s GS Group and Philax will produce desktop motherboards and monitors on a broad spectrum in the following 18 months. The GS Group also trying to ally with other firms to enlarge its electronic index. The motherboard for Baikal and Russain Elbrus processors, and the touchscreen monitors for educational institutes are next in the pipeline.
