  1. “We conclude that disabling hyperthreading, in addition to flushing several microarchitectural states during context switches, is the only possible workaround to prevent this extremely powerful attack,” https://www.pcgamesn.com/intel/zombieload-mds-vulnerability-security-patch-hyperthreading-mitigation-performance Microsoft also recommends that “to be fully protected, customers may also need to disable Hyper-Threading.” But that’s up to your discretion. however "Chrome OS has, by default, disabled HyperThreading."
  2. the exploit is at the most basic level of operation, imagine if there was a problem with a car that it made so much horsepower it always spun on acceleration, so it quickly burned thru tires, but the tires it had were the best physically possible, well then the only fix for the problem would result in the car being slower. The basic level of operation is there to increase performance, any fix to filter for exploits would add instructions and complexity to everything the processor did involving this performance gain feature and thus would make its performance benefit less. Intel has added a fea
  3. lol " From what I've read Zombieload can be triggered from javascript stuff on webpages as well as local programs. Administrator access is definitely not required. Viewing an infected website seems to be all it takes. Intel and the CVE Organization (that's not the actual name of the organization but I don't know the actual name) have determined that this class of vulnerability is ranked as "medium" severity which means really bad but it means there is the potential for worse stuff." first post in the thread, so literally if you visit one bad
  4. you are downplaying the value of samsung b die, with DDR5 coming out and basically all ram above 3200mhz being b-die how will you cope with the truth
  5. there is a reason you cannot find reviews of the 9900k that test at anything over 1080p because at anything over 1080p there is no bottleneck 9900k bottlenecks your wallet in every single situation though since Ryzen @ 1080p with a 2080ti is 1000% playable at less than half the cost
  6. Micron is responsible for the deaths of thousands of 2080 and 2080 ti's they are the ENEMY I have bought two 2080 ti's if either of them would have had micron memory I would have noped.jpged them right back to whence they came
  7. who would pay $250 for a 1070 when the progression is 1060<580<1070 and used 580's are $100 woth 1660ti's which are basically 1070's at $280 buy a used rx 580 lol
  8. daily reminder the rtx 2070 is less than 10% faster than the rtx 2060 $350 with no BS A/NON-A
  9. see if this will still honor this tbqfh https://techreport.com/news/33821/amd-offers-i7-8086k-winners-a-threadripper-1950x-trade-in nvm you actually bought an 8086k, we all get it you bleed blue
  10. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CG41Y8Z $229 1440p 32" IPS 75hz
  11. No, you can get a 8 core/16 thread CPU and x470 motherboard for less than half the price of a 9900K by itself. With just the PCIE lanes on the AMD CPU you can handle a x16 video card, M.2 and a SATA SSD. The funny part is the 9900K is the cheapest 8 core 16 thread CPU for that socket and is actually part of the i9 series which is all on HEDT socket besides that chip, meaning as far as price and actual branding (i9) you want me to compare to TR4 at the same price point, which you can still get a 12 core/24 thread CPU for cheaper than a comparable 9900K setup, the CPU alone for AMDs HEDT series
  12. because intel scams you with insane prices for CPUs with shit tier PCIE lane counts
  13. Do not use KF for workstation, integrated GPU on intel processors actually helps many productivity tasks.
  14. yeah and a 1 year warranty meanwhile gaming 7 has 98% of the performance of the Taichi with RGB, mobo RGB sync, and a 3 year warranty. Not everyone wants to set record overclocks and I can vouch board OC's fine with air and liquid, can get within 0.1mhz of Tachi lol at thinking warranty is a good trade for an extra 1% performance
