If the 30% performance hit is true then that eliminates Intel's IPC lead.

**** just got real son.

Effect on hypervisor..

Expect things to get worse when firmware updates go out

Quick Facts about Meltdown and Spectre



https://www.hardocp.com/article/2018...ltdown_spectre


Quote:
What to do with the information we have today:

Average Desktop User (Intel): At this point your best and only option is to apply the Microsoft KAISER patch when they become available. As this attack is also reported to have delivery via web-browser via .js, it may be plausible to block .js execution from the browser as well.

Average Desktop User (AMD): Hold tight. AMD is adamant that these exploits do not affect their architecture. If anything changes, we are actively tracking and will alert you.

The Gamer (Intel): Performance impact benchmarks have not been done yet, so we really have no idea how much of a performance hit your favorite video games will take. You could risk it and keep Windows from updating, but we would not recommend that currently.

I wish all Ryzen users Happy Camping ...
