Intel Resumes Shipping Xeon MCC Processors After Bug is Mitigated

We reported last week that Intel Intel has confirmed that it had paused shipments of some of its fourth-gen Xeon Sapphire Rapids processors due to a newly-discovered bug, but it hadn’t set a specific date for shipments to resume. The company has now issued a statement to Tom’s Hardware indicating that it has developed a firmware fix and has resumed shipments. 

“Last week, we informed you of an issue on a subset of 4th Generation Intel Xeon Medium Core Count Processors (SPR-MCC) that could interrupt system operation under certain conditions. Out of an abundance of caution, we temporarily paused some SPR-MCC shipments while we thoroughly evaluated a firmware mitigation. We are now confident the firmware mitigation addresses the issue. We have resumed shipping all versions of SPR-MCC and are working with customers to deploy the firmware as needed.” — Intel spokesperson to Tom’s Hardware
