Intel attempts to block performance comparisons in Spectre update terms and condition

An Intel ban on benchmarking?



Read more about Intel's benchmark prohibiting firmware terms and conditions.

I will admit that I will never have an AMD system and I love Intel.....however this is absolutely batshiit crazy. There is absolutely NO WAY that this is going to hold up in court.


Intel is scared crapless....that's all there is to it.

I didn't really need more reasons to go with Ryzen on my next build, but more reasons always help. Makes the decision so much easier.

I would love to know your reasoning.

Would you stay Intel even when AMD are 1/2 the price of Intel with more IPC and performance?

Does this mean this new update is really going to effect performance and they don't want people knowing just how bad it will be ?
