Z70-80 Running slower now since Windows 10 Update including Meltdown & Spectre patches.

I bought a gaming class system for quick response and speed for everyday applications. Now with the fixes to the Intel I7 micro code its noticably slower both starting and responding to common site and applications I used every day over and over. 

 

The I7 is no longer what it was and its not my fault nor much I can do. This was an issue for at least 5 generations of CPU's and Intel never fixed it in their designs and now we have to live with a work around patch that a major impact to performance.

Windows 10 Update for March 2018 installed now and it improved after that set of updated. Maybe the newly released Intel fixes are being pushed out in it. Hard to know whats in the Cumulative Update package releases monthly.

But its better, not the same as originally.
