New Intel Spectre And MeltDown Patches For Kaby Lake-based Skylake Core X-series? – Yes, available now! – Says segmentnext
Spectre and Meltdown have hit Intel hard and the company has been trying to recover ever since and even though we got Intel Spectre and Meltdown patches for Skylake based chips recently, now Intel has announced the availability of Spectre and Meltdown patches for other architectures like Kaby Lake and Coffee Lake, which is the latest generation of CPUs that you can buy right now.
These patches have proven to be a bit tricky and while previous patches have had their problems we will have to test these out and see what kind of performance differences we get after installing these new patches. According to Navin Shenoy is executive vice president and general manager of the Data Center Group at Intel Corporation:
We have now released production microcode updates to our OEM customers and partners for Kaby Lake- and Coffee Lake-based platforms, plus additional Skylake-based platforms. This represents our 6th, 7th and 8th Generation Intel® Core™ product lines as well as our latest Intel® Core™ X-series processor family. It also includes our recently announced Intel® Xeon® Scalable and Intel® Xeon® D processors for data center systems.
