    A few weeks ago a team of mathematicians called the Mersenne Community, came across a bug in the Intel Skylake architecture. When such Intel systems were tasked with hunting for prime numbers, using the Prime95 software, they would reproducibly experience system freezes depending upon the program parameters. The same software “works perfectly normal” on all other Intel processors of past generations, it was noted.

    BIOS updates on the way to fix problem says Intel

    I guess they have already found the problem and the fix will be released via bios update through the motherboard companies according to a friend.
