Arghh, We are doomed by Intel, Thank you so MUCH !

By Linux kernel group with Google, Vulnerability open for modern high performanced CPU (incl. AP, ARM Cortex architecture) that using pipe-line and fast matching caching systems of designed to using multiple calculating unit almost since over 15 years ago.

There’s two kinds of vulnerability, MELTDOWN and SPECTRE. These problems belong to hardware design fault, and may not bypass or protected by software level – so we are doomed, anyway.

Most of Intel CPU ( from Pentium multi-core designed thru Core2Duo to modern all Intel products of x86 architecture ) has leaking secured kernel memory to un-trusted user instructions to read them out easily. Also most of ARM cortex-A architecture same to vulnerabled – yes, our all smartphones since iPhone3Gs and all of Androids.

It means, your secured password should be read by any hacker when you been attacked without any protecting solutions, specially old aged Windows or Linux even Mac OS.

Intel guiding now to update system firmware ( BIOS, EFI, Intel ME ) to protect our computers, but it only depends on mainboard or hand held device manufacturer’s support !

My main desktop CPU is Intel’s i5-3570, 3rd generation of Core-I series. Its mainboard was discontinued to support in many years ago, and no way to support by manufacturer – damn Gigabyte.

It may same also for most of people as like me, long time users without any upgrade – why need upgrade for latest? It is enough now for enjoying games with ATi Rx460 4GB, it is even faster than I expected.

Among this opening of hell-gate, there’s a winner – AMD.

AMD win this game for much less vulnerability, and my next desktop will be AMD again. You won the game, AMD ! And Goodbye UNGRATEFUL INTEL ! You such a mad for money moron!

Experience of Intel HD 630 damn driver.

I guess some people may experienced badness of Intel something – as like old models from Intel graphics as known thousnad numbered models – HD 2000 or 3000 whatever, when specially upgraded to Windows 10 from older.

My new office desktop presented to me a bad experience about mouse cursor doesn’t applying anti-aliased shape, and also without shadow in 2017 !

I had to find solve this Paleolithic lacks come in modern life, searched in Godgle, and finally found a word – “INSTALL NEW DRIVER”.

Yes, it was may a SMALL problem of Intel as like before, alwasy like that. Now I can see smoothen customized mouse cursor after new driver installed ( build 4678 ).

If you are looking bad shaped mouse cursor and if it belong to your internal video adaptor – yes, you may saved money to buy external graphic deivce as like AMD R460 or nVidia 1060 whatever – check for new video device driver asap, but you don’t sens what is wrong, also may nor required check update from big blue bad brother who named Intel.
