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

An Intel spokesperson mentioned that the company is actively investigating the root cause of the problem but expressed confidence that the firmware mitigation effectively resolves the issue. As a result, Intel has resumed shipping all versions of SPR-MCC (4th Generation Intel Xeon Medium Core Count) processors and is working with customers to deploy the firmware update as needed.

The pause in shipments was a precautionary measure taken by Intel to ensure the stability and reliability of its processors for its customers. With the issue now resolved, the delivery of processors has returned to normal operations.
