Rusnano to invest in next gen microprocessors

Rusnano to invest in next gen microprocessorsRusnano, Russia?s nanotech giant, has unveiled plans to fund the development of next gen high-capacity energy-efficient microprocessors based on nanotechnology.

Rusnano, Russia?s largest nanotech company 100% owned by the state, announced last week that its board of directors has approved the funding of a project aimed at developing and commercializing next gen high-capacity energy-efficient microprocessors based on advanced nanotechnology (max. 28 nanometer design rule). Rusnano didn?t disclose the name of the company to further the project; nor did it specify any terms of the agreement. Those won?t be made known until Rusnano and its partner formally close the deal, Rusnano said. Russia?s nanotech giant said that the future microprocessors, to be built on the yet-unnamed project initiator?s innovation architecture, will have higher capacity and lower energy consumption compared to ARM and x86 based analogs currently available in the market...
