Intel has just revealed that an "electrical problem" in its 900MHz and 1GHz Itanium 2 processors can cause erratic behavior and even a system crash. Apparently, the glitch only rears its ugly head under a very specific set of circumstances, but Intel is offering to test and replace any afflicted processors.
According to coverage of the bug over at The Inquirer, erratic behavior can also be avoided by simply clocking an affected processor down to 800MHz.
