Washington imposed large-scale sanctions against China in the field of semiconductor technology

Beijing will no longer be able to purchase artificial intelligence-related chips, equipment for their independent production, and other high-tech products from abroad. This happened because Washington imposed massive sanctions against China in the field of semiconductor technology.


This message was made by the British media corporation BBC, referring to the US Department of Commerce.

At the same time, restrictions are imposed not only on products created in the United States, but also on products manufactured using American technologies or equipment anywhere in the world.

Officials from the United States paid the most attention to graphics cards, which are used to increase the speed of artificial intelligence programs in supercomputers, as well as in a number of other high-tech areas.

The new rules require companies wishing to ship sanctioned products to China must apply to U.S. government agencies for a license. In most cases, such applications will be rejected, but not always.

These restrictions apply to 28 Chinese companies.

According to the observations of experts, Washington has not taken such large-scale restrictive measures against China since the 90s of the last century. It is assumed that they will slow down the development of a number of sectors of the Chinese economy and weaken its defense power.

        First, late, China learned to copy and create.
        Secondly, it makes no sense, taking Taiwan back home, China will get it all anyway.
        But how long the United States will work without Taiwan, the question is

            It was enough to promise not to touch their accounts. The largest billionaires in Asia still live in Hong Kong.
            So Taiwan will get it. Not with the current US-bought government. With the next, or after.

          and given that technology is not a 2-year-old factory with chips, but what is on paper and what is being built now is yesterday in Taiwan. And considering how much they pour into Ireland and Germany and on their continent the United States into this industry, it is clear that they are curtailing Taiwan. everything will be in NATO territories and at home.

        How is it than? President Xi then loudly declared that China is ready to help Russia, but without violating the sanctions imposed on Russia. In fact, it was an agreement with the sanctions against us. Only it did not help China - now they have arrived. I won’t even remind you about Pelosi’s grandmother - she also promised China a lot of things in a bad way then. And so far, the Americans are fulfilling their promises, in contrast to the dragon and us.

They sent many of their specialists to our institutions - to complete their studies in materials science. Not just the same. Especially for high temperature resistant materials.

            They have their own at 28nm (it is difficult to confirm, because they are very secret), this is just the minimum for something computational for today and the basic technology for smaller nanometers. They threaten to get to EUV soon in the horizon of 5 years.
            With chemistry, they have the same relatively norms. They have enough specialists in all areas, they buy heads in the bud even in the states (they give double triple salaries), I am silent about Japan, Taiwan and South Korea. It is also great with academic and applied science, probably they are already in first place in scientific work in the world.

    I think that Comrade Xi understands that after Russia he is next. (True, somehow early the Yankers "wrote us to the scrap." Although it seems that the successes of Ukroreich and Bidon turned their heads.)

      He understands, but he wanted to sit by the river and wait for the corpse of his enemy to swim laughing
      No Xi will not be able to sit out bully

    The Americans are pushing the Chinese to go to war with Taiwan with their foot in the back. And all in order to declare China an aggressor and freeze its trillion-dollar debts to China. This is how America gets rid of its external debt bit by bit...

      Taiwan is an outpost of the USA .. The question is very tense, I think China is waiting for Russia to resolve the issue with Ukraine and then it will be Taiwan's turn .. This is their legal territory!

    Now the PRC will quickly get rid of US government bonds, and most importantly, the time for Taiwan to return to its "native" harbor will be reduced .... which will affect the entire world industry and part of the economy ...

    Well, Chairman Xi, did you think that if you don’t support us with electronics, you won’t be touched? Alas, a new reality, new rules...

    I wonder whose leadership is more toothless: Russian or Chinese?
    China has 10 times the economy, 10 times the population. Apparently Chinese.

    American technology is becoming increasingly toxic due to such attacks. The more countries in the world are affected in one way or another by such specifics on the part of the United States, the less will be the demand for American everywhere where the elites assess the risks, and the more willing they will be associated with something alternative. It is also worth understanding that we are waiting for an unprecedented flourishing of "gray supply chains" and copyright and patent infringement in connection with this. The more global and expanded this process becomes, the more difficult it will be for the US to "give back", the more corruption schemes will corrode the US itself.

    In response, some people will lose rare earths and energy carriers with which the Chinese have become agile to make a profit.

    First, late, China learned to copy and create.
    Secondly, it makes no sense, taking Taiwan back home, China will get it all anyway.
    But how long the United States will work without Taiwan, the question is

    Unfortunately, he has not yet learned to create, and by copying and producing he depends on the key things of the capitalists

    This is a direct push for China to take over Taiwan,
    production of chips of the latest generations - there.
    Apparently, the Americans are ready for the second Pearl Harbor,
    both mentally and physically.

      As soon as people who are ready to work in the future and defuse mines during the operation are reliably interested. In addition, an interesting question concerns external Taiwanese property, for which there are also options for ownership.

    And now, what will the 20th Congress decide on this matter?
    US Department of Commerce October 7 this year imposed restrictions, they take place a week before the Chinese Communist Party holds its 20th Congress.
    Previously reported:
    Chinese strategist Sun Tzu emphasized: "War is a way of deception"
    If China's plans include an offensive operation against Taiwan in the near future, a message should be published (PLA to prepare to take control of Taiwan by 2027), which the CIA will definitely be interested in and consider that China will indeed wait 5 years before acting. Deadlines can be multiple...
    yes
