    Does this 10th gen processor have the same Spectre and Meltdown type vulnerabilities as earlier processors?

    "Ice Lake’s architecture, Sunny Cove, will have hardware fixes for the Spectre and Meltdown architectural flaws that caused so much consternation among hardware manufacturers and software developers over the past year. So far we’ve seen microcode fixes for many of the most affected, recent-generation chips, and some of Intel’s ninth-generation chips implemented hardware fixes for specific instances of these exploits.

    Intel has confirmed, however, that Ice Lake will go well beyond that, potentially representing the first CPU generation from Intel to mitigate major Spectre variants at the silicon level. That may also mean some of the performance-impacting stop-gap solutions protecting users against these exploits will not be present, although most think it unlikely that Ice Lake will be able to halt all the potential exploit paths..."

    Intel’s line of notebook CPUs gets more confusing with 14nm Comet Lake
    Comet Lake looks good, but it seems like a confusing digression from Ice Lake

    Is Comet Lake getting the same hardware protection against Meltdown and Spectre as Ice Lake?

    Intel is sticking 10th-gen chips into Acer, Asus, MSI, HP and Razer laptops
    But expect more Comet Lake than Ice Lake-based machines
