How is this possible?

Facebook didn't have any slowdowns on muh machine so we're fine!!!

My concern is that if the Core 2 Duo is affected, and they don't backport the patch to El Capitan, a lot of old Macs are still going to be susceptible.
>>
>>64128708
Microsoft already fixed it in early November... https://twitter.com/aionescu/status/930412525111296000

Funny to see "muh gaymen" kids crying about losing performance when they already lost it 2 months ago and didn't notice.

The patch was on only a Windows 10 Preview Build you retard. All stable Windows are still unpatched.

Microsoft fixed it... half an hour ago, on live. Not sure when it was fixed on Insider, but it was on there prior.

Literally updating to Sierra as we speak because of this. I was pretty comfy with El Capitan and didn't feel the need to update until today.
>>
>>64128826

Apple has a fix for those older models too: throw them away and buy a new mac.
>>
>>64128708
HAHAHAHAHHAHAHHAAHAHHA

/g/ BTFO

Are you ever right about anything

>>64128708
Apple didn't even use those memory tables in the first place, that's why their OS is so slow
>>
>>64129736
>Install Linux already faggot
We have enough problems without that.

ITT: a bunch of assholes who drummed up this whole panic finding out that only one OS has a fix for it and it's Apple's.

How does it feel to be even more retarded than /pol/?

Simple, the patch is PCID aware which mitigates the overall performance impact quite a bit.
This is possible on any OS though and a function of the CPU. Check if your CPU can into PCID and wait for the patch-patch.

Seriously, it's like you guys can't even read.

apple shills back at it again

hahahahaha

And this is why I bought a Mac.

I wonder why nobody is commenting on this performance change. Here, we have a verifiable performance change caused by patching this vulnerability. Most importantly, it is data that was conducted by a user and not some corporate shill

tl;dr, it is about a 15% performance change.
>>
>>64128708
they obviously have better engineers. not even intel could patch theyre shit correctly

There's no additional slowdowns since Macbooks are already a joke and throttle so hard they're only using 10% of the CPU.
>>
>>64128708
Any news if this is being sent out to Sierra and older?
Because only High Sierra has been confirmed.

Isn't 10.13.2 like two months old?
>>
>>64138991
Yeah.
>>
>>64128770
They just had to undo their hardcoded 30% performance reduction and replace it with the intel fix.
>>
Does Mavericks get it?
>>
Well shit, it doesn't look like Apple's rolled out a patch yet for 10.12 and older.

I really don't want to have to update to High Sierra.

No shit sherlock, the difference is Steve has always been anti-big brother and implemented encryption and security measures very early on to prevent the government from even being able to force apple to hand data over. All they can do is hand over logs about icloud access or customer name/address pertaining to a phone/account.

Because they already use it daily to funnel everything you type to the NSA and are very familiar with how it works.

It's a shame they gutted the Pro. The Mac lines are all so fucked up now: the MacBook is thinner than the MacBook air, the MacBook costs the same as the more powerful MacBook pro that's almost the same thickness, and the iMac pro is faster than the Mac Pro. Apple send determined to alienate their core users and turn all of their laptops into Facebook machines

It's a shame really. I'm all for pushing boundaries and disrupting the status quo but the lack of any usable ports is retarded. WTF Apple?

You need to go with the calle sometimes.

Why users of inferior operating systems get so insecure with the superiority of Macs?
>>
>>64128708
Vendors knew about this vulnerability for at least 6 months already and patches were all supposed to land these days. Note how Apple, Microsoft, Linux and Xen all released their fixes already or within a week (the original scheduled unembargo date)
