Poisk, 1991. Vintage Russian PC clone. Not really fully compatible but still similar to IBM PC XT. I couldn't wait and decided to inspect and try to turn it on today. It was possible to obtain black and white PAL video  from the back of the home computer and my multisystem security monitor easily digested the signal. The result looks very promising. We will get back to this vintage computer later #vintage #collectable #poisk #oldcomputer #russiancomputer #homecomputer #vintagecomputing #restoration #retrotech #oldtech #retro #retrocomputer

    What CPU is in there? Were there Soviet-era 8088 clones?

    @rin3y The CPU is KM1810VM88 running on 5MHz. Yes, it's Soviet clone of 8088.

    @vitaskhr amazing! An even 5 MHz makes a lot more sense than the 4.77 MHz clock of its progenitor.

    I've seen various Spectrum and PDP11 clones but I didn't know Intel architecture had made it across the wall by then.

    @rin3y There is also similar looking Elektronika MS-1502 selled by the same Ebay seller. Also, USSR manufactured various models of ES-series IBM clones but they were not affordable as a home computer and bulky for collectors :) ES-1841, 42, 45,47,.... Iskra-1030.

    The 1502 looks almost like an MSX - amazing melting pot of designs and architectures

    @rin3y That keyboard MS7007 was shared between different Russian home computers. I have 8080 clone RK86 with exactly the same keyboard. If I'm not mistaken Korvet 8010 is kind of MSX. I was planning to buy one but the condition is too bad. At least they were used in the same network with Yamaha MSX in schools. Nothing survived after kids :)

    Neat! I've always been fascinated by Soviet/Russian computers.
