ASMedia Technology, a tech company that's best known for designing high speed controllers (most recently, USB 3.1 Gen2, and AMD's X370 chipset), has posted tremendous increases in revenue and profits. The Taiwanese company distributed cash dividends per share in the order of $0.21 in late 2017, after achieving revenues of roughly $102 million, up 44.7% YoY (Year over Year).

While ASMedia is one of the implied companies in the latest AMD nightmare (the suspiciously timed and apparently interest-driven CTS flaw disclosure), AMD is keeping with ASMedia for its X470 chipset design and production. Which was to be expected - even if AMD wanted to change partners or develop the chipset in-house, AMD's Ryzen 2000 series and the accompanying motherboards' release is impending. The company is expected to continue its strong growth on continued shipment of USB 3.1 controllers, adding USB 3.2 controllers to its portfolio, and increased profits derived from the development of AMD's X470 chipset.

"latest AMD nightmare" way to put it :D. Also we demand daily CTS Labs updates till it wrecks AMD to shreds. That would be a sight to behold :toast:

Definitely too late for AMD to pull the plug on this partner with a release this close. I thought the CTS labs stuff would be debunked much quicker than this. Perhaps it is legit stuff after all; AMD still hasn't come out claiming bunk or even low risk. Still almost a week later AMD has only acknowledged the vulnerabilities and no counter statement. No sign of the rumored financial manipulation either. A week later and the stock is relatively unchanged with low volume. If it walks like a duck.

It is legit, it is also no issue.
It's no different than Intel stuff so what is the scary stuff? (ME, Not spectre meltdown).

If it's patch-able it's possible to hack it, none of the stuff is new.
You need the host OS, you need admin rights and it must be special made for the hardware.

It's not even proven by themselfes, they are pretty much saying in theory.
In theory White holes exist, in practice it's not the case as we only detect black holes.

so unless they can back up their "in theory" this remains "in theory".
In theory we can hack anything so I could say everything X company have made isn't secure which is the real issue of this reveal.

Just a storm in the teacup as Intel was a big time idiot in communication, so it let their Israeli hounds on AMD.

Lool i hope you arent serious. You do realize CTS never gave AMD any notice before publication. Normally the standard is to notify the company 60 days before publishing. Cts published it out of the blue and gave amd 24hours . Ridiculous
Intel had 60+ days for sceptre and meltdown before any of us heard about it and they still didnt have a functional patch for it at that time, so somehow you expect amd to have a fix for an unverified problem from an unknown firm within a week? This is fishy on every level and has to be taken with a huge pinch of salf

I don't disagree with you, but must add that black holes are theory as well.

Not really. Well, not in the conventional sense. We've been detecting their emmissions for long enough now we are pretty much certain they exist (black holes).
