    I5-3470 Old but still functional until now

      Hi, As the microcode updates for Intel CPUs are only going to be available for CPUs less than 5 years old I assume my I5-3470 is effectively junked by the Spectre and Meltdown issues. A perfectly operating computer may have to be trashed because there is no microcode update.

       

      Might I suggest that Intel puts away its corporate head for a short while and rescue it previous customers who if they can't be helped will probably buy an AMD chip in the future. It seems they are slightly less susceptible to these issues.

       

      No situation is perfect but how about extending the 5 years by a couple of years??

       

      Regards Steve
