Is Apple about to snub Intel?

Is Apple about to snub Intel?

Intel has issued new a new Microcode Revision Guidance that says it won't fix the Meltdown and Spectre design flaws in all of its products, sometimes because it isn't possible to address the Spectre v2 variant. But while it's rolled out updates for all processors launched in the past five years, it has now revealed some older CPUs won't be patched at all. Built on the Coffee Lake platform using the 14nm++ process, Intel promises the new processors can edit 4K video up to 59 percent faster than the seventh generation chips with the same discrete graphics, which should be great news for video editors, especially as 4K continues to become the new standard. These include older chips with some starting production in 2008.

In a statement provided to Tom's Hardware, Intel pointed to limited ecosystem support for the updates.

Bloomfield, Bloomfield Xeon, Clarksfield, Gulftown, Harpertown Xeon C0, Harpertown Xeon E0, Jasper Forest, Penryn/QC, SoFIA 3GR, Wolfdale C0, Wolfdale M0, Wolfdale E0, Wolfdale R0, Wolfdale Xeon C0, Wolfdale Xeon E0, Yorkfield, and Yorkfield Xeon. It also has the new Intel Thermal Velocity Boost (TVB), which claims to offer a turbo frequency of up to 4.8GHz.

Use HP, Lenovo or Dell?

Apple and Intel did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Not willing to squander a juicy free hit, Congress leaders and the party's IT cell had a field day with Shah's comment. All electronic voting machines will be linked to Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) machines, he said.

Sensitive data protected by Intel's Software Guard Extensions could be open to a new side-channel attack.

Intel rival AMD, meanwhile, has yet to release any microcode updates for Spectre whatsoever, relying instead on third-party protections such as the use of a return-trampoline (retpoline) aware compiler for kernel compilation.

Customers accuse the chip maker of charging premium prices for a faulty product.

"As the PC gaming industry rapidly grows, Intel has seen increasing demand for incredibly fast laptops that can provide desktop-like performance for an immersive and responsive experience, including the ability to stream and record without compromising gameplay while still enabling portability", said Intel in the press release. For example, the Bloomfield processors in question are high-end first-generation models: the Intel Core Processor Extreme Edition i7-975 and i7-965, and Core i7-920, 930, 940, 950, 960 (alongside Xeon offerings).
