China cooks covert chips, recruits global geeks to dodge US restrictions


It is not unheard of, remember when SUN recruited a team from the Russian Academy of sciences to build the servers for the world wide web and designed the SPARK processors or when Vladimir Pentkovski was sent with a team from the Russian Academy of Sciences to teach Intel how to make processors starting with the Pentium = Pentkovsky, ... and teach them multitasking, multi-treading, out of order execution and many other modern processors tricks... The know how is all over the place and China will come out ahead regardless..... The Russians like parallel processing since 40 years ago and favor long instruction set programming and can do the same same job with half the processor speed, heat and node processes... There is a lot of advanced untapped processes in the world that are yet to show up....
