from amd themselves, Predictive Store Forwarding (PSF) is the culprit.
shutdown process is provided but no word on performance impact.
We´ve seen lists of affected cpu´s but where´s the lists of patched/fixed motherboards/cpu´s?
Is there an existing list for end-users to find out which motherboards/cpu´s have been patched/updated against spectre/meltdown??? Like from 1155 till the current motherboards/cpu´s for instance?
Here is a really good program to see if you are vulnerable to Spectre or Meltdown. It also has the ability to turn off the fixes if you are having severe slowdowns. Also if you click on the ghost in the upper left corner you can get more tech information about...
There are tons of articles about Meltdown/Spectre issue and about upcoming solutions. As far I understand, it's a CPU (by design) flaw, still it seems "everyone" is working on solution: CPU makers, MB makers, OS makers, Browser makers, etc. And here my confusion starts:
