Skylake Freeze Bug – MSI quick to fix!

News came to light this week that there is a bug that causes the Skylake CPU to freeze during very demanding scenarios. It’s rarely something that will affect day-to-day users but it is recreatable. You can read more about it here: http://arstechnica.co.uk/gadgets/2016/01/intel-skylake-bug-causes-pcs-to-freeze-during-complex-workloads/

MSI are the first manufacturer we have heard from regarding BIOS fixes for the bug and they have so far released fixes for the Z170A XPOWER GAMING TITANIUM and Z170A GAMING M7 motherboards. The rest of their line-up will soon receive the same fix and for now, the beta versions for the above products are here: https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=E3C739509D75DD13!34336&authkey=!APwSCZ8ReanOCKw&ithint=folder%2czip
