Intel just released a vulnerability notice, link below

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/security-center/advisory/intel-sa-00313.html

 

Noticed that Cisco Nexus Switch 9300 series and 7000 series use Intel CPU. 

 

Is it affected by Intel vulnerabilities?

Hi,

This vulnerability that you linked isn't regarding any CPU, its regarding BMC module which typically sits on motherboard. On site that you linked you can find list of affected products and most of them are intel made motherboards. I don't think Nexus using intel motheboard they just use CPU so you can ignore this vulnerability.
