RIP Intel? I assume the next gen CPUs will still have the spectre issues because of the long production process?

Let's be honest, AMD have just hired a full time team of Chinese hackers to keep finding back doors and exploits on Intel chips. It's all part of their master plan *insert sarcasm here

They didn't give them a six months notice before publishing? Dodgy and amateur professionalism. TBF Intel do work hand and hand with DARPA so thats most likely where these exploits are coming from..

They worked with intel for over a year. They had enough time.

Pure RISC/CISC is long dead for general compute, ARMv8 is a huge instruction set with lots of specialised add-ons that even includes base instructions like FJCVTZS now (Floating-point Javascript Convert to Signed fixed-point, rounding toward Zero), it's gone a long way from its RISC origins.

I think intel has been doing a 'lake' of cocaine.
