Would you buy/use a computer that ran 3x slower than modern machines if it were more secure (less vulnerable to side-channel attacks)?


@cwebber what does "3x slower" mean? 3x longer to do anything?

@cwebber and how much more secure is it?

acceptable: processor does things at 1/3 speed but no one can break in without actively using the machine under my (or my executor's) credentials

unacceptable: processor unpredicably slows waaayyy down periodically to do things for an average of 1/3 speed, machine is perfectly silent
