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

Interestingly, the numbers are very different on here than they are on birdsite. Many more people here seem to be willing to take a speed hit for security here than there. Not surprising, I suppose: selection bias.


@cwebber There wasn't a "3x slower than modern machines would probably still be faster than my nine-year-old desktop machine." 😆
