MGA7-64 MATE on Peaq C1011 - Intel Atom processor
No installation issues
Rebooted after installation, no problems with different file types, network acess.
Good enough here.

These are all the references in the latest journal after reboot.

At a guess it looks like this hardware is not affected. It continues to run nicely anyway.
Intel Core i7-4790 type: MT MCP
Everything behaving as expected after reboot.

We haven't received complains about this previous update in Bugsquad.
Nor, in MLO french forums.
Also, this update is silently installed on a Intel Core i5 6600K Skylake.
If anyone with a Tiger Lake processor should install this ASAP.
Advisory pushed to SVN.
Intel CPU: i7-3770 OK
No problem here a few hours on my workstation, with BOINC exercising the CPU and GPU full wile I surf bugs, edit photos, libreoffice, etc.

That's because it only affects a subset of Tiger Lake, namely the TGL-UP3 so maybe not many Mageia users even have that hw
An update for this issue has been pushed to the Mageia Updates repository.
