Today I spoke with one of my customer, he asked me re Synology, some kind of recommendation. I told him, that the new filter is still missing in the Product page, but found him "safe" CPU based model . I'm not a seller, but it must be hard to everyday task - to find a device what is out of this shame situation.
A recent post on Synology Community site denies a firmware update is required... in contrast with latest Intel post. [Maybe Synology had secret information... or they are blowing this off... Who knows?]
It may be that Synology had already applied the corrective actions that are part of Intel's instructions for deploying these chips? I noted that Synology said they had followed such 'n' such instructions for use on something or other.
Intel needs to find a solution for FW update together with all main MB vendors, otherwise Intel will pay a lot for all vendors:
- guarantee cost loss
- already produced machines with these CPUs (not just NASs, laptops, AiO,...), which is waiting in stores, distributors, vendor storages
- cost of all imaginable loss
uff it is not in millions, it is more and more. Then the motivation to find a SW solution is really cheaper for them. Need to wait.
