  1. For those who haven't been following the recent Intel security debacle, here is a short, summarised summary: Intel screwed up with security on all CPUs it made in the past 20 years, due to a base architecture flaw. Security patch was released for affected CPUs, which fixes the security flaw. Security patch massively downgrades performance. Security patch affects all syscalls. nVidia 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 nVidia GPUs will have performance downgrade alongside with Intel CPUs if they're used together on patched systems. There will be no performance downgrade only if nVidia GPUs are paired with Ryzen CPUs. Performance downgrade is anywhere from 30% to 61%, based on benchmarks on systems with the security vulnerability patch. 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. Since World of Warships heavily relies on CPU calculations, there is almost a guaranteed framerate drop for anyone using an Intel CPU once you've installed the security vulnerability patch, and even more so for anyone using a Intel CPU + nVidia GPU combo due to the syscall issue, including myself. If you choose to not install the security vulnerability patch, you are putting yourself at risk, as the vulnerability allows level 0 access through the CPU. This means that hackers can directly write to your BIOS.
