Haven’t had a single issue, and I updated with the original version, not the re-release.

Same here (2 machines) No issues. I am wondering if the issues are being caused by third party software such as antivirus and such, or people not keeping everything updated.

Quote:
A new class of Microarchitectural Data Sampling (MDS) Vulnerabilities has been discovered, primarily affecting Intel CPUs, similar to the Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities. These are known by the aliases Zombieload, RIDL and Fallout. MDS is a hypothetical vulnerability that requires local privileged execution; as with Spectre and Meltdown, no known exploits using this method have yet been detected. Intel has released a Security Advisory on MDS, classifying it as a Medium risk. Microcode updates are being released as the primary mitigation; disabling HyperThreading is not necessary in most cases.

At this stage, current Intel CPUs are going to compete with the Intel 4004.

Intel says just disable hyperthreading.

These datacenter folks will be super happy about that.

Yesterdays Windows patches have begun to address this vulnerability. The performance impact is noted as limited, but can be more noticeable if you need to disable HyperThreading.

To see whether your system is vulnerable and to what extent, download the MDS Tool found on the middle of this page (https://mdsattacks.com/) and run the relevant executable. If you get an error, install this Visual C++ Redistributable Update and try again. .

At work we use a bunch of these dual core /w HT Lenovo laptops. They’re already kinda marginally usable but this might kill them. 18%-25% average performance drop and a 7-8x increase in context switch time? RIP. Where are the enterprise AMD laptops?
