Well at least AMD is doing better on the security department. Shocker too. You'd think Intel would have figured it out since 1995.

I would not be at all surprised if Intel deliberately did this for performance, after all they have a great past record for screwing the market one way or another

Both companies are just trying to sweep Spectre under the rug since it's less feasible to both take advantage of and fix.
