I guess this is what intel are now playing for some of their design, which is meant to speed up cross processing and reduce internal latency.
This could be the main reason why they had such a higher IPC than AMD for the last decade, by cutting so many corners which are how being revealed.
I don't know if they new about every vulnerability they have, or considered some of the possible attacks.
I won't the price of fixing it all, considering AMD are now gaining up on IPC and on clock speeds.
TBF I'm happy that I hadn't upgraded for such a long time.

For those that think they can hide using AMD... there is NO where to hide.
That is true.
When they made CPUs 10 years ago, they hadn't considered or knew that web browser scripts would be allowed or find a way to use some of the complicated mechanics.
With new things being allowed and designed, security is a lot of times being left behind.
I mean, a site running a script to mine on your system, who would have thought it would be possible 10 years ago when they designed the web browser security? Now it appear as a "bug".
The development of software that we use, should be just as guilty of the existence of those vulnerabilities, as they allow them to happen without considering the security of what they allow to happen.
