  1. I believe Broadwell-E is 6th generation since the processor names begin with the number 6. (E.g. i7-6800k) according to Intel’s naming scheme that would make it a 6th gen processor. Not sure if that necessarily means it’s vulnerable but it sounds like it might be and should be checked.
  2. I found it to not quite speak more of the security flaw so much as they just spoke of the detection tool. My post/article focuses more around the flaw itself than the detection tool.
  3. Intel has finally issued a security alert telling users and manufacturers that there is a security flaw in the Intel Management Engine firmware versions 11.0 through 11.20. I recommend everyone go to the detection tool on Intel's support website (linked above) to download and test their machine for vulnerabilities. If you own an Intel Core processor (including Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7) that is Skylake or later, an Intel Xeon processor (including E3-1200 v5 & v6 Product Family) that was released 2015 or later, you may be vulnerable to remote attack. This attack also extends to some Atom and Apollo Pentium/Celeron processors used in IoT devices and mobile devices. I also recommend checking your motherboard manufacturer's website to download any UEFI flash updates that may be needed to remedy these issues.

    AMD Polaris Giveaway

    Currently running an R9 280X, and man does it produce a ton of heat and suck a ton of power... The RX 480 would be an excellent upgrade with a boost in performance, and especially a boost in efficiency and heat output. This is what I've wanted from AMD for a long time, and I almost switched teams because of it! Best of luck to all.

    CableMod WideBeam LED Strip Giveaway

    My future build that I plan on creating is here: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/BNzH6h Complete with water cooling tubing and a white case / red LED theme. These LEDs would be perfect for this build! I plan on doing the build in late may when I return home from my current duty station! I would like maybe 4 of the magnetic red LED strips to complete the design for this build. Thank you guys!

    Apacer AS330 Panther Giveaway

    I think SSDs are important to have because it allows for much faster OS operation and for things just to be so much more snappier than they ever could be with a regular platter-based hard drive. Thank you for the giveaway guys!
  7. You're paying for your access to the internet. That is not inclusive of anything but access to web servers. If you're paying for internet, do you automatically deserve to have Netflix for free? No, you pay for content. You pay for internet first, then the special content you want on the internet as well.

    Thread For Tech Quickie Video Suggestions

    Ports, plugs, jacks, and connectors as FAST AS POSSIBLE. I can see many of the world-famous Linus sexual inuendos fitting in here. Also a genuine request. I'm sure whoever does the thumbnails will have fun with a joke too.

    Vortex Pok3r Giveaway sponsored by Massdrop

    I enjoy the full 104-key keyboards. While having the extra space and travel capabilities would be nice sometimes (especially when visiting a friend's house), it's also still nice to feel like nothing is holding you back from being as efficient as possible. I've never used a 60% keyboard before and would be interested in trying one out! Thank you for the giveaway guys as always!

    Sony Xperia Z2

    My favourite part of the Z2 is that it is water-proof and my favourite part of dbrand is that they make skins for video game consoles!
