    sweet. I dont know the difference - or can't tell rather.

    Using that tool from intel, it shows that my box is already patched...

    Still rocking my 3570k. Some weird goings on around patch day (games stalling on load, trouble getting back windows 10 start screen) but possibly not related. Everything seems to be rolling along smoothly now.

    I can't even tell if my BIOS update patched this problem. It was built on 25/12/17 but was only published on ASUS's website on 09/01/18.

    I've done some preliminary benchmarks and there's literally no performance difference at all (Sky Lake).

    Problem in patches for Spectre, Meltdown extends to newer Intel chips

    Hard for us to say without you telling us the version number and mobo?

    My one looks patched - ASUS Z170 AR bios version 3703:

    2018/01/12
    Z170-AR BIOS 3703
    Fixed SAMSUNG M.2 device issue.
    Fixed SanDisk M.2 device issue.
    Fixed AMD RADEON SSD device issue.
    Improved DRAM compatibility.
    Fixed SteelSeries keyboard issue.
    Updated Intel CPU microcode.

    I've had ONE recurring performance issue on a couple of titles and I don't know if it's related to Meltdown or Spectre. Certain titles appear to be FPS limiting themselves to 24 on launch. Alt-tabbing out and back in removes this cap. NFI what's going on - using a Kabylake 7700K.

    Nothing else of note to report. At first I actually thought my machine was more responsive following the Windows + Bios patches, so definitely can't say I've noticed any slow downs.

    Has anyone got an i7-930 and had it patched yet? I can't find any updates for it anywhere.

    It is first gen, it isn't even on their radar to patch as far as I've seen.

    yeah i figured as much, damn - wonder how badly vulnerable my media pc is now, it looked like it was really difficult to exploit using Spectre?

    I thought Microsoft was going to release a patch for our operating systems to solve the security issue?

    Do i actually have to update my bios too?

    And has the update been done for windows 7 yet?

  13. Post
    Yep it's been released for Win 10 and I'll assume for Win 7 as well. Yes you'll need to do bios as well but if its an older chipset good luck. Our current gen laptops(Toshiba) still haven't got a fix for this yet. Target date 2018/1E whatever that means.

    I got an i7 4770 with an Asus H97M-E

    And a i5 4670 with a Asus Z87-C

    Where can i find the updates for them?

    Edit---

    Never mind i checked the asus site for both mobo's and the updates aren't there for my motherboards.

    The windows 7 update from Microsoft caused reboots for Intel systems too!

    Christ, It's like Microsoft and Intel want all of us to upgrade.

    I really don't have the money for that.

    What's Windows 7?

  18. Smile
    I'm still using windows 7 because all my games work on it,

    I've seen reviews and stuff and about half my games won't go anymore if i go to windows 10.

    Really? They must be some pretty old stuff, like Diablo 1 or Warcraft 1 or Half Life 1 or Counter Strike 1.6 etc?
    In any case, won't they work by running them in backwards compatibility mode?

    I've got some older games on my steam list, but everything I tried made in the last 10 years works without issue


    Right click on the setup file of the game and select “Properties”.
    Select “Compatibility” Tab.
    Place a check mark next to“Run this program in Compatibility mode” and select operating system from the drop down list.
    Let the game install and then check thefunctionality.

    Other options includes emulators for old DOS games and if games really don't work in Compatibility mode, then you can just run a virtual machine

    Go Here which shows you most my games, I have a few on GoG as well but i can't show them, Apart from games like TA etc which I'm sure everyone has a copy.

    I thought Intel were still advising us to hold off on patching because they haven't sorted their shit

    the microcode updates are bad so yes hold off on those but hypervisor/os updates can still be applied
