Re: Kernel-memory-leaking Intel processor design flaw forces Linux, Windows redesign

Hopefully once this patch fixes the issue they can take some time and make a performance boost update. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Three Lawsuits Launched Against Intel Over ‘Defective Chips’

Over the past few days, three class action lawsuits were launched against Intel in California, Oregon, and Indiana. The consumers who participated in the lawsuits argue that when they purchased the processors they were promised a certain level of performance. The Meltdown and Spectre patches seem to degrade performance at least in certain workloads, as acknowledged by Intel, so they now seek compensation.

“Defective” Chips
The plaintiffs in all three lawsuits argued that Intel has been advertising “defective” chips to them for at least the past 10 years. The Spectre flaw in particular comes from the design Intel chose for its chips a long time ago, perhaps to the detriment of security.

Re: Kernel-memory-leaking Intel processor design flaw forces Linux, Windows redesign

I got the patch and now my 950Pro is a bit slower than before the patch on CDM, not on all the benchmarks but on 4KiB Q8T8 its 400 points slower. I ran trim on the 950Pro just before I just tested it....the OS with patch is OS build 16299.192! The CDM on the left is before patch the one on the right is with patch!

Re: Kernel-memory-leaking Intel processor design flaw forces Linux, Windows redesign

I will let Windows auto-patch my PC. I am not concerned about this at all and I will take no actions. If on the other hand it was bad enough that Intel would offer a free change out I would except.

Re: Kernel-memory-leaking Intel processor design flaw forces Linux, Windows redesign

If you have Win10 latest build and are always logged on to your MS account you will probably be first to get it. I gotta be on the bleeding software edge.

Re: Kernel-memory-leaking Intel processor design flaw forces Linux, Windows redesign

Microsoft is doing some testing and has provided some preliminary information and its not good.

Here is the summary of what we have found so far:
  • With Windows 10 on newer silicon (2016-era PCs with Skylake, Kabylake or newer CPU), benchmarks show single-digit slowdowns, but we don’t expect most users to notice a change because these percentages are reflected in milliseconds.
  • With Windows 10 on older silicon (2015-era PCs with Haswell or older CPU), some benchmarks show more significant slowdowns, and we expect that some users will notice a decrease in system performance.
  • With Windows 8 and Windows 7 on older silicon (2015-era PCs with Haswell or older CPU), we expect most users to notice a decrease in system performance.
  • Windows Server on any silicon, especially in any IO-intensive application, shows a more significant performance impact when you enable the mitigations to isolate untrusted code within a Windows Server instance. This is why you want to be careful to evaluate the risk of untrusted code for each Windows Server instance, and balance the security versus performance tradeoff for your environment.

This could be the end of my C2Q/X48 ride

Expect more security incidents in the future as service providers "balance" security against performance, i.e.: trade security for better performance.

Either my board is not impacted or it's too old. In either case, I can live with it.

Same! I'm sure our systems are impacted though.

I haven't downloaded the latest Windows patches yet, either. I'm fairly concerned about performance degradation. But will have to do it eventually of course.

I'm still confident this rig willl run FC5 at ultra settings at least at 1080p, but this security issue may force an upgrade if performance is compromised too far.

Fortunately for me I dont use the desktop for browsing these days, so security isnt too much of an issue.

You have a very good mobo still and a killer CPU. I would not think about getting rid of it. I hope my current setup gets to be as good as my last.
