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

Re: what kind of workloads use/used TSX?

libc - the bloated one made use of TSX for Haswell/Broadwell. Not sure if anyone bothered since.

Can someone explain me how something invented in the 90s can be totally ruined by Craptel in the 10s?

I have heard some old timers say that microcode used to fix and add features to some CPUs - whereas Craptel just crippled the crap out of them - rendering them obsolete pieces of sand.

Apparently, TSX has been ruined from some time https://www.ipetitions.com/petition/make-intel-pay-for-its-mistakes
