AMD may be affected in the sense that so far they don't seem to be making the fix specific to Intel processors. That would make the AMD processors face the same performance hit as the Intels, even though they aren't guilty.

It would be naive to believe that Intel is not applying pressure to insure that the fix is brand neutral.

There are two different security issues here: Meltdown and Spectre

Meltdown is very likely Intel only but Spectre seems to be an industry-wide thing.
