Intel Itanium 2 'Glitch"

I'm wondering if anyone ahs see this or has any comments on it.

I've heard that this bug apparently only affects Linux and Windows based platforms and not HP-UX.

Thoughts anyone?

Re: Intel Itanium 2 'Glitch"

So far I have not been able to find the complete details of the bug. One report said if certain processes were run in a certain order against a specific set of data and the temperature exceeded a certain level, it could crash the system and potentially cause data corruption.
Pretty vague and pretty rare. It can not be completely dismissed but, until the vendors start being specific on it how can you estimate your risk?
