Both Intel and nshittya have a history of being outright dirty companies. Much more-so than AMD/ATI. Is it too much to hope we actually have a decent choice? At least AMD hinted that they can disable their "management engine" without nuking the boot process. I'd really like it if they did set it to disabled by default.

Intel won't admit that because it would mean official disclosure of the HAP bit the US government requires exist so they can bypass ME for government computers.

I agree, AMD has the better business practices. They have the worse products, though, and no amount of wishful thinking or lying about their performance will make people forget that.

After this patch thing, I want to see benchmarks for games redone. So far I've seen one and they only had an AMD GPU and said nothing changed. There really needs to be good testing done after an update like that for kernel changes.

I fully suspect nshittya was using this in some way. AMD spent a lot of effort on their latest release where they just went for brute force clock frequencies to try and match nshittya. Considering AMD has a very different philosophy this might be why. I want to see actual results to be sure though.
