The Mantra

I’ve been messing around with computers and stuff for awhile now, and I’ve developed the SEPHQ Mantra:

AMD, ASUS, Western Digital, Kingston, NVidia.

I don’t follow this slavishly (especially with video cards), but I’ve generally had good results by following the Mantra.

Down the pike comes this:

The condensed version is that pretty much all the Intel “i” CPUs (i3, i5, etc.) have this vulnerability. I’m unsure exactly how this is going to work with various O/S: for sure this will affect Windows, but Linux? That remains to be seen.

I’ll of course be monitoring this as it develops. I have an i3 based laptop and an i5 desktop, neither of which I use very much. Guess it’s time to dust them both off, eh?
