    It is a big problem. Alas, overclocking means overspec, operating outside rated spec, no guarantees ... and no liability for Intel, they do demonstrate overclocks and tacitly support/encourage it, of course, but they never actually promise overclocks on any of their products. Not their problem, even if it is (quite arguably) their design flaw.

    So Intel may come up with better fixes, if anything better is possible. But they don't have to, and I'm of the opinion (just an opinion) that they won't because the affected products are basically not a market segment where Intel makes most of its money, they're a business and will likely focus (quite properly) on investing their support into those products which bring them their revenue. I think we can only hope Intel decides to be charitable (or obsessive) enough to invent better firmware updates ... or come up with our own.
