HT Update on Intel® 6th and 7th Gen Skylake and Kaby Lake-based processors

Version 2

    Intel has identified an issue on the Intel® 6th Gen (Skylake) and 7th Gen (Kaby Lake) based processors.


    • This issue can only happen while the processor is in hyper-threading mode.
    • There is a very low probability of exposure to the issue due to the significant number of complex conditions required to trigger the issue.
    • A fix for this issue is available and started rolling out out to system manufacturers in April 2017.
    • Intel recommends contacting your System Provider (Manufacturer) directly to make sure your BIOS is up-to-date.
