Meltdown patch and DAW performance

Seems like this could massively impact DAW performance. I literally JUST bought a new i9 7900x for a custom PC build. I have not opened the box. Should I return it and wait for the next generation?

Updated this morning on a Windows 7 Pro machine. I cannot notice any hit to performance in Nuendo 8.1 with a project laden with high I/O activity. It may be there but it must be a subtle change in performance. I am hearing lots of similar claims about Reaper, as these users are typically the ones that like to live on the bleeding edge and began updating last night.
