Intel top brass smacked with sueball for keeping schtum about chip flaws


Re: Ouch

The CEO's stock sell off only looks bad if you equate Meltdown to the stock sales.

He was probably selling off stock because of the general state of Intel's product lifecycle (i.e. desperately in need of a volume 10nm product that has been pushed out around 18-24 months already) and is rumoured to still have serious issues. Add in competition from AMD and struggling to keep up with Moores law and Meltdown is just the latest problem in 2017.
