Russia claims its new hypersonic weapon is ready for war

  • Russia’s defense minister on Friday declared a new hypersonic weapon capable of striking the United States is ready for war.
  • The hypersonic glide vehicle, dubbed Avangard, which Moscow has been developing for three decades, is designed to sit atop an intercontinental ballistic missile.
  • As it stands, the U.S. does not have a defense against hypersonic weapons, which can travel at least five times the speed of sound, or a little more than a mile per second.

Chinese CPUs Now Work On Domestically-Produced Operating System

MyDrivers reports that China’s homegrown Zhaoxin processors are now operational with its self-developed Unity Operating System (UOS). The news come on the tail of new Chinese government restrictions that force Chinese institutions to replace all foreign-powered PC hardware and software with domestically-produced products over a three-year span. Tongxin Software, the developer behind UOS, has been able to get the KaiXian processors to work on the desktop and server versions of UOS, respectively. The Chinese CPU maker has already laid out its ambitious plans for the company’s next generation of processors. Source: Tom’s Hardware
