In addition to the Microsoft's 3 January Patch, I have modified my motherboard's BIOS to include the latest CPU microcode.
So far, Intel has released microcode update for Haswell, Broadwell, Skylake, Kaby Lake, Coffee Lake.

Spectre is more like a PR spin for Intel to distract the dumb pple.
Just like how certain groups like to drum up small issues to distract the blame.
The crazy bug is Meltdown not Spectre, NO SANE Processor should leak privileged kernel mode memory to userspace.
Branch prediction need to check address spaces before doing attempting speculative execution and returning the data to the cpu cache.
Meltdown turn Intel Processor to the days where there is zero memory protection

Correct me if I am wrong.


Spectre Variant 1: Bounds Check Bypass

>> Solution: Need a new designed CPU


Spectre Variant 2: Branch Target Injection

>> Solution: KB4056892 and new BIOS/DIY

Spectre Variant 1: Software fix (low performance impact), no need for new CPU.
Spectre Variant 2: Software fix plus CPU microcode update (For those CPUs older than Haswell, you are out of luck for now).
Meltdown: Software workaround (performance impact can be high on certain types of workload), AMD CPUs not affected so no performance impact for AMD.

Looking at the list, I guess ASUS 8-series and 9-series motherboards can say goodbye to BIOS updates for this issue.

If this list is set in stone, my next motherboard will not be ASUS.

I guess from your sig that you're running Broadwell, but are you getting WHEA errors after the microcode update like these guys on Haswell?

Good news for Intel. There will be a wave of pc/server replacement due to the performance penalty.

No WHEA error, but my processor is multiplier locked so I can't overclock at all.

Some reported errors with the new Haswell microcode even at stock; good to know that you're error free!

Intel CEO has inside intel for being inside intel and sold of 24 Million worth of stock in november.

Google has informed Intel months before it's CEO decided to get rid of part of his shares. And finally the bug came to light and intel's stock prices plummet...

Intel is as shady as ever. This is basically insider trading and highly illegal.

On the other hand, Microsoft patch has been pushed out. Intel need to push out a firmware update to fix the issue completely. There seem to be no performance hit on games according to recent Hardware Unboxed youtube video testing the latest patch on Intel's i7-8700K.
The problem is that Intel CEO play by the rule (in fact exploit on its loophole) and hence isnt guilty of Insider trading. He did wait till 90 days before selling his stock and that is why Intel has been tight tipped about it till now lol.

Now many people believe that PR. Even other company released statement and result on tests, still not as strong as Intel one.
