They carry people in comfort, haul and tow heavy loads, and they can also be fun to drive. How about hitting the go-pedal, hearing the deep engine rumble, and beating a few people at a stop light or down a highway on-ramp.We put all the latest trucks through a battery of tests. We use a Solo DL and/or Vbox Sport gps-based devices to measure the truck’s acceleration performance with high accuracy.Cisco said it is also looking for problems in nearly 30 other products, including switches and routers.The majority of Cisco’s products were not vulnerable because they are “closed systems that do not allow customers to run custom code on the device,” it said.Intel and AMD have not disclosed the number of chips affected by the security flaws.
Rival AMD had also played down the threat, saying its products were at “zero risk” from the Meltdown flaw, but that one variant of the Spectre bug could be resolved by software updates from vendors such as Microsoft.“We (and others in the industry) had learned of this vulnerability under nondisclosure agreement several months ago and immediately began developing engineering mitigations and updating our cloud infrastructure,” Microsoft executive Terry Myerson wrote in a blog post on Tuesday.( Internet and networking equipment maker Cisco Systems Inc said in a security advisory updated on Tuesday that it has identified 18 vulnerable products, including some of its blade servers, rack servers and routers, and expects to have patches for servers in about five weeks, on February 18.Shares in Intel, which reiterated on Tuesday that it saw no sign of significant slowdown in computers, fell 2.5 percent taking the loss since the issue surfaced last week to about 7 percent or around billion in market value.AMD shares have gained nearly 20 percent in the last week as investors speculated that the chipmaker could wrest market share from Intel, whose chips were most exposed to the security flaws. 3 that affected nearly every modern computing device containing chips from Intel, AMD and ARM Holdings, owned by Japan’s Soft Bank Group Corp .It said the number of chips affected by Meltdown was significantly less.“ARM will address Spectre in future processors but there will need to be an ongoing discipline in the design of secure systems which needs to be addressed through both software and hardware,” a company spokesman said in an emailed statement.We try to minimize other factors, such as wind, by running our tests in both directions and repeating the 0-60 MPH test four times.We make sure the engines and transmissions are at operating temperatures and tire pressures are within specs. The truck that managed the fastest 0-60 MPH time at a mile above sea level is the 2016 GMC Sierra 6.2L V8 crew cab 2WD with the maximum towing package that includes a 3.42 rear axle ratio.The topic is of keen interest to large data center operators, which could incur significant cost increases if computers slow down.Microsoft also said that security updates froze some computers using chipsets from Intel rival AMD , dragging AMD’s shares down nearly 4 percent.
