Another major triumph of Silicon Valley engineering incompetence.
Microsoft is going to slow down most all Intel 64 bit CPU computers on Tuesday, January 9th, in their regular monthly Windows updates. This after the corrupt finks at Apple got caught slowing down IPhones just before each new model was released.
Microsoft have to compensate for a fundamental design flaw in Intel’s processor chips which has gone unnoticed for 10 years. Expect a 5% – 30% slow down, depending on your tasks and your specific processor.
