Did anyone measure if there’s a performance hit after applying all your OS and BIOS updates for the meltdown / spectre vulnerabilities?
I read that especially for applications with a lot of system activity like disk I/O (samples, recording, sound libraries) there seems to be a significant hit after updates. I’ve seen a benchmark for image processing where there is a lot of saving andpaging going on I guess? It measured 20% less performance. I can only imagine it’s worse for audio and video editors as there’s even more I/O going on?
