And Intel again give AMD more momentum, and no doubt still don't drop the prices of their CPU's.


Someone give intel a gun and just let them finish themselves off.

ChromeOS has actually already pushed an update that disabled HT automatically. Good on Google for being so quick.

Is it just me or is there no reason to be worried about all of these vulnerabilities that are discovered on Intel CPUS? Considering that the majority of users on this forum are on Intels platforms (I assume atleast?)...
Would it maybe be better off going with 3rd gen Ryzen when it launches or is there not really any reason to panic regarding all of this? As again, considering that the majority of PC in the world is on an Intel plarform.

Who cares about security, price or upgradability right? So long as you get 4 frames a second more on a game and your synthetic benchmarks show your the fastest.
If apple and Microsoft decide that ht needs to be disabled Intel had better hold on, I don't know if this roller-coaster has restraints, it certainly has bodged the other security checks.
AMD ceos must be having a party right now

Would love it if someone researched performance showing total IPC loss of these vulnerability fixes and then retested CPU's like for like over the past decade. Bulldozer may even grab a couple of wins (posthumously )

Yeah Google are now forcing HT off on ChromeOS/books, Apple & Microsoft are recommending turning it off. Personally I won't be since the hit is too great on some of the workloads I have to use but hopefully the mitigations make it a challenging enough exploit to keep it far away.

Tbf Bulldozer has technically been grabbing posthumous wins in gaming against its contemporary 3570K rival ever since the newer APIs came around with Battlefield 4, the Spectre & Meltdown stuff was just salt in the wounds.
