SKYLAKE CAN'T HANDLE PRIME NUMBERS INTEL IS FINISHED
it also said they are going to patch it in the bios update they are using a workaround so the faulty numbers can't be read.
a few weeks untill the patch
Ouch for intel.
Its a X86 instruction set yes it was used on Obsolite ISA bus
it was the Orginal one that can't hanngle prime numbers because there is one memory countroler instuction set that can make intel machines freeze
Older versions had no problem because the north brigde was not commected to the cpu and was redirected to a error control chip that stopped the error,
now that everything is on the CPU they have to patch it up.
yes that's right, faggots skylel still has support for ISA bus.
AMD already Blocked this code in their systems.
IBM didn't have a fix for this x86 bug back in 1990 so i don't expect it to be fixed anytime soon.
Sorry, I fucked up my post, the SATA 2 bug was the one I was thinking of.
Also it's not like AMD has had their fair share of problems, the Phenom TLB bug was way worse as the only way to fix it was to decrease the performance by 20%
It's not like our literacy rates have gotten any higher since then, New Zealand probably has one of the lowest pass rates for English for OECD countries.
Too many coconuts now, if you ask me.
desu, this does not affect any usecase apart from load testing
you'll never hit this bug under everyday conditions, or even stuff like running games or compiling software projects.
Okay, so? New chip has a bug, it gets found, fix rolls out.
Unless there's something I'm missing (for example if the fix necessitates a performance penalty), I don't see why it's a big deal. Processors have errata and microcode revisions all the time.
