    AMD officially admitted today that its processors are not vulnerable to the Meltdown bug, but are affected by both variants of the Spectre flaw.

    In addition, because of repeated questions regarding the status of its GPU products, Mark Papermaster, AMD Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, clarified that AMD Radeon GPU architectures do not use speculative execution and thus are not susceptible to either the Meltdown or Spectre flaws.
