It's not just Intel facing a legal firestorm over its handling of the Spectre and Meltdown CPU design flaws – AMD is also staring at a growing stack of class-action complaints related to the chip vulnerabilities.
At least four separate lawsuits have now been filed against the California-based processor slinger, 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:
- Nathan Barnes and Jonathan Caskey vs AMD, Case 5:18-cv-00883-BLF
- Brian Speck vs AMD, Case 5:18-cv-00744-HRL
- Diana Hauck vs AMD, Case 5:18-cv-00447-NC
- Doyun Kim vs AMD, Case 5:18-cv-00321-EJD
