And yes, clearly they made it on purpose tied to the one thing that actually boosts CPU performance for the last 8 or so years so that if you try to fix it, you'll be stuck on significantly lower performance than what you paid for as a tax for not allowing them to spy on you.
Seriously mate, your PC has a ridiculous amount of other easily exploitable holes that could be intentional, but this one is not one of them.
Anonymous, 05 May 2018Thats why better wait maybe in 5 years for new generations of CPU's with fixed hardware flaws... moreforget it. these bugs are intentional to spy on everyone in the world.
they will fix some and add new ones until some one finds out about them ... and so on

and USA put these bugs in the design to spy on everyone.
it is time people outside USA make their own CPU designs and leave the US technology forever.
Thats why better wait maybe in 5 years for new generations of CPU's with fixed hardware flaws or exploit, by the least AMD have less exploit to that extent and Intel is doing its best to destroy AMD with fake news of it having more exploit than theirs lul....
Definitely getting AMD when my 6th gen Set gets old and clumsy.

Let's just sum up the fact that all are equally flawed, because in the end they all are using ARM cores
Anonymous, 05 May 2018I think Helio and MediaTek are stronger and safer.I don't think so, it should be on the same level as other chipset manufacturers. Every chipset is using ARM cores, the older cores are flawed as compared to the newer ones because they don't have those early flaws patched. And also, u do realize that Helio is MEDIATEK's name for their chipsets right? Lmfao
Shanti Dope, 05 May 2018Great news for the S9 and S9+ Exynos users, with their Mongoose M3 cores.They are still ARM cores.

AnonD-244086, 04 May 2018That's why I sold my laptopAnd how does that help you exactly? Your phone is just as compromised. The only devices that are not affected are phones like Note 3, which had a custom qualcomm CPU. There are other devices obviously, but all current consumer CPU models are affected.
Looks like our brains are safest to use (or are they)? From my point of view this looks like consumer are now forced to buy new devices just for the sake of safety...
Geric.770, 04 May 2018How's Exynos, Apple chips, and Snapdragon SoCs status now about this threat?Everything that's not In-Order CPU (A7,A53,A35,A55) is compromised.
Anonymous, 04 May 2018MediaTek and Kirin are better and safer.MediaTek doesn't even provide correct patches, with a lot of flaws appearing as ''patched'' when they're not. And since MT SoCs are vulnerable to original Spectre and Spectre-NG, heh... So much for being safer
Anonymous, 04 May 2018MediaTek and Kirin are better and safer.What are you smoking?
First off. Kirin and Mediatek's Chipsets are DIRECTLY based on uncostumed versions of Cortex cores, which are DIRECTLY Based on ARM architectures.
Exynos is not safe either, most of the chipsets, alike MT and Kirin are using direct Cortex cores. The flagships are safer though. As only 4 of the 8 are direct Cortex.
The question is Qualcomm's. Do the minimal tweaks they do are enough to save them from Spectre NG?
I personally don't think so.
