Oy. All this shite with intel goes down right after I bought my first intel machine in 15 years. Was purely AMD before this. Time to find out if my CPU is affected.

If your Intel is produced in the past decade, chances are it's affected.

In the past two decades you mean.

Issue was introduced in 1995

The newest intel CPU currently confirmed to be unaffected is the original pentium.

Pentium Pro onwards is potentially vulnerable.

Is this why John Titor needed the IBM 5100?

I have 3 pentium 1s in my garage. $500 each. Good deal, good deal....

I was posting elsewhere betting it was the 'advanced features of the Pentium Pro' onward that were fucked up.. I hate it when I'm right. although it makes my $50 purchase of a 386 looking all the smarter!

If your CPU was manufactured between 1995 and now it's basically affected...

It’s not yet clear if AMD processors are quite as vulnerable.

I've been a brand whore for AMD since I bought my first video card. Back then I used to tell people that I am "ATI till I die"

That's a gay catchphrase, but supporting AMD is cool.

Did you study AMD cpu architecture, made security analysis and tests, did the same with Intel products before you made you decision? If no then it’s just luck. That said, being blindly loyal to any corporation, no matter their track record is just making another risky bet. One must be prudent and re-evaluate where particular brand stands at the moment, what competitors are offering etc.
