hmm interesting, soo XNU is not effected, correct? 

nope. All OSes supporting Intel x86-64 CPUs are affected.

 

Only things not affected are any AMD CPUs, ARM CPUs, Power CPUs, or any non Intel CPUs.

If it takes chunk of my gaming performance, I'm going to be pissed. 

 

It would pretty much force me to build a new PC.

And Intel Core 2 Duo/Quad and below are unaffected, if anyone is still running those.

For the games tested, benches show no difference. For games that utilize a VM for DRM implementation, RIP. (looks at Ubisoft).

Can I have a dumbed down TL;DR so I can explain the upcoming situation to my tech illiterate family?

World is about to end. Only way to save is to throw every Intel computer away and buy AMD.

Anyone know if the Intel Atom is affected?

if it's a 64 Bit Atom when probably. the Z2xxx Atoms were 32 Bit and so likely  potentially are unaffected.

From what I understand anything that supports virtualization extensions is affected i.e. VT-x and VT-d

Ouch. That's not good :(.

 

And just the other day I was contemplating doing IOMMU style stuff using VT-d.

 

Guess not anymore rip lol.

And sadly, disabling those extensions won't fix the vulnerability. That would be way too easy, after all.

Intel cpus from the past decade? Now it's 2018, past decade is 2008. During that that time you have your Intel Core 2 Solo, Duo, and Quad, so those are all affected? Basically any cpu before the Core are not affected like the old school socket Pentium.

Long live Pentium with MMX!

Its Intel's fault for being idiots and not fixing this for TEN YEARS.

They didn't have any competition, so why bother.

So maybe the tables might be turned in this scenario? :o

Or, maybe my desktop's 4790K will drop performance to this level?

No.  You're still getting a processor that runs on x-architecture at y-clockspeeds.  It's not intel's fault that your operating system may get an update that makes it perform slower.

 

I'd really like to see all benchmarks redone after these updates go into place to see just how much of a hit tasks of all sorts take.

Yea lets just ignore the fact that the whole reason is a hardware flaw

This is gonna hurt cloud computing/virtualization/hosting-providers like a mothertrucker, including the really big names like e.g. Microsoft and Amazon. They'll basically have to rebalance the workload on every single server built-on on Intel-hardware because of the drop in performance and then buy new hardware to offset the loss -- at least in cases where customers were promised a specific performance-level. I can just imagine the collective groan from all the thousands of sysadmins and the work they're going to have to go through.

 

Though, AMD is gonna laugh all the way to the bank on this.

Might be time to move on from my 4790K to Ryzen


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

Ugh, DDR4 is way the heck too expensive for me to ever justify such a move.

Or the companies that think the performance they have is an acceptable risk to an exploit, among other things that companies like to do to save money.

 

Because if anyone's going to pay for those hardware changes outside of an upgrade cycle, it's you.
