A Major Flaw in Intel Processors, Slowdowns Expected
The microprocessor manufacturer Intel has found a serious flaw in its products, for PC , Mac and Linux systems. Experts predict more or less significant slowdowns due to its clogging.
The California firm reports a design error in the operation of its processors, the detail has not yet been given so that the fault is not exploited. Overall, concern about how our machines easily access the core (kernel) of the operating system to work in the best possible conditions. It seems, unfortunately it is possible for a hacker to access the kernel, one point more sensitive, and it is then scheduled to be isolated to protect him. Therefore, access will be slightly longer and is projected 5 to 30% of additional computing time according to requested task and processor.
The phenomenon affects all operating systems using an Intel manufactured over the past decade, and some of their code should be rewritten. A Windows update is scheduled for next Tuesday.
