Damn it, before I finally bought an Intel I had nothing but trouble with AMD and Radeon video cards 7 years ago, I have had the same PC since 2012 with little problems running an Intel it, oh well. Edit, was just thinking how many different architecture of chips this could effect and if those chips were used in vehicals , now that cars,trucks,busses,planes are Mobile hotspots they could be effected and might not get updates.

Every Intel board since the Pentium has the potential of being infected (including the Pentium Pro).

It starts with the out of order execution on the Pentium Pro. Basically it's that pinnacle point where Intel destroyed the RISC market. IBM is the sole survivor because of their captive mainframe audience. It took SUN too long to figure out that chipzilla killed RISC in 1995.

Too bad there is a fundamental flaw that has been there for nearly 23 years now. How is that for an industry fuck up?

What about chips affected by Spectre?

Edit: Yes, I'm just throwing this out there.

What was the issue with Radeon cards?

shitty drivers, rendering artifacts in lots of games, crashes due to overheating at times due to driver issues, and not throttling back the card in the warmer months. I will still probably stick with amd however. I have had too many issues with nvidea and poor QA and them shipping defective chips to 3rd party manufacturers and then not standing behind them so they don't want to fix blatant known issues that many people are having under warranty.
