    Hey Brian,
    Is it time to buy or sell Intel Stock?
  • III-V - Monday, January 8, 2018 - link

    This Meltdown and Specter thing is so incredibly overblown. Can't wait for this nonsense to blow over so I can get some real news in my feed.

    "This Meltdown and Specter thing is so incredibly overblown. Can't wait for this nonsense to blow over so I can get some real news in my feed."
    Good response Brian!
  • Bullwinkle-J-Moose - Monday, January 8, 2018 - link

    A better response when taking the stage might be.....

    "Look, I'm not here to preach....
    We Fucked up!
    So, I'll just be taking your questions now"
  • III-V - Tuesday, January 9, 2018 - link

    You sound a little butthurt :)

    Those 1% performance loss! Switch over to Ryzen today and lose even more performance.
  • Zingam - Tuesday, January 9, 2018 - link

    Grow up, Gamerkids! When the overall performance increase over the last 5 years is less than 5% or sometimes it is even negative 1% decrease in performance can be huge. Maybe not on your lame $3000 desktop but on a data center that costs billions. Nobody really knows the true cost of this "feature". Researchers point out any numbers between 5% and 50% performance loss. Who knows what that might mean a couple of dropped frames or maybe stuttering. But that is not the important thing - security is what is most troubling and that this site is full of lame gamers!

    "When the overall performance increase over the last 5 years is less than 5% or sometimes it is even negative 1% decrease in performance can be huge."

    Well then thank goodness this is not the case in reality. Unless you're a 'gamerkid' and only look at average FPS charts in a GPU-unconstrained situation, performance has continued to increase (as can be seen by looking at the Anandtech Bench link at the top of the page).
