    Is it safe to say this isn't Spectre proofed ? you'd think any new CPU launch now would be fixed against Spectre at the hardware level.

    I want to see this as a joke but I really don't believe that Intel give a crap enough to disrupt their development and release pipeline. They have taken the stance saying "there's microcode for spectre and OS updates for meltdown, get over it".

    And tbh, as it notes in the article this literally is a knee-jerk "hey everyone, we have something cool for low power devices too". It's really telling when there is no buildup, just all of a sudden they announce a single SKU which they've probably had for months, just kept in the ammo store.

    Hardware-level fixes "Later this year" said Krzanich.

    Well there is one plus out of all this for Intel.

    When they launch chips with hardware fixes, the marketing department can claim 'upto 30% performance boost over the previous generation'/s

    when you look at 3mnth turn around for a re-spin , and development time to make it work, later this year is going to be the earliest time they are going to be able to get them out of the door, even if they knew about it last summer

    Re: Intel announces Core i3-8130U for thin and light devices

    Bit late to the party considering AMD announced the Ryzen 3 2200U (2C/4T, 15W, Vega3 graphics) about a month ago. That said, I suspect we'll see i3 8130U devices before we see Ryzen 3 2200U devices at retail; Intel have still got the OEMs eating out of their hands...

    I bet it'll get lumped in with a 940MX in most laptops anyway

    Intel’s CEO said that the company was still working around the clock on addressing issues that have arisen in the wake of the discovery of Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities. Krzanich admitted that software fixes aren’t enough going forward and told investors that processor architecture changes were coming. “We’re working to incorporate silicon-based changes to future products that will directly address the Spectre and meltdown threats in hardware,” Krzanich asserted. “And those products will begin appearing later this year.”
    So they admit software fixes are not enough, but don't specifically call out what products will be Meltdown and Spectre proof? I mean literally the first thought that runs through my mind when I see any new product being released by Intel is, "is it Meltdown and Spectre proof at the hardware level?". I guess these are not, so no reason to touch them.
