Kernel-memory-leaking Intel processor design flaw forces Linux, Windows redesign
Bit of a major fuckup here:

Kernel-memory-leaking Intel processor design flaw forces Linux, Windows redesign

Short version: Windows and Linux need major patching to work around this, and that will have significant performance impacts (roughly 20% loss of processing speed).

AMD chips are apparently not affected, so should be fine. It's only Intel chips that are buggered.
