Intel Chip Patch on Older Computers, Tablets & Smartphones- Update June 4th 2019
It is now evident all the big tech players are supporting the current patch, despite it slowing affected Intel processors significantly. Microsoft, Apple and all major Linux distros have released their version of the patch. It also appears that more computers have this problem than was initially announced. It is NOT limited to Win 7 and earlier versions of Windows, as I previously quoted from early press releases. It very likely is present in most modern era Intel chips, even those being made today. It takes a long time to retool a processor making facility. Some tech experts go so far as to say, “On May 14, 2019, a new class of Intel CPU vulnerabilities was published by the microchip giant. Known as speculative execution side-channel vulnerabilities, they affect almost every Intel processor produced since 2011 – this includes a great number of servers, laptops, smartphones,…”
Thus there is no avoiding the patch. No better patch is on the horizon. Turn Updates back on if you followed my earlier advice to turn updates off. A slow, safe computer is better than a fast, infected computer.  The best we can do now is keep our computers well maintained and updated.
New Tech Purchases: I would advise anyone looking to buy a new computer, tablet or smartphone to only buy the newest models they can find if Intel Chips are used. Or buy a device with AMD or ARM processor chips. So far, AMD and ARM chips have not suffered from the chip flaws and remain safe. How to tell what chip a device has? Most laptops, not all, have a sticker with INTEL or AMD near the keyboard. Other devices will say INTEL or AMD or ARM on the carton. If in doubt, ask the salesman to show you the date-of-manufacture and Chip-maker’s stickers or check the model’s Official Manufacturer’s specs/details page on the internet. Many “on sale” and budget models, especially loss-leaders sold at the big discount shops, have sat in warehouses for a year or 2. The older it is, the more likely it will get the “slow down” chip flaw patch update as soon as you do the first updates after setup. The newer it is the less it will slow down after doing the chip-patch updates.
