Google says its security patches not slowing down systems

Although some vendors have downplayed the potential risk from these flaws, they are of concern because of the inherent complexity to resolve the deficiencies and the significant number of devices that have the flaw. One of the issues with mitigating the danger these vulnerabilities pose is that they could result in serious performance degradation.

We encourage our industry partners to continue to support these practices.

"We believe the performance impact of these updates is highly workload-dependent", Krzanich said yesterday. The newly reported processor flaws are characterized using the technical jargon of speculative execution. Many chip and operating system vendors, including Microsoft, Google, Intel, AMD, among others, are working aggressively to address these issues as soon as feasible.

When investing geniuses David and Tom Gardner have a stock tip, it can pay to listen.

The letter comes as users of systems with Broadwell and Haswell chips report problems with increased reboots. Apple, Canonical and Microsoft are among the companies that have already issued fixes.

Finally, keep in mind we're still in the early days of dealing with these fundamentally different security problems.

But, if you're wondering just how much slower will your PC become after Meltdown and Spectre patches, we are here with the answers. Browsers can be used to exploit these vulnerabilities. He addressed the matter promising a fix for the chip security flaws. The comment came from Terry Myerson, head of the Windows and Devices group, who urged server users to "balance the security versus performance trade-off for your environment".

As Google describes this, "With Retpoline, we could protect our infrastructure at compile-time, with no source-code modifications".

However, AMD added that it believed that "AMD's processor architectures make it difficult to exploit Variant 2".

Other news announced during Krzanich's keynote include the launch of Intel Studios for advanced, 3D video productions; support for Intel-powered virtual reality broadcasts during the coming Olympic Winter Games; and autonomous driving technology partnerships with BMW, Nissan, Volkswagen, SAIC Motor, NavInfo, and Ferrari North America. Intel's stock has taken a big hit since the announcement, in spite of the fact these issues affect almost all modern chips.

So what does that mean for customers of Spanning, a leading SaaS backup provider?

Watching the order in which the plates land lets observers infer the data, he told Reuters during an interview on Wednesday at the tech industry's CES conference in Las Vegas.
