What sort of features ๐Ÿค”

Ones that are built into the CPU's hardware but you have to pay extra to unlock like a DLC for your CPU. That's not a joke, Intel's new Xeons are like that.

Great, now we have to pirate processor DLC.

And that's when you remember why you have been an average AMD enjoyer.

Yeah its crazy. And according to Wendell at Level1Techs its actually a huge benefit but yeah, especially at a datacenter scale I can't see anyone buying chips with dlc. Especially with Epyc currently spanking everyone's butt right now.

That seems like a big security risk.
