"AMD statements are beyond silly."

Are they? We appear to have proof-of-concept demos that work on Intel. If those don't work on AMD then the onus is on you (or, more likely, Intel) to demonstrate that it can be done. New information is coming to light at quite a rate and such demos may already exist or may exist by the time you read this reply, but it is not obvious to me that all OoO processors are necessarily vulnerable or are vulnerable in ways that cannot be patched in software, so "beyond silly" seems rather harsh.
