Potentially fatal bug found in Intel Skylake Chips


#1

Hi guys.

Just stumbled upon this piece of news: there is a bug in Skylake chips that may crash the entire system if the chip is under tremendous load of calculations.

The bug was discovered by a couple of communities running extremely demanding calculations to find mersenne prime numbers.

Even the giants can sometimes fail :slightly_smiling:

Fortunately it will be solved by a BIOS update.
