if a computer is in a frame of reference rotating at a high rate of speed, do relativistic issues affect keeping the cpu clock in sync etc?

(just curious. don't have enough math/physics background to fully appreciate an answer but would find it pleasing to know someone who knew it better could tell what would happen :D)

Calculation: 1/2

r_comp = 0.1 # computer radius in m
dtheta_dt = 1e9 # radians/s versus inertial reference frame
v = dtheta_dt*r_comp # lin. speed on boundary
beta = v/299792458 # v in natural units
phi = atanh(beta) # rapidity on boundary
L_m = 2*pi*r_comp # circumf. in m
L_s = L/299792458 # same in s
gamma = cosh(phi)
tprime_offset = beta*phi*L_s
