    I'd be interested in seeing a review from someone on the performance effect of the different BIOS patches. Previous microcode/OS Spectre patches reduced CPU performance by about 3% (Skylake), I'd like to see what the performance hit is of these new upcoming patches against the 'more newly' found types of Spectre attacks.

    On this site ill be posting a review of what I saw to be the biggest performance hit, the Optane drives. I did some quick checking a while back and 4KQ1T1 dropped 25% post patching.

    I will be testing the 900P on 1709 + old BIOS and then on up to date 1803 + new BIOS. I should be doing the workstation build sometimes this week.

    Good stuff, are you gonna provide a link to it in this thread? Are you talking about testing the patches for the latest Spectre vulnerabilities discussed in this article (not the old ones)? Will you be doing CPU performance tests too, that's more interesting to me personally? I know that Optane and the very fast M2 PCIe SSDs already take a big hit in performance with even the current Spectre patches.

    I'll make a note of this thread so I can link it. The test will be very simple, OS + BIOS before any of these patches started and OS + BIOS 100% up to date.

    I will see what I have time for when it comes to other testing, the disk access is the one that will be the worst hit from I have seen and there wont even be a close second.

    More like Gigabyte teaming with Intel to sell more motherboards, cuz all i see is H370, B360, Z370 and X299.

    Sucks to be you Gigabyte because next round it will be ASUS for me.

    I have not used a Gigabyte board since my X58, that was a kick as board though.

    And honestly I dont know if I will. I have gotten quite the soft spot lately for ASRock boards.
    My last board was an ASUS X79, and it was bad ass also. That thing did 125 BLCK and I pushed a i7 3820 to 5.2 ghz.

    im not sure what this team up entails, gigabyte doesn't have quality software engineers
