    Skylake is out for approx 2 years now and I dont see anyone complaining about any random crashes. It is not a major issue. Your MB manufacturer will issue a new bios update soon.

      not even that

      i believe windows 10 will push o/s updates out that will fix this

      for maths people like finance, analysis etc. just disable HT, its useless anyway

      Yeah, malicious software usually randomly crashes things so you know you have it, virus writers are dumb like that. The fools!

    Ah yes, this is a very serious bug that results in only a minuscule 5-10% performance increase for each new generation of Intel chips. The best way to deal with it is not pay a premium for marginal upgrades, Sandy Bridge still going strong ;)
