Wonder if AMDs are going to be affected too ?
EDIT: The Nvidia driver is out now.
Probably, maybe. I honestly don't know, but their official response to it; An Update on AMD Processor Security
More or less say they are secure from the vulnerability. And at most, just need the Microsoft update.
Yeah, but they will probably need to update their GPU drivers to reflect new usage and separation of memory on Intel chips
amazing.. and we are talking about 2015 hardware not 2005!!
i think that the first updates shoud be the many browsers we use to surf the web
seems that processors from haswell included to older are those hitting worst performance impact after win10 update
any comparative between before and after win10 patch on haswell?
Impact will vary with each user and what hardware/software being used. With a bit of time and use there should be a more definitive answer to the impact caused. I would not be surprised to see more patches and bios updates to come.
Is the Nvidia patch going to affect gpu performance at all or is that just related to cpu as well?
only to CPU
Theres a new Microcode Data File out for my CPU, but its only for Linux.
No BIOS for my board yet, Asus x99-A (thats if its going to get a one, as its not on the list, they've only got 2x x99 boards listed that are going to get the BIOS fix)
You need to ask Asus,from support page,what they gonna do with your board and when will release an update.They need to provide bios updates.
Yeah they do, as surely they'll have to, im thinking now, about just unplugging my rig from the net, and only using it to game on, get a lappy for internet.
Its not a problem if you use it for internet browsing(safe sites) or gaming online.But not for let the computer 24/7 on.
From my post #44 on Microsoft Talks About Spectre and Meltdown Patches Performance Impact
If OEM will not issue new BIOS with updated microcode you can update BIOS file with updated microcode yourself and flash it back to BIOS. There are tools for that. Just ask here in case you will need that.
Thats good to hear, i don't do online gaming, do mainly browse safe sites, and i don't leave it on 24/7
Don't fancy trying to do anything like that, not with my luck
Well there is update to the Intel saga,more bad news better to wait a little bit before applying Intel CPU patch
Oh crap, not very promissing looking
Could anyone here on Guru3D with Haswell or Broadwell CPU based rigs had stabillity issues after modding/flashing motherboard with BIOS contaning latest Intel 2018-01-08 CPU microcodes? For this weekend I had a plan to mod and update motherboard BIOS's with latest Haswell microcodes on few of mine Haswell based systems but after reading this think I'm gonna wait a bit...
Do sada ni jedan .... so far no problem.
Neighbour, did you modded->flashed latest F9 (18.Sep.2015) BIOS for that GIGABYTE GA-Z97-D3H mobo of yours with latest Intel 2018-01-08 CPU microcodes yourself or you got from somewhere yet unreleased Beta BIOS for that mobo with integrated latest CPU microcodes?
