    Intel released a statement earlier today denying media reports that upcoming patches for a yet-to-be-disclosed security bug cause huge performance dips for devices using Intel CPUs.

    The vulnerability —detailed in a previous Bleeping Computer article here— is said to be a security issue that impacts Intel processors mainly.

    Details about this vulnerability are currently kept under wraps due to concerns of potential attacks that might try to exploit the bug.

    In its statement, Intel acknowledged the security issue for the first time but said that other vendors are also affected, and this is not an Intel-only issue.
