    Note that Intel din't even mentioned the mitigations in the press briefing, they had to be specifically asked for any and all details

    I think it's more likely they just sell it as a performance upgrade, showing graphs of how the new CPUs are faster than the old ones (that have mitigations on ofc), without mentioning the bugs other than in the small print.
