That very much depends on the details.

The bits that are available right now suggest that someone has figured out how to jump the gap between the 'public' and the 'secure' networks. If that's true a NAT would not help once packets are forwarded.

It would really help if Intel came clean and indicated exactly what the exposure is here.

It's easy to think of ways to jump NAT -- port forwarding, UPnP, reverse tunnels, so on. To me the real question is whether or not this exploit can jump NAT without needing any of other hacks or techniques or (possibly unwitting) user intervention.
