I just got this "old" ish ASUS desktop computer and noticed there is no Intel sticker, so I researched it online and found nothing Intel being in this computer. The only thing I see is something called "A4 Vision AMD". Does anyone know if it would have a backdoor like Intel's CPU?

@glitcher32 AMD PSP was introduced in 2013 (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMD_Plat) so you'll want to find your CPU model and see when it was introduced and if it has PSP.

@glitcher32 FYI AMD PSP is not nearly as bad as Intel ME IIRC, because it doesn't allow a lot of direct control or network access like ME does. So even if that particular CPU has PSP it shouldn't be as bad as Intel in that regard.
