AMD Gets Sued Over Spectre CPU Flaw

At least four separate lawsuits have now been filed against AMD alleging violations ranging from securities fraud to breach of warranty, unfair competition, and negligence. The cases, all submitted to a US district court in San Jose, include:

The first three suits seek damages from AMD on behalf of those who bought an AMD processor that has the Spectre flaw. The last one seeks to recover cash for shareholders of AMD who bought AMD stock between between February 21, 2017 and January 11, 2018. Now the first three cases could be merged into a single case, but regardless. This is bad for AMD who joins Intel in circling their legal wagons.

You can fully expect more lawsuits to come AMD’s way. Mark my words.
