    Ryzen 3000 cant come out soon enough. Since 2018, my PC has slowed down greatly with all those fixes (4770k)... Its definitely very noticeable.

    Thanks for sharing, that clearly shows that Intel CPUs are not not necessarily the fastest around in every segment. And it shows that over the years I've lost performance with Intel far more than if I'd have taken an AMD system back then.
    It also gives us a hint of what will happen next: Probably more exploits who's fixes cripple Intel more than AMD, if they touch AMD at all.
    I can't see why it's not the logical consequence of many people, not all, to switch to AMD with their upcoming releases if they perform well enough. AMD might be "the safer bet" not only because of security these days, but also about performance, especially beyond 1080p gaming.

    I'm glad for you. Since the last update even opening video or audio from browser or system is causing a 1 second freeze when previously no lag or issues, even with multiple software open. Cannot even play enter the gungeon with chrome open now due to ridiculous game slowdown.

    Move to AMD or wait for Intel’s new 2021 processors.

    Just give me your 7700k and move to AMD .....you will be much safer that way!...no telling when they might attack!
    :p
    I would love to be the first person on earth to be affected by meltdown/spectre....I would be famous and make Front Page News everywhere!

    :D

    that's old and is related to the ARM cortex PSP co-processor, it should not affect the x86 CPU performance. Should be already patched by most MB vendors witha firmware update.

    I'd rather avoid those fixes related slowdowns and just stay safe online.

    That's accomplished by being offline.
