You can also have a great excuse to have your history clear on browser closing

I would appreciate it if the banks I deal with were mitigated or went with Epyc though. Seems like most of my information is getting out there due to other guys.

rdr09 Saw this in another forum.

At this point they should not use any of the affected even if they are free.

You sound like an anti-vaxx mom.

RynoW lol, I bought a 9900KS to replace my P0 9900k to get the hardware mitigations for MDS inherent to the R0 stepping. Now, the day before it's delivered, they announce that an exploit that affects R0, which Intel has known about before they disclosed MDS.

Before I return it, what is the performance impact of disabling TSX?

skupples so i assume this will get added to my inspectre tool for disabling all this perf. killing nonsense that doesn't affect my in-home gaming computer in the slightest?
