Yesterday, I informed you about a security design flaw in Intel's processor that required a new software update. According to initial reports, this fix would bring a performance hit on Intel's CPUs somewhere between 5-30%. Microsoft has released this security fix for Windows 10
so it's time to test some triple-A games under CPU-bound scenarios.
Looks like games generally won't be worst case scenario, but applications that switch to kernel mode a lot will be the most affected.
