  • Intel admits that its Meltdown/Spectre firmware patches trigger reboots on Haswell and Broadwell computers

    If you own a PC with a Haswell or Broadwell processor (roughly 2014 to 2016 vintage), I strongly recommend that you refrain from installing the Meltdown/Spectre firmware updates, when they arrive.

    Intel’s detected a teensy-tiny problem.
