The chip giant then added that "similar behavior" occurs on some machines which have still-older Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge (2nd and 3rd-gen) processors, but more worryingly, newer Skylake and Kaby Lake CPUs (6th and 7th-gen). Shenoy noted that Intel has now delivered firmware updates to 90% of CPUs launched in the last five years, but one side effect of that roll out is that users have been experiencing frequent reboots. We don't know when an official patch for the problem will be launched, but Intel says it will be delivering microcode to its vendor partners for validation next week. "To date, we have tested server platforms running two-socket Intel Xeon Scalable systems - code-named Skylake, our latest server microarchitecture", Shenoy says.

More analytics testing is in process and the results will be dependent on system configuration, test setup and benchmark used.
Things are a little less encouraging when we shift to benchmarks for storage.
The story was different with I/O loads, however. When CPU utilisation was low (100% read case), as is the case with common storage provisioning, there was an increase in CPU utilisation, but no throughput performance impact. Using SPDK vHost (basically, virtualising it), had no specific impact.
Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) is not as insulated from the recent central processing unit (CPU) security flaw debacle, as the CPU manufacturer is now facing two class action lawsuits like its competitor Intel.
