QuoteTwo critical vulnerabilities found in Intel chips can let an attacker steal data from the memory of running apps, such as data from password managers, browsers, emails, and photos and documents.
QuoteWill it have an impact on Intel CPU performance ? I don't know for sure but it looks possible.
Quote from: 3DGuruPreliminary conclusionGiven what I am currently seeing, desktop users and PC gamers should not be worried about significant performance drops. Most test results do show a negative effect on performance, but we're really talking in a realm of 2% differentials here. The file IO tests didn't worry me either, and we used the fastest consumer NVME SSD on the globe to be able to see a bigger effect when measured. We did see a bit of a drop off in 4K performance, mostly reads up-to 3%. That's the worst I have been able to find out of all tests. Other than that you are looking at 1% maybe 2% differentials that could even be tagged as your typical statistical anomalies.
