this is the 2nd time you used "FUD", but storage bandwidth has definitely been reduced (especially in NVME drives). So while you disagree with him, instead of saying "FUD", link to another review that shows otherwise.So? Most of the benchmarks were in the +/- 3%.
And even that "worse performance" on storage related items is only related to prior Intel performance.
If you compare those storage related benchmarks between AMD and Intel. Intel is not showing any kind of serious deficit.
As much as some partisans like to use it as FUD against Intel, Specter/Meltdown is not a determinant in choosing between Intel/AMD.
I'm not even arguing the fact that normal PC users (non-enthusiasts) would see any real - world difference. But running things like F@H, I've noticed a small difference since I patched everything.
