But then again who will buy the expensive Intel with all their security loophole? lol.
That's right, lower latency and large cache. I am more concerned about how they are going to cool those things with hot spots throughout the stack due to heat being trapped.
Probably with improved TIM and awesome tradition of stock coolers 🙂

Article Number
PA-240
We are aware of the report of a new security exploit called SPOILER which can gain access to partial address information during load operations. We believe that our products are not susceptible to this issue because of our unique processor architecture. The SPOILER exploit can gain access to partial address information above address bit 11 during load operations. We believe that our products are not susceptible to this issue because AMD processors do not use partial address matches above address bit 11 when resolving load conflicts.

So much for the "Why didn't they test Ryzen CPUs?".

Well it is an expected response considering they weren't tested.
Until someone actually test ryzen CPUs, you will need to take their word for it.

Do you think DDR will ever be rowhammer proof again like it used to be in the old days? That would seem to fix everything.
