    Transparent and timely. Right.
    Grab that. Get that. Check it out. Bring that here. Grab anything useful. Take anything good.

    Very much a case of closing the stable door after the horse has bolted.

    That Intel only seem concerned with the security of customers who've bought their product in the last 5 years doesn't exactly shout that "security is an ongoing priority"

    They had to find a way for me to get rid of my perfectly adequate 2600k. I'm going Ryzen, at least this time I get to pick who "makes love" to me.

    Security is an ongoing priority for a company whom is so large it literally told the EU High Courts to go do one? Ha, it's an afterthough, no matter what he says

    Re: Intel makes 'Security-First Pledge'

    Skylake isn't that old, on some platforms. Up until ~6 months ago the big socket (workstations etc) was on broadwell, and those customers are probably the ones most likely to notice any slowdown

    I also like the way they omitted benchmarks for anything older than 2-3 years, when they're saying they're going back for 5 years. Which likely leaves quite a few "old" processor architectures out of that mix. If Intel were serious about security they would also be going back further than that, I guess the message I've taken away from this is "we only care about customers who have upgraded in the last 5 years, the rest of you we don't care about, not even remotely".

    I'm not getting rid of mine. However when I do choose to upgrade Intel can forget it.

    Re: Intel makes 'Security-First Pledge'

    And those reportedly suffering most, are the very ones Intel choose NOT to show benchmarks for.
    Pre-Skylake.
    As usual, carefully crafted PR rubbish.

    Re: Intel makes 'Security-First Pledge'

    The PR says "Our customers' security is an ongoing priority, not a one-time event".

    Such a priority that security has been just a marketing feature, a tick-box paid-certificate-wielding exercise cynically exploited to sell more:
