Intel sticks another nail in the coffin of TSX with feature-disabling microcode update

what kind of workloads use/used TSX?

Am assuming probably greater than 90% of workloads never use TSX, but am curious can anyone name an application or type of workload that did? I came across this blog post that explains what TSX is https://software.intel.com/content/www/us/en/develop/blogs/transactional-synchronization-in-haswell.html But to my brain it doesn't give me any clues as to being able to name a software application that might take advantage of it.

Some kind of database? HPC maybe? media encoding? super obscure custom in house apps?
