Without putting a tinfoil hat on (and going into the whole NSA/CIA/etc etc wanting hardware level backdoors in other nations networks)... I dont think there will ever be a 'perfect' chip. Men (and women) make them. They make them under deadlines. Mistakes and flaws creep in. Thats why white hat hackers are such a vital part of the ecosystem. They find the flaws, and in time the entire system is made stronger and better for it. Worrying over this is a waste of time. Use what is best for your needs and make your own decisions on how 'safe' your home server full of pr0n really needs to be. :P
