    When will there be a fix for the Skylake/Kaby Lake hyper threading Issue for NUCs?

      Hi,

       

      currently there is a big discussion about a Skylake & Kaby Lake bug regarding Hyper threading.

       

      The bug is described in this Intel errata: SKZ7/SKW144/SKL150/SKX150/SKZ7/KBL095/KBW095.

       

      See also:

      for more details.

       

      As much I know, there already exists a Microcode fix for the bug, but the Microcode version must be at least 0x5d/0x5e.

       

      The newest BIOS version 46 (date was the 3rd of May)  for the current NUCs does not contain a fix for the bug, as much I could see (the Microcode version, I got, is 0x4e).

       

      The question is, when will be there a BIOS version containing a fix for the bug for Kaby Lake NUCs?

       

      Best Regards,
