Caption: Historic computer. View of the control desk of a Razdan-3 computer. The Razdan-3 machines were designed at the Yerevan Research Institute in Armenia in 1966. It was capable of up to 20,000 operations per second (20 kiloflops), about half a million times slower than a modern desktop computer. Razdan-3 used ferrite core memory and stored data on magnetic tapes. Instructions were input using punched tape or punched cards. Photographed at the Moscow Polytechnic Institute in 2008.
