Never go full Intel. If you don't know this reference you need to watch Tropic Thunder.

Next we'll hear that Intel Lan chips are also as infected as everything else they've ever produced. If that happens then Realtek will turn out to be the better product after all and Intel can just die as far as I care.

correct, thus why they're trying to pawn it off as a lenovo issue (until you actually read the article)

oy vey... but but but but, can we at least agree intel is still the better sata port over its competition?

LOL, be careful, even that might be compromised.

LOL... that reminds me. I just broke it to the new service desk bro that his old X79 only has 2x intel 6gbps ports.

he raged, n went on a google rant trying to prove me wrong.

sadly, I was correct.

I feel like Intel owns up to its problems. AMD tries to hide them. This is probably a bit bias after reading about security issues they fixed in a driver update without any mention of them.

How can AMD hide vulnerabilities they don't have?

apples n oranges

there's a reason why the media blasted AMD for quietly issuing those 4 updates.

turns out everyone, their mother, n their great grandmother had to push mandatory security updates post death of win7.

Apple are using their own custom firmware.
Lenovio seems to be using intel's firmware.
So this could be part of the reason why you don't see it affect apple.
