There are two different attacks/bugs going around that are confusing everyone.

Meltdown is the bug that seemingly only affects Intel CPUs due to how they perform Out-of-Order execution. AMD with their neural net branch prediction (and lack of good branch prediction for older processor) is very likely unaffected.

Spectre on the other hand has been verified to affect any processor that are capable of keeping many instructions in flight. This is basically every processor that exists including AMD and ARM. It is, however, much harder to exploit due to requiring working knowledge of another, seperate vulnerable software currently running on a target system. Conversely it is also much harder to defend against and is best done on a case-by-case basis.

There's actually 3 according to google.
Stage 1 is spectre lite - affects everyone. Doesn't really do much. Easily fixed.

Stage 2 is spectre - intel only.

Meltdown - intel only. Performance drops when fixed.

It's like cancer and aids. There's benign and malignant tumors, and then there's aids which you have no escape from after getting.

Welp, we're all fucked. Has there ever been a vulnerability of this magnitude before?

Yes, illiteracy.

What's the Intel equivalent of Amanda? A psychopathic whore that gives you AIDS, drugs you and sells your kidneys?
