Intel AMD Soars After Rival Intel Reveals CPU flaw

Interesting news on the competition front.


Advanced Micro Devices Inc. surged in early trading after a report that Intel Corp., its only remaining rival in the market for personal computer processors, has a flaw in its products that makes commonly used operating systems vulnerable to hackers.

According to technology website The Register, Intel has a bug that lets some software gain access to parts of a computer’s memory that are set aside to protect things like passwords. All computers with Intel chips from the past 10 years appear to be affected, the report said, and patches to Microsoft Corp.’s Windows and Apple Inc.’s OS X operating systems will be required. The security updates may slow down older machinery by as much as 30 percent, according to the report.

Not sure a $1.50 per share bump qualifies as "soaring" but OK.

True and as the story progresses it looks like it’s a wider issue and has multiple impacts on different chips.

What are the bugs?
There are two separate security flaws, known as Meltdown and Spectre.
Meltdown affects laptops, desktop computers and internet servers with Intel chips.
Spectre potentially has a wider reach. It affects chips in smartphones, tablets and computers powered by Intel, ARM and AMD.
