Intel vs AMD

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Recently I ordered an intel based laptop, it hasn't shipped yet. In the course of my research for which laptop, what specs, and ease of OS X install ability, I came across a couple of disturbing articles. One from an alleged nsa whistleblower saying that intel based systems are comprised and another from a supposedly former intel engineer saying his job was to build back doors into the hardware. Is there any validity to either? Should intel systems be avoided as a matter of principle? Is AMD any better in this regard? Or have they simply not had any whistleblowers? The spectre and meltdown bugs are a concern as well, but seemed a bigger problem for intel than amd. Since the fix for intel will reportedly slow those systems down by as much as 30%. I'm just not sure.

I'm not a hacker or an NSA insider, the information that I have seen so far in various good documentary sessions, unfortunately confirm this thesis.
but the whole spectacle is known for a long time. the first dokomentation I have seen so far comes from the late 80s, my opinion.
in relation to Echelon (1*) and in connection with all PC hardware exported from the United States in the other countries.


According to these research there are no very good or bad or very bad CPU manufacturers. All are rats whether Intel or AMD !!:

Therefore, viruses etc. will always remain a permanent problem and will never be fixed


ARM CPU with higher security read here: https://chiefio.wordpress.com/2017/02/03/for-deep-security-use-arm-avoid-intel-amd-processors/


In terms of the 30% slowing down the system after a security update, I have not been able to determine so far. My Intel PC is as good or just as bad as before the security update. I have a PC with i7 processor and have before and after the update to run various tools and found no serious differences.
