PSA: Intel will release a redesigned CPU silicon this year--Confirmed by Intel's investors meeting-Wait or look out for a deal on Intel CPUs

Enjoy,

This PSA is to inform you guys the confirmation of added silicon on Intel's CPUs this year. I believe the current crop of CPU's will be marked down. I recommend you all to wait for better silicon architectures if you think security is important to you, or wait for a best possible deal on current Intel CPUs.

In addition, I also think AMD and ARM-based chips will follow the same path if Intel solution works.

Confirmed source by PCWorld:
https://www.pcworld.com/article/3...swers.html

"..Intel chief executive Brian Krzanich told investors Thursday afternoon that the company plans to release silicon with built-in mitigations to the Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabiities later this year, a statement that raises more questions than it answers..."

Intel's own statement on the flawed patch:
https://newsroom.intel.com/news/r...-partners/

Therefore, a software patch won't be a permanent solution for all future CPU's; thus, a redesigned chip is inevitable.

silicone caulk seals the hackers out of the CPU, guys. It's not that complicated.

Good question!! I do think it is possible; however, in most cases, lawyers will need more solid evidence to claim these vuln's have caused major security breaches (and harms, griefs, etc..), or it is just not worth to sue Intel and the rest of the CPU industry.

Can't believe it took pcworld a month to pick this up. It's been on tech forums for over a month, much longer if you count the dark web.

The only computers immune to this is the Apple G3 and early G4-7400 series of RISC processors. They predate 1999 with very little ram. Even the G5,6,7+ are affected.

All flawed cpus since 2004? I doubt. If everyone joins a class action intel won't exist anymore? Like takata. Or will intel raise prices to make up for the loss? I don't know. Don't like the idea of buying now and then having it patched/fixed at software level but then get 30% performance drop.
I don't even know if home users need to worry about it. I've never been hacked at home or any of the businesses i worked at.

There weren't any financial repercussions from Y2K on the Computer industry so you are probably right.

I think the chip makers are in the pockets of the Alphabet Agencies and the hack was just for their needs but it got discovered by others....

You probably aren't surfing porn or working against TPTB which has kept you safe .

Knock on wood and stay vigilant.
