Wow, that is an important thing to consider.

How about you realease the source for your cpu microcode and Linux kernel BLOBs, Intel?

Intel’s graphics driver stack for Linux—everything from the kernel module to the userspace frontend and handlers for X.org/Wayland—are FOSS.

 

As the above said, microcode is more or less useless, though it’d be nice to have.

The only horror is that horror is no longer possible.

Yeah, what about our first-world problems?

I'm personally from 2nd world, but I'm sure people in Congo also have computers and would also like to be in control of them.

They're probably more concerned with being in control of their daily life or when they die long before they care about some pedantic complaint about how much "control" someone has over a CPU's "microcode".

what a load of shit!

what's next? we shouldn't drink coffee or eat chocolate 

or better yet, we shouldn't breathe because it's not conflict free

 

"we're now conflict free", with a massive PR campaign ... fuck off Intel -_-

were was your consciousness about few decade(s) ago? only now you realized the raw materials you use aren't conflict free?

That's a rather simplistic view of a country of 80 million.

And even you do imagine it to all be destitute peasants and warlords, those warlords would probably care about not having backdoors in the computers they use to organize their business.

Didn't know about that, but if Microsoft, Intel and AMD earns billions with their products, can't they give those so called miners some 10K dollars? Because we buy Intel / AMD / Microsoft products, and Intel / AMD / Microsoft made those products from minerals those miners made. So if we are buying those products, the biggest amount of our money should go to those miners. But we live in a weird world, right?

 

Unless I miss something.

I can't imagine how annoying it must have been for Linus and whomever else to clean up that mess on the table though... xD Oh boy that must have been so... so so so annoying, lol.

1. I'd actually like to see some sources on where their supply chain is in fact located.

2. Maybe some non-intel produced sources with that as well.

3. I don't care where my hardware comes from. I mean I do, but I don't because we have to live with what Capitalism presents us, and capitalism does not present us with "fairness". If you want hardware produced in a fair, safe and non manipulative environment find a chip manufacturer in a nation with a socialist model society. So until capitalism is dead (which I fully endorse) I don't want to hear about your multi- thousand dollar chip produced "responsibly".

I noticed the Conflict Free sticker on my 6800K and wondered when this started.   

Tell my tale to those who ask. Tell it truly; the ill deeds along with the good, and let me be judged accordingly.

ERMAHGHAD!!!

 

I work for the iTSCi Scheme and that Tag in the Intel video at 2:59 (see pic) is one of our tags ahhhhhh! I just ran over to the guy who does the tweeting for our company and made sure he tweeted about this lol

 

If you guys ever want to know wtf this Conflict Free stuff is about you can ask me :) I do the Traceability reporting for the scheme.

 

Our scheme is just one of the ways that Intel have ensured that their supply chain is conflict free.

I can't imagine how these products are conflict free. Really? Conflict free? that's just a marketing technique. They don't even explain how this "Conflic free" process works. If they are getting the minerals from Congo, then they are part of the conflict.

 

This is bullshit.

Or they could just, well you know, follow the rules that lets them be considered conflict free..

Awwww xD Poor Dennis.

If he did clean all of that mess up, I feel bad for him :( That's one big mess no thanks to it being contained in this package/packaging of this Unboxing.

Hey I'm Xiauj ^_^ Wassup :3

Companies like Intel are only declared Conflict Free when the Smelters who they source from are; so by proxy Intel can declare their Processors and chips etc as Conflict Free - as long as the Smelters they source from are CFSP (Conflict Free Smelter Program) compliant!

 

(How do I know) I produce CFSP reports for the Smelters for a living.

 

Basically the scheme I work on (iTSCi - the "ITRI Tin Supply Chain Initiative") - which only covers Tin, Tungsten and Tantalum (the 3 Ts), monitors the movement from Mine to Export, within the DRC, Rwanda and Burundi (and a site in Uganda), of mineral via a tagging system (in some other channels Intel 'unboxings' of this you actually see a "Logbook" getting the tag data recorded). The Mine sites are all vetted before any tagging is allowed to start, and there is constant monitoring of the situation on the ground, in these countries, to ensure that the supply chain has no vulnerabilities and that any armed groups are far enough away from the supply chain to not affect it (DRC is a HUGE country - and also one of the most beautiful places on earth).

 

Pretty weird day when you watch a LTT video during your lunch break and see a Tag appear that your running a report on :P

1. Visit https://www.itri.co.uk/itsci/itsci-project-overview/itsci-project-overview for more information

2. As above (we're non-for-profit so I apologise for the poor quality of the website, but meh, not my job)

3. Unfortunately the infrastructure in these countries is not good enough to support mass-scale production of chips or even the Smelting of the mineral (they did build a Smelter in the DRC but the power supply from the aging hydro damn wasn't sufficient to use it :( ) - practically all of the Tin, Tungsten and Tantalum mineral sourced in the DRC is from artisanal (read small scale - with pick 'n' hand) mine sites.

 

Sources - I produce the CFSP reports for Smelters in the iTSCi Scheme and have given talks in the DRC to governmental agents during training programs.
