Re: Downgrade attack?
Not so much Brand Lemmings as you put it as Intel is just as bad but what I downvoted you for was your almist instant dismissal of AMD Patches before they have been released. To many that sounds like Trolling.
Yes you have a bone to pick with AMD. I'm sure that you aren't alone in that but others might be willing to give AMD the benefit of the doubt until the quality of their patches can be reviewed.
Intel is not squeaky clean wrt patches as we all know.
I may never buy an X86 powered device or cpu ever again. Most of my computing needs these days can be met by a Raspberry Pi 3. YMMV.
