Yes if only I had a ryzen laptop. I hope intel gets its shit together. I havent looked into the details of the security flaw but the performance impact alone I feel might actually be noticeable. TO my knowledge however is that the attacks are simply informational aka read only attacks…
The real question is with such a huge bug affecting so much why are we just now discovering it?
I guess it brings to light the advantages of opening the architecture up a bit. I think once I watched a video discussion between lunduke and of course the rather more infamous RMS about how we continue to build and build architecture ontop of previous architecture whos bugs havent fully been discovered yet and that something like this might eventually occur. Its kind of funny to see that this all came into alignment.
I have already looked into patching my systems as of January 3rd
