Intel must be in trouble if they gave one of their processors an awesome name like Whiskey Lake. That's the kind of thing you do when you are behind like Piledriver.

"Intel offers its own Jefferson Peak 2 AC-9560 CNVi module as the other half of the integrated solution, but the company also supports third-party solutions. This speedy connection, which debuted with the Gemini Lake processors, provides more bandwidth than a wired connection with up to 1,733 Mbps, but it requires a router that supports the feature."

But because, unlike with ethernet, the spectrum is shared by every single device on your network and even those on other people's networks, you won't actually be seeing gigabit speeds. Gigabit ethernet is still faster, even though 160MHz WiFi-AC technically has more bandwidth under the best of conditions.

"Foreshadow" inside, with the mitigations that only reduce but can't eliminate the risk?

Intel, all system companies and retail stores selling the “known” faulty products with the “known” INTENDED flaws (of not following the specs) inside the products should be sued for the crime of the fraud in criminal courts, shouldn’t they?

Sue the system companies to have them at least put the warning sticker "This product has known security risks with Intel CPU inside." on the products using the Intel CPUs that have the issues!

We actually just learned that Whiskey Lake does have some mitigations built into the hardware. learn more here --
