Intel Successfully Patches Buggy Sapphire Rapids Chips After Brief Pause in Shipments
Intel has confirmed that it has resolved the bug affecting some of its 4th-Gen Xeon Scalable processors, also known as Sapphire Rapids chips. The bug had caused a pause in shipments of processors with between eight and 32 cores, leading the company to investigate the issue and develop a fix.
The specific details of the error are still relatively limited, but reports suggest that the bug did not manifest itself when processors were running commonly available software. This indicated that the issue was more likely to occur with niche applications.
