    I've heard/read that the 9700k and 9-series in general have spectre mitigation on hardware level, correct? does this mean that the performance on these cpus is exactly the same as if the spectre mitigation was completely disabled by software, or is there still some penalty ?


    would running a tool like InSpectre that can disable spectre/meltdown protection on older cpu like ivybridge, bring any performance benefit at all on a coffee lake cpu? etc,


    thanks for any help!

    There's a slight performance hit keeping it enabled on my 9600k. Since it's protected on a hardware level, I just disabled everything with inspectre.
