Ruijie RG-CT7800 release is one of many steps to implement China’s import substitution strategy.
The source talked about the mini-PC Ruijie RG-CT7800, which is interesting in that it uses the Zhaoxin KaiXian processor developed in China.
The Zhaoxin KaiXian KX-U6780A configuration includes eight x86-64 cores, 8 MB L2 cache, a dual-channel DDR4-3200 controller, PCIe, SATA and USB interface controllers, and a graphics core with DirectX 11.1 support. The chip is manufactured according to the 16 nm standards at the TSMC capacities, that is, strictly speaking, is not a continental China product.
The RG-CT7800 comes with 8 GB of DDR4 memory, a 256 GB SSD and a regular set of ports such as USB and Ethernet. The computer is compatible with UOS and NeoKylin – localized variants of Linux.
The release of the Ruijie RG-CT7800 is one of many steps to implement the Chinese import substitution strategy, known as “3-5-2.” The numbers in the title of the strategy correspond to the import substitution targets set by the government: 30% by the end of 2020, another 50% by the end of 2021, the remaining 20% by the end of 2022. To fulfill this plan, the Chinese electronics industry has already mastered the production of key components of modern PCs. The source notes that the first RG-CT7800 mini-PCs can be intended only for government customers.
