Stop spreading misinformation. Go look at the newest round of post-patch benchmarks. The only hit observed was to NVME SSD's, specifically 4k reads.

you don't understand what he was talking about.
there is a designing security flaw for all Intel cpu for last decades.
To patch the security hole with software , all OS would lose 30% or more performance ...

He didn't say anything about the OS. He said that about Intel CPU's.

I thought it was supposedly 5-30% and not more than 30% unless you meant in very specific applications?

Intel CPU's are supposed to take a hit but in normal benchmarks, it doesn't show to be the case. From what I read, the solution is page table isolation which would affect virtual memory. Synthetic benchmarks should show this but real world stuff not so much.

Older stuff though may see a bigger hit. This laptop with the newest 8k series proc will be fine.

It's really TBD. But you are right.

Look on the bright side, pc prices will drop and you can probably score some major deals!

Good call. Now with the correct information you can purchase a laptop void of a CPU... Solid plan.
