Intel releases their internal performance analysis after Spectre/Meltdown fixes

How hard has Intel's performance been hit?



Read more about Intel's internal performance impact assessment of Spectre/Meltdown fixes.

And what about Gens before Gen 6? AMD from now on with me and sooner rather than later, not looking forward to see what happens my i7 4790K

I doubt any one will actually notice it, but it will be there (the deficit). However, one thing I do know is that Ryzen plus is going to look an awful lot better than it was about to. Especially if people bench it against new results after the Meltdown patch.

That is the one that really causes issues. And of course, AMD are not susceptible to that in any shape or form. That is the one that literally needs a new kernel to address the CPU in a completely different way. And it causes latency and other issues which is why there is degradation in certain things.

And if you were very conservative and said that overall you have lost around, say, 8% performance? then wow, every single last % of that can, and will, be exploited by Ryzen +.

In fact, it almost closes the deficit between Ryzen and Coffeelake to absolutely nothing. Instead of it being "sort of" on par with Broadwell E.

I've got a 4790k myself and I in no way give a toss if I update or not. I won't be affected and I know it. Why? cuz no one cares about my downloads / porn collection / or achievements.

Yes that is silly logic and I know that but the point is - most normal everyday people will NEVER be targeted by cyber related attacks. Old people and the very young or the rich are who are targeted 99% of the time lol.

People said that about the tools leaked from that NSA hack and that didn't end well, did it?

Someone will work out how to create a module that exploits it, charge x% of a bitcoin/litecoin/whatever and start selling it to people who distribute malware. As with everything IT Security related, its only a matter of time before something happens.

It effects mostly VM's/DataCenters/Servers/etc. Consumers don't really have that kind of environment. It has to do with CPU branch prediction and when it mispredicts the correct next instruction, consumers don't really ever get this problem as you don't do complex enough tasks to warrant a failed prediction. Most CPUs have a 99% branch prediction success rate and I am sure it's even higher. CPUs that were amongst the first to get this would be more affected as the algorithms are less efficient.

Misprediction happens all the time.

I asked Intel today about Gens prior to their 6th Gen CPU's and this is the reply I got from them:
