Looks like mostly just Haswell igpus that get their gaming and 2d java rendering hurt. Not enough to make Netflix stutter, unless maybe you are using a 2013-2014 bay trail atom. Cherry trail atoms are fine, they're gen 8.
I have one of those bay trail atoms in a tablet. Maybe my daughter will complain if her Minecraft gets slow. Not going to bother me, I'll tell her to watch her youtube on that and leave the gaming for her Haswell desktop.
But my office pc that I actually mitigate and even has Malwarebytes on it has the king of gen 7.5: the iris 5200 igpu in a 4980hq. But I don't game on it so still don't care. Maybe some with old 2014 MacBook pros with that same chip are going to have their gaming impacted if Apple even updates such old stuff idk.
As for laptops with combo intel/NVidia graphics, the intel part will still be more than fast enough for web browsing and media playback and you will only notice if you choose the "Integrated graphics" option in the NVidia control panel for gaming. Default is "Auto-select" I.E. igpu for light and dgpu for 3d.
Quick Sync on Haswell might be slower. I really stopped transcoding back when my internet got fast enough to stream video though. I'm sure some people still do it to save storage space? Maybe watch the same thing over and over and save on data? Or to stay disconnected from the internet? Maybe there is some reason if you upload a lot to youtube?
