While not good still not as serious as Intel's issues.  Also Ryzen 3 is not listed as effected which raises some questions.  AMD is still way behind Intel in known CPU security flaws.  Good.

I am not surprised.  These modern CPUs are so complex.  No CPU is 100% safe.  It is now to the point the best one can do is pick a chip that has fewer issues instead of no issues.  That is still clearly AMD for x86.

ARM has many flaws too.  We shall see what kind of microcode and OS patches may be performed.  To date AMD's patches and less security issues don't slow down their chips nearly as much as Intel.
