He'd be looking at jail if your implication is accurate.
You had me until you made it political.Maybe a few years ago but in the current political climate there is almost no chance he will be prosecuted. Equifax CFO sold millions of dollars in stock and options after they found out about the hack and he is sitting pretty right now. I think BK with his well-known Trump connections will be fine.
I bet someone at the NSA is going
"DOH! we got caught trying to be big brother Trump... lets pretend like we dont know anything."
but on another note...
If we do get a performance hit that big, Intel better be doing recalls... the chip is no good, infact its worse then last gen, and would make no sense to keep it over last gen.
Several months ago I think there was a rumor was Intel managers were telling validation teams to hurry up. It's ridiculous because validation can't be sped up. Errors are caught over time, not at your will.
If that was true, then they would be paying the price for it. This bug, the minor bug Skylake-SP has(LSD), Atom C2000, Puma series modems, I woudn't be surprised if they were ALL affected by it. How unfortunate.
Apparently AMDs request to be excluded from the bug patch hasnt been merged or accepted, perf loss is likely
Lol, you're talking about probably 85% of computers sold in the last 8 years. That's hundreds of millions of computers. No recall is happening.Um....those are massive performance hits. We're not talking 1% here. Intel should recall every single CPU impacted if this is the case.
Its architecture is old, I'd expect it is affected, Cannon Lake possibly too. If it was already fixed in it, that would likely mean Intel knew about the issue but didn't inform public/users to keep selling stuff.Newly released current Gen Coffee Lake is not effected by this bug correct?
True, Kaby and Coffee are basically newer revisions of Skylake core. Anyway Coffee retail chips are being produced since mid summer, so I doubt are not affected. And even if not then I dont understand the post above with benchmarks where is clearly performance hit on the Coffee Lake chips.It may be "old" but Intel has been fixing errata in the Skylake Core, from Skylake S through Coffee Lake S
