Windows 10 Meltdown/Spectre Patch Performance Impact Assessment

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III

Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War III is a game that gets very CPU limited at low core/thread counts, with minimum framerates decreasing by a third when moving to our system's dual-core, quad-thread configuration. 

Pre-patch and post-patch performance were almost identical when testing both patches at each core count, though it must be noted that the performance difference was remarkably consistent between the dual-core setups when comparing each run. Even so, the performance difference is only around 3%, which isn't a lot to complain about.

"we must preface this with the fact that AMD systems will not be affected in the same way as an Intel-based system by this update, because AMD CPU architectures are vulnerable to Meltdown".
I think you mean invulnerable, right?
Nice to see the performance hit for the average user is minimal.Quote

Fixed and fixed.

Yeah, I am very happy to know that the performance hit is minimal for most standard users. Only slightly annoying that so much time was spend testing it.Quote
