Re. Fix D: EPIC Fail / Itanic
On the other hand, maybe all those "useless" AMD dual core dinosaurs I have can be tested and sold, with boards at a premium as "SPECTRE/Meltdown/Multiplicity proof" with Rowhammer/ASLR proofing being designed into the BIOS/uEFI.
Interesting aside, back in the day my ancient SN-25 had this "problem" with some games failing badly until the multicore issue was patched on *every* *single* *feckin* *game* using some clever code.
Interestingly it turned out that the code introduced other problems like BF1942 crashing later on in the game due to a possible feedback loop causing a race condition (DDR2 rowhammer?!) which also got fixed.
