Yes, probably should have said millions. Does not include the millions this could cost cloud providers when they lose performance on current systems. Interesting that Intel engineers stated they were concerned about disabling this Kernel code for AMD even though they do not have the flaw in their chips.

I think they knew about this vulnerability when they made this design choice and know they dont have anywhere near the performance margin over AMD when the flag for this is disabled in the Kernel for AMD products. Add that to the price discount of buying AMD and I would think Intel is seriously concerned on where this might lead.
