So real was the plot apparently, that the CIA actually believed it to be a real con-spiracy. In a sweeping crackdown, the company’s PCs were summarily conﬁscated. Unfortunately, much like a raid on your own PCs would unearth some objectionable material, this raid turned up a document that was downloaded (I don’t want to say stolen) from an unsecured BellSouth system. The document detailed internal practices of a 911 emergency calling system and became the starting point of a growing wave of hysteria – by any measure, the document wasn’t critical; but what was portrayed to the world was that it could easily be used to take down emergency response systems in America. This was the early 90s, so you can imagine how esoteric all this must have seemed at the time. The CIA launched Operation Sundevil, almost a witch-hunt intended to burn hackers at the stake. The hackers, on their part, claimed col-lectively that their only crime was curiosity. The ensuing lawsuits that followed changed the way the law perceived hackers – essentially, as people who had a bit more knowledge about computer systems than regular folks did. One of the turning points of the case was when it was revealed that BellSouth had included the same document (detailing internal 911 practices) in a booklet that was already being sold to the public for a few dollars!
These tests are at the AMD/Intel base clock speeds listed. We can see the 1500X and 1600X making a great showing against the 7700K and 5820K here, coming in trading blows through Queen, PhotoWorxx, and Zlib. The Hash score is far and beyond the i7’s due to the utilization of the SHA extensions. AES tests utilize some benefits of the Zen architecture, which is why Intel trails there.
