  2. AMD Ryzen 9 3900x w/ MSI X570 GODLIKE Motherboard, 64GB RAM

  3. Go out & purchase another power supply, build BOTH systems & split the RAM (32GB between both rigs)

    That's more than a year old and from a "security company" that didn't exist prior to supposedly finding said "vulnerabilities" and hasn't been heard from since.

    Also, those "vulnerabilities" required making the system insecure to begin with. If you intentionally make the system vulnerable to attack, of course vulnerabilities will appear....lol It was nothing but an attempt to tank AMD's stock, which was proven by the fact that the media was notified before anyone else....particularly, a "media site" that is known for intentionally trying to tank stock prices of tech companies. Also, the "founders" of the supposed "security company" have no background in security, hardware or software. They do, however, have a military background and specialized in financial warfare....more specifically, exactly what they failed to do to AMD. Tank market prices. The entire thing was a financial hit that failed.

    The CTS labs "findings" were debunked aaaaages ago - the security "flaws" were only possible if you give the exploit payloads elevated privileges (i.e. admin privileges). Please don't post this nonsense stuff.

    The CTS Labs debacle was covered in detail, both on guru3D and elsewhere (you'd have to have been living under a rock to not know about it). It was widely acknowledged as an attempt to tank the stock and was not a genuine risk. You are either wildly misinformed or trolling.

    If you want to site security concerns, Intel has a laundry list of security flaws....and more seem to be found at quite regular intervals. If security is a priority, Intel would be the wrong option. Nearly every "vulnerability" announced for AMD requires direct access to the system, as well as elevated privileges or security measures being disabled.

    So, either you're a troll, a fanboy or a shill..... Either way, you're losing what credibility you had.

    I know my current rig is fine but I like building new PCs. LOL. I have an itch that I love to scratch. I was an real-estate attorney for 13 years and saved all my money so money isn't an issue. I just like new technology.

    I do have a 2019 LG Oled 65-inch and a Dolby Atmos surround sound system (Pioneer Elite 11.2 receiver and Definitive Technology speaker towers and satellites). I don't have a shield though.
