Intel fucked up with security.
Security patch was released.
Security patch massively downgrades performance.
Security patch affects all syscalls.
nGreddia GPUs heavily rely on syscalls because they don't have their own integrated pipeline to do this, while Radeon has it since GCN 1.1 and up.
Basically all noVideo GayPoos will have performance downgrade alongside with Intel CPUs if they'll be combo'ed on patched systems.
There will be no performance downgrade only if GayForce will be paired with Zen CPUs.
Performance downgrade is anywhere from 30% to 61%. Yes. Really.
Intel just now cancelled future gen of CPUs.
Brian Krzhanich sold a lot of stock and ran away before Intel's shares started falling hard.

When stock finds out that Intel's fuck up also affects Nvidia's products...the shitstorm will be massive, considering that right now Nvidia's stock hovers at 200$ per share. This is way too funny, because AMD has low prices per share, so if they lose something - the lose small by percentage. If nVidia loses even just a 1% now, it'll be hundreds of thousands.

I already told you - nGreedia GayPoos will be affected if combined with Inturd CPoos after """""patch""""", AMD is not affected in any way whatsoever on any of sides. If there will be performance drops, it will be on Inturd's side and on noVideo's as it doesn't have internal syscall module. AMD is absolutely problem-free platform now. In other words - best combo is AMD CPU with AMD GPU.

>> No.64128422

Apparently most Intel CPUs have a hardware bug that may allow userspace to probe kernel memory by exploiting the fact the CPU is executing instructions speculatively before it even knows they're allowed. On AMD's implementation this attempt fails earlier, but on Intel it proceeds far enough to at least interact with the CPU cache, allowing userspace code to exploit cache timing to figure out the kernel's "randomized" memory layout and maybe open the door to further unpublished exploits.

The only way to reliably stop this is to clear the kernel's memory mapping from the page tables when entering userspace execution (and restoring them when needed). This adds overhead to context changes, e.g. on calling the kernel or handling hardware interrupts.

Worst case (~30% slowdown) seems to be code that does tons of small I/O requests expecting that most of them would hit the I/O cache and complete pretty much instantly. The extra overhead really shows there.

It's absolutely secure, literally 0 flaws. Very structure of Zen architecture doesn't allow such inane holes in security. It's literally flawless. Unlike pooducts of those blue FUCKWITs. And as for Radeons - internal syscall module was in them since GCN 1.1, making AMD the only actual smart guy on the market.

It does and it will if you'll be on "Inturd + noVideo" combo after the patch. I will also affect you on CPU side if you'll be on "Inturd CPU + Radeon" combo. It can also potentially affect you on GPU side if you'll be making a "Zen CPU + GayForce" combo. Basically the only 100% safe option is going AMD CPU + Radeon GPU combination. Every other option is compromised.

No, it can not. It's an issue with Intel's CPUs. Not with AMD's. Intel + nVidia is just hit harder than Intel + AMD because nVidia is more reliant on the features that the patch will slow down.

>No, it can not.
We still don't know 100% sure, as """""(((patch)))""""" directly affects syscalls and GayForce cards don't have internal syscall module, relying only on external draws from OS. So, potentially, this still might gimp noVideo the fuck out even if Inturd CPU is not present. The only side that's not going to be affected any at any given time is AMD's side of hardware, but nGreedia's GayPoos may still be affected potentially as they don't have internal measures against syscall gimpage. Radeons had internal syscall module as far back as GCN 1.1 at the very least (probably even farther than that), while GayForce does not even today. So it won't matter if it's AMD CPU there or not, as crippling patch is being applied to OS and not hardware, and noVideo's GayPoo will be requesting syscalls from OS.

>Meltdown wasn't the only problem uncovered by the researchers, however. They detailed a related issue dubbed Spectre, which they believe is harder to address than Meltdown and for which there aren't yet patches available. As noted in a whitepaper, which contains the full technical details, Spectre attacks induce a victim application to carry out the speculative execution "that would not occur during correct program execution and which leak the victim’s confidential information via a side channel to the adversary." Worryingly, it's not just Intel systems that are affected, but computers running AMD and ARM too, the researchers claimed. That would amount to not millions, but billions of machines.

Why do you lie on the Internet about things you have no clue about?

The "lack of scheduler" on noVidya cards refers to lack of dynamic instruction scheduling, which does not imply that it works "in conjunction" with the CPU in some way to massage the dynamic instruction stream, it only means that the shader compiler does more work to schedule instructions carefully *when compiling* the shaders. Once compiled, they're off the CPU's hands. And neither compiling nor running the shaders have anything with syscalls to do.

What you have to remmeber if you are someone who is not a programmer or an EE is that intel has made a fuck ton of mistakes like this. I've heard about like one or two every single year for the last 10 years.

The media hypes it up but it is really not such a serious thing. Or at least it is really not such an unusual thing.

If it were a piece of software you could simply apply a patch. But since it's hardware some people are stuck with the hardware and are maybe so dumb that they don't realize it's happened to them.

Another thing you can keep in mind is that some of the 12 year olds at defcon can just stick a teeny usb boi into your computer and fuck your shit from their rooted cellphones. Hardware has never been secure and never will be. If someone has physical access to the machine it's over, in theory. In practice they might not have the skills to hack you, but if they do and they have physical access nothing can stop them but bad luck.

If you have Intel CPU and you have """""Patched""""" OS - yes. Very bad. Performance loss will be anywhere from 30% to 67%. If you have AMD CPU, then you may be not affected at all, or affected only on GPU side, it's not very clear yet if Nvidia will have a performance drop due to syscalls if there is a AMD CPU combined with it, but what is known for 100% sure is that "AMD CPU + AMD GPU" combo the only one that's not being affected at all. We still need a confirmation for "AMD CPU + Nvidia GPU" combination, so as of this very moment it's basically Schrodinger's Cat kind of a situation with that one. Intel is 100% compromised and fucked, so is Intel + Nvidia, and AMD CPU + Nvidia is MIGHT be POTENTIALLY compromised on GPU's side. AMD CPU + AMD GPU, however, is 100% clean, flawless.

Syscalls are directly and very heavily affected by the "patch".
Nvidia cards don't have internal/integrated syscall module even nowadays, so they still do it externally and thus potentially might be directly affected by this massive performance degradation, making an "Intel poocessor + noVideo GayPoo" the worst hardware combination EVER (up to 67% performance loss).
Radeons, on the other hand, had internal/integrated syscall module on their board pretty much since GCN 1.1 times, and AMD Zen CPUs are completely invulnerable to VT flaw or any other potential similar external attacks, so this makes an "AMD processor + AMD video card" combination the most secure and absolutely perfect solution nowadays.

Either way, there's still a slim chance that nGreedia's GayPoos could be completely unaffected IF combined with AMD's GLORIOUS Zen CPUs, but that's not 100% certain as of right now, so...we'll just have to wait and see.

AMD GPUs are legit normalfag shit useless for anything that isn't AAA garbage and Mantle flopped. Direct X 12 / Vulcan features aren't available and all performance gain is placebo based on AMD shilling money to the developer to cater towards their hardware.

CPU-wise the performance gain with Intel resulted in the exploit (not a bug). Disabling the exploit negates the immediate performance gain, and switching to AMD offers placebo at best.

Speculative execution killed OoO.
If your system relies on a bunch of system calls, you are fucked if you proceed to patch the Meltdown bug.
Whilst Spectre vulerabilities have no practical fix

Am i right? If i'm right this is the apocalypse.

>> No.64143154

Spectre 1 is OS external attack, Spectre 2 and Meltdown are ring 0 internal attacks. Only patch is responsible for performance downgrade and it directly affects syscalls. Only Intel can't be fixed due to it's very structure that's monolithic as fuck, it's basically bare naked all the time. AMD doesn't have any of the said problems, as Zen is modular in structure (no single ring 0) and has SEV which makes it absolutely invulnerable to any and all attacks on ring 0, while Radeons have internal syscall modules and thus both Zen and Radeons don't get affected by performance drops & syscall issues. Intel is fucked all over, literally bukkakek'd, while nVidia's cards are compromised too because they don't have internal syscall modules and rely on OS for that.

Basically what this means is that you can go four routes:

1. Don't install patch and be openly naked to attacks from all over, but at least you won't lose performance.

Install patch and lose anywhere from 30 to 67% in performance if you're on Intel CPU with nVidia GPU.

Use AMD CPU with AMD GPU and be 100% safe on all fronts, with no performance downgrades.

Use AMD CPU and nVidia GPU, and pray that you won't get fucked over by the patch on nVidia's side of things.

Variants 1 and 2 are shit, variant 3 is the best, variant 4 is potentially good, but you might be compromised eventually with it. It's for you to decide how to be cucked over, or not cucked at all.

Nvidia isn't affected by any of this except from the performance that could potentially be lost due to the Intel problem but the same performance drops would also affect AMD.

No, as AMD completely secure and free of any performance drops on Radeon's side of things. If there will be a performance drop in a AMD + Nvidia system after the patch, trhat performance drop will be strictly only on Nvidia's side. AMD is not affected in any way whatsoever at all, neither the AMD CPU nor Radeon GPU.

>> No.64145347

>Provide me a single source
The mere fact that nVidia cards don't have internal syscall module (and Radeons had them since GCN 1.1) and they require syscalls from OS to work is not enough for you? Patch affects syscalls directly, hence if Nvidia cards can do syscalls only externally through OS this means that nVidia cards potentially can lose performance too just because they're doing these syscalls through OS and not internally. It's not rocket science, man.

How? This shit only affects CPUs you fucking brainlet anon can just slap 1080ti on a fucking ryzen and beat literally every fucking vega shit you could think of.
Stop shilling vega you don't need to run both CPU and GPU from the same manufacturer.

Ignore the retarded shill who keeps pushing vega shit. There's nothing wrong with using both nvidia and amd on the same system. It's pure faggotry and muh brand loyalty instead of going for the best product for the money.
There's nothing to regret from having a ryzen CPU with a 10 series from nvidia or even waiting for ryzen+ and the volta gaming card.

From 30% to 67%. Basically treat 30% drop as a "Intel CPU only" scenario and 67% drop as "Intel CPU paired with nVidia card" scenario. You can either be cucked partially, or being cucked twice over, depending on your setup...or be completely free off of any cuckolding if you're using an AMD CPU paired with AMD GPU. It all depends on what you personally prefer to be: a cuck, a partial cuck, or not a cuck.

Are you fucking retarded?

How on earth could this affect Nvidia on an AMD CPU system?

As all the AMD fanboys in this thread are all too keen to point out, Zen & Co. aren't affected by Meltdown (the vulnerability which requires the performance reducing patches), and thus there will be no change to AMD+Nvidia systems.

Why would you say it's a slim chance unless you're just using your emotions as a likelihood gauge?

That post is fucking retarded also. Let's break it down for you:

Meltdown increases syscall overhead, and meltdown is only on Intel, while AMD CPUs are unaffected. Also, AMD GPUs do all the processing that would be negatively affected natively in hardware where the patch won't touch it.


Intel CPU + Nvidia GPU: Affected
Intel CPU + AMD GPU: Unaffected
AMD CPU + AMD GPU: Unaffected
AMD CPU + Nvidia GPU: Unaffected

How hard is that to understand?

The only way to somehow get a performance degradation on AMD CPU + Nvidia GPU setups is if the Windows patch forces aggressive cache wiping on AMD CPUs as well as Intel ones, even though it's not needed at all, as this guy points out:


... And if they DO do that, then we're back to square one because both brands of CPUs are going to be fucked over, even if technically it doesn't need to be the case for AMD.

Summary: Fucking retarded people and shills galore on 4chan, and especially /g/, who would've thunk it.

>> No.64146259

Again - it's literally all in the fact that nVidia cards don't do syscalls internally, POTENTIALLY making them susceptible to patch's performance decrease as that said performance decrease directly affects syscalls. It's only in the difference between how GTX and Radeon do syscalls.

Again - I NEVER stated that it's 100% confirmed nVidia cards will have performance drops due to this. I said they MIGHT have them POTENTIALLY as it's STILL was NOT 100% confirmed that they WON'T! But stupid retarded autistic buttmad noVideotic shillers immediately jumped the gun and began shitposting with those retardations of theirs on me. Fuck off, all of greenassed pieces of shit, I say.

>> No.64146285

You're so fucking clueless and retarded, I hope it hurts you.

>> No.64146317


Again: Only Intel needs this patch. The patch is what makes syscalls expensive.

AMD does not need the patch. Therefore syscalls on Nvidia GPUs will continue as normal (no change).

If AMD CPUs get some sort of patch anyway, then their performance will degrade anyway. So you no longer get off-scot free by picking AMD, you just get fucked over as much as Intel.

Woah boy, you sure must be autistic if you really can't put one and one together in a social context like this. Let me string it together for you:

>Are you an idiot? Nobody said anything about Meltdown or Spectre here, you stupid fagshit.
>Performance decreases before of a PATCH, not because of a malware.

Meltdown is the reason why the performance decreasing patch is REQUIRED. They're directly relevant because otherwise the patch wouldn't exist ... To spell it out so that even you can understand:

'The patch that fixes meltdown increases syscall overhead [...]'.

>Wrong. Intel will be affected, because PATCH DECREASES PERFORMANCE, YOU DUMB FUCK

Oh, I see. We're degrading to allcaps like children are we? Okay, I'll stoop to your level so you can perhaps understand a little:


(Sorry, sometimes I assume that the people I'm talking to aren't posting out of special needs classrooms, and that they understand the nuances of the topic).

>It's confirmed SO FAR to not be affected ONLY on AMD's side. We DON'T know YET if nVidia's side in this is affected by THE PATCH or NOT

What the fuck is 'Nvidia's side' ???

Does Nvidia produce x86 CPUs?

Nvidia's fucking 'side' is that their scheduler model (software vs. hardware) gets fucked performance-wise if you implement this patch, a patch for Intel CPUs. So what part of 'Nvidia's side' could possibly be relevant in an AMD system where this patch isn't required? Just don't fucking install the patch if its default is to install on an AMD system *because you don't need it you fucking retards*.


>NOWHERE was it already 100% confirmed to be TRUE or UNTRUE. WE. DON'T. KNOW. YET.
