    Re: Intel makes 'Security-First Pledge'

    It seems everybody is jumping amd train now,but everyone omitted that amd is affected as well by spectre and there will be slowdowns to amd too. From what i could gather info the Meltdown bug did not had an major impact in performance but spectre patch (which amd suffer from it as well) is the most performance impacting update.

    You know that €1 billion fine that was handed to them back in 2009 and Intel turned round and appealed (which is in their right to do so). However, Intel doesn't have a god damn leg to stand on because of their aggressive rebating has been proven to only be given as long as AMD products weren't also sold.

    The reason for appeal was ridiculous and now 8 years on, the case is no further to being slapped on Intel. The EU HC need to grow some Cojones and stop letting Intel waffle iron.

    But it's all legal process, what seemed to be an ironclad case with large swathes of evidence was just let go with an appeal.

    Well there's only 2 trains at the station mate so it's no surprise people are getting on the least buggered of the 2.
    Grab that. Get that. Check it out. Bring that here. Grab anything useful. Take anything good.

    I couldn't have put it better ^

    I'd already decided to go AMD - before any of this current crap. But I admit I was wavering, but the cost side of it swung it. Now I'm certain. Even if AMD got more expensive I don't think I'd go intel.

    Wrong way around. Meltdown, the Intel only one, is the one with the potentially big impact. If you are just playing games then you probably won't be able to feel any difference though, just patch and carry on as normal.
