    All Intel CPUs in last 10 yrs have critical bug to show protected kernel memory areas

    Assuming consumers don't use system calls then ya, ~0%

    Vega Rumors

    Have to say I like the open back design of the XFX custom more.

    So what happens to the laptop market if... (intel+amd chip related)

    I believe you're discussing something else altogether. Please read https://www.anandtech.com/show/12003/intel-to-create-new-8th-generation-cpus-with-amd-radeon-graphics-with-hbm2-using-emib

    MINIX: The Most Popular OS in the World, Thanks to Intel

    I'll look for that video, but I'm dubious that the arm core doesn't run some OS.

    MINIX: The Most Popular OS in the World, Thanks to Intel

    That arm core is undoubtedly running some software. AMD isn't just gonna stick an extra core into their chip and not have it do anything.

    So what happens to the laptop market if... (intel+amd chip related)

    So what happens to the laptop market if intel pairs an amd chip to ALL high end laptop parts? The way I see it intel is taking a jab at nvidia with this amd deal and if they really want it to sting then why not pair an amd chip to the entire high end line? A few things could happen 1. Gaming...

    Intel to use integrated AMD graphics in thier chips

    Current gen 15 inch macbook pros have a 45 watt intel chip and a polaris chip. This seems like a size reduction on the pair at least and maybe some power savings to boot. I'm curious if there will be a lower wattage version made as well.

    From ATI to AMD back to ATI? A Journey in Futility @ [H]

    Intel does on package dram so.... memory access might be there. On CUs you've got a point, but even a 7850k with a better memory system is at least interesting and with updated cores it might even be compelling.

    Navi Rumors

    If it launches in 2018 I find it really hard to believe that it won't have HBM2. We haven't even gotten a rumor of a new memory standard. Not that that's a bad thing.

    From ATI to AMD back to ATI? A Journey in Futility @ [H]

    AMD wouldn't kill raven's ridge, but they would kill a good deal of laptops with geforces. Intel still commands the high end market, and a quad core intel chip with mid range vega sounds like a discrete gpu killer to me.

    Linux HTPC Video card question...

    Anything pre-maxwell from nvidia or pre-vega gcn on amd should work with open drivers. Not sure what chip the 710 has in it, but if it's kepler that might be the card to get. AMD wise it looks like the r7 240 is the cheapest thing, but it's 3x the price of the 710 so.... ya.

    Strange Ryzen behavior with Nvidia vs Amd

    According to this nvidia drivers rely on the cpu for more than amd graphics drivers do. It's very possible that with more cores nvidia just issues out more worker threads.
