Intel Successfully Patches Buggy Sapphire Rapids Chips After Brief Pause in Shipments

In response to the bug, Intel promptly developed a firmware update to address the problem, making it available to existing customers. However, it remains unclear whether new orders of Sapphire Rapids processors come from the factory with the fix already installed. TechRadar Pro reached out to Intel for confirmation on this matter.

Intel’s 4th-Gen Xeon Scalable processors faced numerous delays and holdbacks before their launch earlier this year. Despite the initial hiccup caused by the bug, the resumption of shipments after applying the fix indicates that the issue has been successfully mitigated.
