I would also be interested in learning more about this
If i remember correctly it wasn't a computer farm that made those predictions it was the GDR military.
So does anyone have these calcs? And this ought to go on >>>/AKM/
>the GDR (East Germany) or USSR set up a massive computer farm
Yeah I highly doubt that.
I think it's clear from a surface level educated guess that they would have won. They had far more troops than the west and were in a good place to capture western Europe. At the same time they could break down imperialism and at least once the west's living standards plumetted then they would have much higher morale and war support. I am butthurt every single time I think about it that the Soviets and the socialist bloc denied us this war. All the more so when there was threats for nuclear exchange between Russia and America. The Soviets sought peace, ostensibly to avoid mass suffering and loss of life but god damnit we could have won and instead the present day is a hell on earth and we are still left with the threat of nuclear annhilation but over tremendously stupider capitalist competition bs reasons.
Both had huge research in computers and cybernetics. Actually a lot of computer research and potential endeavours to automate the entire economy (and save and exponentially grow them) were delayed by bureaucrats whose position was threatened.
soviet industry just didn't have the capabilities of mass producing computers, and they had to rely on the western markets as R&D was beginning to be cut off in the 70s
>>9979>many things used in computers today had ben developed by Soviet computer techs
bump because OP still hasn't gotten his vid
god i wish we used robotrons instead of "pcs"
the model in that pic is literally a PC clonehttps://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_7150
it could run CP/M though which made it way better than actual PC’s
