I hate to tell you all but there is built in back doors on ALL CPU'S, I find it funny though AMD fans have to post how great there CPU'S R! NO overclocking needed lolz! RYZEN FALL............Here you go AMD lolz! ENJOY!https://www.gamersnexus.net/news-pc/3500-hw-news-lots-of-insecure-bios-drivers-ryzen-3000-binning
Hiding under a rock I see.

including every major BIOS vendor, as well as hardware vendors like ASUS, Toshiba, NVIDIA, and Huawei. However, the widespread nature of these vulnerabilities highlights a more fundamental issue – all the vulnerable drivers we discovered have been certified by Microsoft. Since the presence of a vulnerable driver on a device can provide a user (or attacker) with improperly elevated privileges, we have engaged Microsoft to support solutions to better protect against this class of vulnerabilities, such as blacklisting known bad drivers,” says Eclypsium.
Eclypsium also notes that this issue affects all modern versions of Windows, and that there is currently “no universal mechanism to keep a Windows machine from loading one of these known bad drivers.”

OH max boost clcok Nun will do the ADVERTISED 4.75MHz lolz!
Um, I hate to break it to you, however all but one of those alleged "backdoors" REQUIRE physical access to the system to exploit. The one that doesn't is easily defeated by disabling all Remote Desktop services and features, assuming you haven't applied the patch from MS.

Remote services are meant to be used behind a firewall in an intranet, not really for a WLAN/internet.

Ive been disabling remote since WXP had it

10 cores 135W ?
we knew the 9900k is 95W and eats > 170W when overclocking
so this 10 core will eat 240W ?
Properly, but so what, that's only if you load up all the core's doing OCed video encoding or so, my 9700K@5GHz dose do that to, but if i am gaming my whole system 'only' uses 360W including a slight OCed 1080Ti.

The only important Nr is performance per Watt, and that ratio is still good with a Intel CPU, luckely AMD is doing a whole lot better in that department now to, whit the 3000 series.

I take it a step further by deleting all three associated services instead of just disabling them, but that's just me.

Open a CLI in admin and type in
SC delete ServiceNameHere
You should have already disabled the services you wish to delete.

Word of caution! Careful what you delete as restoring deleted services can be very difficult and in certain cases requires a fresh install of the OS.

No no i know how to disable services via services.msc, before i do that though i uncheck it in gui means then use services.msc

I guess in dos it's easier to remove services than go through regedit.

I use cmd to force defrag my velociraptor.

At this moment in time Intel really lost the plot. Being loyal Blue customer for years I raise my hand and say it loud: Intel has nothing worth investing. Whatever segment you pick they are soundly beaten by AMD or ARM. Unless radical new architecture is released in 2020 AMD can easily dominate whole market by end of next year.

This kind of stunt with yet another new socket for clearly inferior silicone vs closest competitor is obvious example of losing capacity to think logically. :kookoo: Even cliche, shooting in the foot, backside and so on don't cut it anymore. There is nothing left to shoot. Now AMD has at least 2 years to milk the market.

What fanboying? Last time I had AMD-based PC was in 2003 with Athlon XP 1700 or something like that.

Let me specifically quote the part that made me post my comment:
new, LGA 1200 package

Only a mentally deficient person would be happy with Intel doing this crap over and over again.

What's wrong with progress? I mean yeah it would great if Intel stuck with a socket for more than 2 generations of CPU's, but you don't own or run the company.

I hate to tell you all but there is built in back doors on ALL CPU'S, I find it funny though AMD fans have to post how great there CPU'S R!
If you're worried about backdoors, then there are bigger things to worry about. Windows had have one since the mid 90s, and EFI have a remote patching ability which can be used to add one.

I wouldn't worry about about AMD's BIOS flashing bug, or the various CPU bugs like Spectre, Meltdown and all their siblings. These are all bugs which require you to have direct access or even administrative privileges already (for the BIOS flash). Spectre, Meltdown etc. is basically irrelevant for end users, they require someone to execute their code on your CPU, find something useful, and then somehow extract that data out of your computer. So it basically needs at least one or two other vulnerabilities to even be theoretically feasible. Don't get me wrong; every bug should be addressed, but that doesn't mean it's a big deal for end users. Bugs like this is also why in IT all good security practices are done by doing security in layers, since bugs in applications/services/libraries, drivers, operating systems, BIOS/EFI or hardware level, or of course user error are bound to happen sooner or later.

These bugs are primarily a concern for cloud hosting providers, where any random virtual machine may execute the next code on the same CPU. In theory people could extract tiny fragments of memory, and by luck find something useful. But in practice, dumping a hypervisor's 100s of GB of memory at up to a few kB/s, finding and dumping the all-important (and constantly changing) page table of the VM and then assembling continuous application memory page by page, let's just say that the memory you're dumping will change at a much higher rate than your dumping it.

TLDR; You shouldn't care about these bugs. But Intel and AMD should learn from it.

Your arguments are like from an alternative universe or something. Globally, not just here.
