    I was 99.99% sure to go back to AMD after 14 years, but it's more like 300% now.

    AMD have just capitalized on their greatest marketing opportunity of the year. Well done for them.

    Just give us Ryzen 3k already :D
    But yes... I'm now 100% certain I'll switch to AMD this year. I've had enough.

    I was contemplating switching back to AMD on next cpu upgrade. I think this cements it.

    As I understand it, 8th and 9th gen Intel CPUs are not affected by these MDS vulnerabilities, as they are mitigated on a hardware level.

    Nope, those are NOT mitigated on HW level, re-read research papers again.

    Go ahead, switch to AMD, when such overhyped vulnerabilities will easily be patched with microcode update, minimal performance impacts, it is good that research is being done on the matter, and i dont feel any less secure. With AMD you get lower per core performance, low efficiency interconnect, lower performance in games and productivity software. It is definitely not a reason to bash intel over this.

    Yes AMD! kick Intel when they are down.

    Intel getting just what it deserves for supressing competition and price gouging!

    Karma is a bitch!

    ZombieLoad refers to Intel's board of directors.

    PS5, new XBOX and a new smokin' Desktop!!

    All within a short time here. Just broke it to the wife I'm getting a new build in the CaseLabs Magnum STH-10 with pedestal.

    Come on water blocks for the new new from AMD.....

    Man this is so upsetting. Just bought tablets (intel based) for the kids. Wife's laptop isn't even two years old... Som'bitch may'ne!!..!!

    Facepalm. One of the worse CPU vulnerabilities ever found and you call it "overhyped". I assume you're one of those people that would defend Intel regardless of what they did.

    AMD for me next time, no doubt about it.

    You AMD fanboy's realize, this vulnerabilities have been around since 2008 or something and no one has been attacked due to it.... now there are actual patches out in software and soon micro code updates. Safer today than yesterday.

    But go ahead, make a mountain out of a ant hill and enjoy your lower performance AMD in every application.

    I hope the FXs aren't affected either.

    Except with all these issues being patched the performance of my CPU decreases every single time.

    Add them all up and it's a pretty bad dent for what i paid for.

    The projection is real.

    Most of the people you're calling "Intel" fanboys are currently running Intel hardware, sometimes in multiples, and have owned countless Intel products in the past.
