Hopes to exorcise the spectre in the machine
Chipzilla has announced the availability of a new "microcode solution" to the Spectre vulnerability. The updated firmware applies to 6th, 7th and 8th Generation Intel Core devices.
Ice Lake U with 48 CUs
Intel is soon to release its 8th generation Coffee Lake H processors for notebooks but according to a recently leaked roadmap, there is still no sign of 10nm processors. The Ice Lake U, a 10nm notebook part might come with significantly improved graphics, but it is coming in the uncertain future.
No plans to make an actual product
The tech press became rather excited last week when Intel started showing off a new GPU with some even claiming it would change the industry. It turns out that Intel has no real interest in changing the industry for now.
Pentium, Celeron, and non-K Core i5 and Core i3
As expected, Intel has expanded its Coffee Lake lineup with new SKUs and some retailers/e-tailers have already started selling some of those chips, including non-K Core i3 and Core i5 SKUs, as well as budget-oriented Pentium and Celeron SKUs.
Spectre and Meltdown attracts lawyers like flies
Chipzilla has said that shareholders and customers had filed 32 class action lawsuits against the company in connection with recently-disclosed security flaws in its microchips.
Confirms leaked slides for Q2 launch
Those looking to upgrade to a notebook that packs a bit more punch might be in luck as Gigabyte has hinted that Coffee Lake-H CPUs might come by the end of March, which is pretty much in line with the recently leaked slides.
Intel has recently added eight unannounced desktop Coffee Lake processors to its MDDS database.
But is still working on more
Intel is still working on updates that close the hole in the bulk of its chips and has released microcode updates for Skylake-based chips to its industry partners.

Intel has been doing well thanks to its datacentre market, but that could vanish if the company's former president has anything to do with it.
