Remote ‘kill switch’ added to Intel’s Sandy Bridge
A very interesting read:
Intel wants to include a 'remote kill switch' with the up and coming Sandy Bridge CPU's.
If this is the case then I might be looking at AMD more closely. 😕
I read that but still don't understand how you looking closely at AMD came out if it..
Then you didn't read it.
it works off of a 3G network. Easily hackable.
Oh I thought you meant AMD GPUs I was like wut.
Well then don't get Sandy Bridge. 🙂 Stick with your i7.
Had me bewildered there, but yeah, Stick with i7<3
This is similar to when they tried to put a software traceble serial number on the CPU's years ago, it didnt go far.
That will stop me from going Sandy Bridge for sure. 😡
Honestly, I think the feedback will be so negative that Intel will eventually abandon it.
