A terrible start for 2018 and Intel. A security flaw was discovered in Intel hardware, and the fix could be VERY costly. Depending on what processor is in your computer, you might see performance losses anywhere from 5% to 30%. Yikes. And yes, even you Mac users will be affected. Here’s the scoop on Intel’s Kernel Security flaw. Pretty sure my next PC build will be an AMD…
*** UPDATE ***
Intel press release acknowledging the issue.
Google press release detailing affected products.
AMD press release explaining why AMD CPU’s aren’t affected the same way.
ARM official response to exploit on mobile processors.
