Re: Intel "shouldn't be selling CPUs?"
Do you even understand speculative execution,
Better that you do, or perhaps you just have a problem with English? If a branch is unconditional (as you wrote) there is no speculation involved, since there's only one option the branch can take.
I'm betting on clueless blabbing. Go back to writing Excel macros.
Maybe you should get some sleep, or go back to a forum where your arrogant know-all attitide is likely to be better tolerated.
