Can Acer make a Swift 7 with an AMD processor and graphics card instead of intel?

Due to Intel's security issues with hyperthreading, I would love to get this laptop, as it would fit everything I need a laptop for, but if it was Quad-Core instead of Dual-Core, and if they used AMD over Intel, I would be instantly purchasing it for what I need it for.

    Good night xBlackCoyotex !

    Acer develops handsets and models according to each follow up.
    In this segment the AMD and Radeon suites are not so effective.
    In addition there are several security holes in the Ryzen series confirmed by AMD itself.

    I understand that other companies have security holes, however, the ones in the Intel Hyperthreading as of right now, will allow individuals to steal your information through a corrupted ad on the internet, without your knowledge. AMDs processors cannot have this done to them, as they are more focused on security than Intel is.

    I believe there is nothing I can do about this, but could there be a laptop the same size or smaller than the Swift 7 that runs on AMD instead of Intel? Or could there possibly be an AMD model?

    I am just wondering here, I would love this laptop like stated previously, but with Intel's security flaw, and the Dual-Core not Quad-Core for almost 3 thousand dollars, I am not willing to make this investment.

    Thanks in advance, Thank you for understanding,
    xBlackCoyotex
