Apple have an ARM ”architecture license” which let them design there own core from the ground up using ARMs ISA (instructuction set). That said, their design is still affected.

Anyways, its a design flaw, and I shall not have to sacrifice any milligram of performance because of Intel's dumb engineers (or engineer, since there is not much performance diffrence between Haswell and Coffe Lake, all is done is a die shrink and overclock, which anyone can do, or almost)

There are a lot of benchmarks now that shows negligible (or error margin even) difference in common usage (excel sheets, browsing, gaming) except on 4k read. So, unless your work is based around in a lot of I/O querys, you wont see a difference.

Just look at the ARM list: all the affected models are Out of Order designs.
Its not necessary to be an ARM core, and thats why the AX from Apple were affected too.
Android will slow down 30% while IOS will be60% for their updates and meltdown nice one.
option 1. these hackers really exist and they broke governments Zero Day acces to all devices which we all know is real
option 2. its a fake news and virus has been made by corporations agenda and will be uploaded by sowtfare developers on some devices to show it really exist to force people and companies to buy new devices.
you don't pay attn, 05 Jan 2018you want to choose? yet you go with apple? Are you crazy? i use iphone to test them out a few weeks when they come out ( i work in cellphone industry for a carrier at business level )
All i ment by my comment is Apple should give option to choose like all the others chip maker.
If i dont do anything that need big security on my device i want to keep my speed.
Same with that features they implimented in iOS that reduce cpu speed that so shaddy tactics.
AnonD-696746, 05 Jan 2018S8 ( both snapdragon and exynos ) are Arm based so affected as well sorry to break your bubble. According to ARM the exynos model should not be affected, which uses cortex a53. The sd835 variant is affected because it uses cortex a73.

Dont pull an apple feature on me.
I want to choose.
and i prefere speed.

Apple is creating this issue as a excuse to the lawsuit their facing against they're so called islow feature.
Simon, 05 Jan 2018Wrong. In terms of AMD CPUs, they are only affected by Spectre - the least hazardous one. Look... moreFor normal users at home that 30% slower will never happen in games or office or w/e .. so relax.
