WHAT THE FUUUUUCK

What are we supposed to do now? Buy AMD?
>>
>>64119665
You were better off doing that for a while actually. Step out of your Stockholm syndrome.
>>
Yes. Or get a ARM CPU and build a ARM desktop, but I don't know if there are NVIDIA/AMD (new gen cards) drivers for ARM or not.
>>
>>64119698
Just connect a display/keyboard to a reasonable powerful tablet and you're done.
>>
>>64119665
Relax, I don't think anyone has really noticed yet.
>>
>>64119744
noticed what?
>>
Haven't been on /g/ for a while. What happened?
>>
>>64119804
major security vuln baked into intel cpus from the last ~10 years, only fix slows performance pretty significantly in some cases, affects all OS's
>>
>>64119804
Intel has been cucked by x86 bug. 5-30% performance penalty once it gets fixed
>>

What is the attack vector?
Do I need to install or run malware to get infected?
>>
>>64119879
programs can access kernel memory any program can be attack vector. from gizmodo article says it could potentially even extend to javascript
>>
>>64119879
the attack vector is userspace
even javascript might be enough
>>
dont connect to the internet ever again
PROBLEM SOLVED

intel meme BTFO'd by a sandboxed hipster shit lang

How do I uninstall the Javascript plugin???
>>
How much money is this going to cost companies?
>>
>>64120058
hundreds of billions
think of banks
think of the military
think of every single fucking idiot that decided to go Intel
>>
2018: year of the AMD desktop
>>
>tfw switched to ryzen last year from intel
>>
Anything that runs in memory is vulnerable and the attack can be from a .mp4 or a .jpeg or js or a .exe.
>>
>>64120167
feels like early years of the internet again
this feels wicked good
we're back in the wild west nao

>>64119891
not "might", the proof of concept was javascript
>>
is there anything suboptimal about running a ryzen with a 1070?
>>
Felt like going on /g/.
Found out thetes major attack vector in PCs.

Lucky I am!

O was about to buy a PC.
>>
>>64120262
nope
good enough for games even on linux
>>
Welp, guess it's time to switch to POWER9.
>>
>>64120206
blueborne, krack, rowhammer, ransomeware, doubleganger, wanacry, heartbleed, trojans via AV, efi/bios injections
yup we truely are back in the 90s wild west ;)

In a stagnating world the ever evolving Linux will adapt and rise to the top.

>>64120406
you can switch it off, you know
>>
>>64120415
Switching it "off" still penalizes AMD with a drop in performance. There's simply no excuse for that nonsense.

Silly mactoddler tripfag, your crapintosh is no better off.
>>
>>64120058
Well think about the companies like amazon that have billions in infrastructure that is 30% worse now. That is huge.
>>
Actual adult here. I'll tell you kids what to do.

1. Wait for official patch and disclosures. Do *not* trust /g/ when it comes to computer security information, most people here are clueless or are brand fanboys.
2. Wait for benchmarks of the performance hit in real-world use scenarios. And do your own testing too.
3. Evaluate then if it's worth it to buy a new CPU.

unless you have an Nvidia GPU
top zozzle
>>
>>64120912
oh? how does this relate to nvidia?
>>
>>64120942
did you forget how CPU bound Nvidia GPUs are compared to AMD's no driver shit?
>>
>>64120953
i don't really follow graphics cards
>>
>>64120873
Not making "a lot" is still making some. I'm sure we'll see a performance hit, maybe not in all games, but in a portion of them. Certainly not 30% or even close, but that remains to be seen.
The question is, is that going to be enough to close the gap between Ryzen and the 8th gen Intel shit? Because if it is, Intel is going to be in pretty bad shape even in gaming.
If you take into account that this shit just completely obliterated them in server/workstation workloads, if they also get fucked in gaming, they're in for a rough bit.
>>
>>64121009
yea, all programs make at least some syscalls
things like load times will likely be slower
