They already tested it and AMD isn't vulnerable to Meltdown.
You are worshiping a brand by ignoring its issues and unironically using the extremely fallacious argument that if it MIGHT have similar problems then it's just as bad even though there's zero proof and a much smaller chance of it having these issues since AMD doesn't cheap out on security as much as Intel does, the bias is obvious.

>> No.64180761

>>64180701
First you think that the only vulnerabilities avauilable are Meltdown and Specter.

Then you go like "oh you're ignoring the issue" despite the fact that I made it clear that I'm aware of it and I very much dislike it. There is zero proof of AMD having a similar vulnerability and guess what, there is also zero proof of AMD NOT having it. You are the one worshipping a company and telling people to buy products by said company. I'm the one choosing not to take sides and I'm definitely not going for Intel next time. Take your mouth off AMD's cock for a split second or show me that you personally help manufacture AMD processors and know exactly why it shouldn't be possible to have a vulnerability of a similar nature in the future. Or show me that you knew exactly about these two specific vulnerabilities before anyone else did, you could also do that.

However I'm assuming that Spectre isn't a problem on AMD but I'm not sure what to believe now. I ain't going to upgrade any soon because of RAM prices so I guess it doesn't really matter to me now.

How is that clear evidence? AMD wasn't affected by -two- specific vulnerabilities. You're essentially saying that therefore, they're not going to be affected by vulnerabilities. A better argument would be "they don't have this specific system built in in which such situation might occur", but you did not bring that up. Instead you just made the pretty silly assumption that survivability is the same as invincibility.

They'll basically do anything, including illegal, shady things to keep people buying Intel CPUs.

They'll sell them at a loss if the have to in order to keep AMDs market share and revenue down.

I'll just copy this from another thread about the same BS:

>So they found a problem in the TPM reference code that most vendors use, tested their exploit in an emulator, and now it's being called a PSP remote code execution vulnerability?
>They never tried to test it on actual AMD hardware, and then they assumed (while not having any AMD hardware to verify with) that the PSP has no exploit mitigation technologies. And where are they getting the remote bit from? At best that's remote from the main cpu to the PSP cpu. I can't say I'm particularly impressed by this so far, especially seeing that a fix is ready and has been apparently rolling out for the past month. If anything I'm happy about this, not worried. Security working as it should: problem found, problem reported, problem fixed. Of course I'd be happier if all PSP code was open source of course, but maybe that can still happen some day.

On my web server, it's gone from an average of 20% usage per day to 35%. That's a 70% fucking increase.

At peak times, it can't handle it and I'm having to upgrade.
I'd change to an Epyc node if I could, but none are rolled out. Instead I have to get a more powerful Xeon node than I previous had, but I'm going to switch to Epyc as soon as I reasonably can.
