    My laptop is also a Core2Duo with a HDD. I updated it also and ran a disk optimization but I was afraid to test it and just shut it down.

    I've already updated my Dell laptop with i3 7100U and 1tb HDD....no noticeable performance impact after half a dozen reboots.

    I´d much rather be safe, since i use my pc for alot of fekking things... Even that i´ll cry for my lost fps, if it goes to that.

    It wont be effected greatly by the patches, since it will likely never get a microcode that causes the larger performance hit, it will be protected from meltdown, but not spectre.

    Ok, I downloaded the update and my motherboard's uEFI is the latest one (that has an Intel ME vulnerability fix thing in the change log... so i guess that's this thing. Released Dec 2017)
    Some test pre, and post update.
    PC has an MSI Z170A PC Mate (hey gets the job done :p) with an i7 6700 non-K with 16GB of Crusial DDR4-2400 and a GeForce 1070 with driver ver. 388.43.
    SSD is a SATA3 Kingston V300.

    Images in the fold.

    Pre-update:

    Post update:

    Pre-update:

    Post-update:

    FireStrike actually gained 900ish points, and TimeSpy gained 350ish points...
    So thinks on a Skylake look like the benches on the article as well.

    It's been mentioned if your chip doesn't have idx or something, then your going be closer to the 30% performance hit Intel quoted, newer chips have this idx which is been used to make performance hit 2-3% on newer chips.

    IME vulnerability and Meltdown/Spectre "flaw" are completely different.

    What's with the references to THG lately? Most of us are fully aware this isn't THG regardless of how stupid a lot of the posts related to these issues are getting.

    UPDATE
    My Core2Duo laptop was ok so I checked into it more. There was a firmware update for my SSD and that fixed the issue.

    Thanks for the nice and timely benchmark review Hilbert, as usual.

    Most of the performance losses that consumers see, will likely be mitigated in some way. Whether it be from SSD firmware updates, updated drivers or updated software. The public reaction is, imho, greatly overblown compared to the potential risk from going unpatched.

    Ended up updating the system.... man i wish they made this less nerve racking... seeing your system go off and on just makes my poor heart go... it seems to be totally fine and working from what i can tell.. had to update bios settings again with XMP ram... but beyond that it seems fine... hopefully this bios and with MS update coming next week this should just totally fix everything...

    Heres to all these PC's not blowing up

    Bios patch is also required. That's where the performance drops.

    Yo guys is Gigabyte going to release a BIOS update like ASUS's 1003? Or is 1003 open for all manufacturers? Not quite sure on that one.

    My mobo seems to have bios updates released last year and also the ME update thing was listed, so I'll keep hoping Asus won't forget their Z170 Pro Gaming for this one either. It was quite a popular Skylake mobo, and it wasn't the absolutely cheapest either, increasing the chances, I choose to believe.

    So, i read in the comments that a new BIOS is required aswell. My latest BIOS update for z68 was in 2013... I dont have much hopes then. Running ivy bridge i5 3470...

    Yeah my Z87X-UD3H doesn't look like it has any BIOS updates, neither does my Z68X-UD3H-B3.

    Chances are everything from at least skylake and up should be updated... issue comes with stuff before that, there is a chance it never will or it might not for quite some time. and those with even older CPU's going back to the dual cores and maybe even sandy bridge might never see an update
