Confirmed : AMD K10 And K8 Processors Also Vulnerable To Spectre

The AMD K10 And K8 CPUs Vulnerable To Spectre

Contents

It is common knowledge that the latest AMD Ryzen 7, Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3 are vulnerable to the Spectre exploits, and so are the older AMD processors based on their Bulldozer microarchitecture. But what about the AMD K10 and K8 processors? Today, we can confirm that AMD K10 and K8 processors from as far back as 2003 are vulnerable to Spectre.

 

AMD K10 And K8 Processors Are Also Vulnerable To Spectre

AMD has been transparent about how AMD processors are vulnerable to both Spectre exploits, and their mitigation strategies. However, they have never revealed which AMD processors are affected by the Spectre exploits.

While it was common knowledge that the latest AMD Ryzen 7, Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3, as well as the Bulldozer-based APUs are vulnerable to Spectre, no one knew for sure whether the older AMD K10 and K8 processors were also affected. After all, they were based on a different microarchitecture.

Confirmed : AMD K10 And K8 Processors Also Vulnerable To Spectre

That was until they revealed their Spectre mitigation strategies. Hidden in their whitepaper were references to AMD Family 10h (also known as AMD K10), as well as AMD Family 0Fh (also known as AMD K8).

So we now know, for sure, that the AMD K10 and AMD K8 processors are also vulnerable to Spectre.

 

What Are The Affected AMD K10 & K8 Processors?

The AMD K10 family alone adds 96 AMD server CPUs, 168 AMD desktop CPUs, and 77 AMD mobile CPUs to the list of vulnerable processors.

The AMD K8 family adds a further 128 AMD server CPUs, 137 AMD desktop CPUs, and 57 AMD mobile CPUs to the list.

For your convenience, we included the entire list of vulnerable AMD K10 and AMD K8 processors, split into three lists :
