Safe to say, it's not a good time to DIY-build, upgrade (at least CPU) or purchase a pre-built rig, until either the "all-clear" or next gen CPU's that are not affected roll out?

where will not be any immune systems made for the next few years. so sit back and relax there will most likely be no new builds for foreseeable future.

I really hope the next generation or two worth of components aren't too far along in their development cycle that this is still an issue :/

Intel Inside = Patch-Buffet Inside, an unlimited time offer for lifetime enjoyment :-D

According to the Intel CPU design, the White House (Kernel) need to relocated for the security issue (Meltdown)!

According to Intel CEO, relocating the White House is the intended design!

It's so amazing that the company can continue selling the INTENDED faulty CPU chips designed basing on the specifications with the INTENDED flaw of not checking and not correctly handling the privilege levels, amazing!

My Dell desktop with i3-4170 + Win10 crashed during the weekend. Dell's BIOS tried to repair it. But it failed. So I ended up reinstalling Win10 clean.

This PC has been stable since I bought it 2+ years ago. Could this crash be the result of Intel's immature fix? I really doubt it. My interpretation is that the crash/reboot is caused by the issue in the updated BIOS. But I am not sure if Dell would automatically update its BIOS without giving me a prompt.

Certainly, the next CPU launch is too far along to fix. But Intel would be wise to delay the launch after that, if that's what it takes. Just imagine the performance boosts they'll be claiming, by comparing against CPUs having to use these patches!

This is what happens when there is no competition. Employees become less and less competent and proper quality assurances become less and less relevant.
