So, no difference.

 

The whole thing was overblown.

It’s in the realm of measurement accuracy/error.

Maybe for Windows. It’s real in Linux.

Here are my before and after.  Hardly any difference.  I thought I was saving the one screen with the speedometer but I screwed up, sorry.

ok 

 

Lenovo X201 Test. (old system)

 

Core i7 ULV M620@2.67ghz

 

Benches used 

  • Cinema4D
  • Passmark

 

Passmark Before

AFTER 

5a4e958691f73_lappypost.thumb.jpg.259bfe9816feb65a582df57b81d53235.jpg

 

Cinema 4D

CPU = 204cb

OpenGL= 0.78 FPs (LMFAO)

 

AFTER

CPU= 207cb ????

OpenGL= 0.79

 

Hardly thorough benchmarking but both higher than before patch....go figure!

 

I would like to see some benchies submitted with AMD chips for a more rounded dataset tbh.

 

Teacup, meet storm ;)

I installed the update and it turns out that kernel VA shadow is off.

 

No wonder it's not having any performance impact.

I would say the patch didn't penalize my Windows 10x64 system as much as I thought it would.:rolleyes: yay

The reason why older CPUs see a larger performance hit is the absence of PCID. PCID mostly mititgates the performance hit. Not sure how far it goes back (haswell maybe?), but seventh and 8th gen Intel CPUs should not feel the burn.

Further research and discussion with co-workers on my end  has shown that unless the process/app/whatever is making sys calls, it’s not going to make much of a difference.

I also read something similar, the performance hit is only when making sys calls, so a VM would potentially have a performance decline, correct?

ill get back to you on that tomms mate, I set up a W10 VM and 2k16 server VM for testing at work before leaving today. On Lenovo X Series hosts running Esxi 6. (12 Xeons per host)

 

corpwide were assessing and deciding if its worth pushing the patch out, Sec dir above us reckons while its a stinker, it doesnt pose any real world threat to our global estate at this point in time. for one the systems need to be compromised before this is even a "thing", games already lost at that point.

Unknown. I’m way out of my comfort zone with the complexity of this.

yep, im the same, grasping some of it, but bowing to my Sec teams superior knowledge in this field, im just helping them spread the workload, cos im nice like that (and im whoring myself to Global Corp Sec team for a new role with them from home :P)

 

im sick of going into an office and dealing with retarded end losers directly as well as server/site adm work (which i love!), im getting too old to enjoy juggling multiple roles at a single site, and my boss is an inept A-hole :p but thats another story!

 

might even post a soapbox article on todays events re: NTP settings and synching issues, i was without words when i discovered what had been setup. put it this way, in general Default GPO holds every policy estate wide....no just no!! /faceplant! thats a starter for 10 in what i discovered!

Nah mate, tried reinstalling and no dice. no new version atm either. meantime ive set it all up in bios manually, inc fan tuning.

 

Ive emailed Asus support to notify them of my findings.

Strange that AsusFanControlService is still running in the background so at least I got that :-) I just cant get the GUI to open :-(
