            Do Intel processors have anything similar to this feature in their line of CPU's? If so, what do they call their version of it and how well supported it is? This is something I would be interested in.

              Once in the Linux kernel I'm sure Michael will want to do an article on it and how to enable it on your own systems.

                  x2, we have nearly 700 cores of Opteron running our production RHEL servers. They're up for refresh this year, so eagerly awaiting the Epyc release and official RHEL support.

                    Who still wants to use AMD after that PSP fiasco?

                    They basically give a big middle finger to the Security Community.
