I suppose a recall is out of the question due to the number of processors affected, many of which aren't even in production anymore.

Well, I think it would not just be out of the question, it would literally be impossible to recall 2+ billion cpu and replace them.

Better solution, fix the security issue and disable the fix when a game runs or give user white-listing abilities. 23% performance reduction would definitely make me NOT apply that update. This issue isn't exploitable over the web anyhow. Hax needs full access to your rig, so sandbox and no problem. Although.. I think this issue could actually make sandboxes leak... now wouldn't that be something.

But until we can read what is actually patched we dunno really
