Most of my PC's have on occasion behaved strangely is some way, perhaps blue screening, locking up, or some other kind of malfunction. If you are asking me how many of these thousands of failures was caused by a hardware bug in a cpu, my response would be how can I know? I never had the time or interest to track each one down, nor would it have been possible on many occasions as there was no evidence to follow up.

But just because I dont know for sure that I have been affected, does not mean that I have not. The question is unanswerable. Could this perhaps be why the hardware companies dont worry too much about fixing them? Its a thought.

I have a suspicion that the answer to your question could be literally hundreds of times. But I will never know for sure.

So I guess I am forced to answer none, for what thats worth.
