    At Intel's Security Day event on Tuesday, the company laid down its present and future vision for security-focused features in its hardware.

    Intel's Anil Rao and Scott Woodgate opened their presentation with a present-and-future discussion of Intel's SGX (Security Guard Extensions), but their coverage of the company's plans to bring Full Memory Encryption to future Intel CPUs was more interesting.

    Well, that's one way to combat those cache related "security flaws".

    I wonder if Intel will ever catch up to AMD, and if so, when, at this point it looks like AMD is set to increase their lead.

    You realize it's not the first time AMD had an advantage over Intel during the last 40 years? It's not like AMD is using magic which Intel will never manage to figure out. It wasn't that far ago when Intel was earning in a week as much as AMD was in a year. (or something like that, it's late and I am tired).
    Intel will be fine. Intel is fine.

    Lol, I remember friend.

    Heck back in the day I had one of the AMD Thunderbird processors that utilized the Slot A type of CPU socket, and I do know how AMD came to be, few people know that it kind of was formed by a bunch of former employees of Intel that broke off from the main Intel company and formed their own company.

    I just wish Acorn was still around. :D
