Got the OS update because in reality that's all that's needed.

Not yet.

Haven't updated to the Fall Creator's Update either, the one that introduces GPU monitoring in the task manager.

It's such a s***show right now

Don't worry, the first round of microcode updates were defective for some CPU series. I thought my software engineering job was dumb sometimes but at least I'm not an Intel engineer lol

I know very little about the issue, so I never bothered (yet). January is a busy month for me.

Will Windows 7 also suffer from the issue? I'm at work, so I barely have time to look at the links. ;)

May not be a "real" HM, but it does look fun.

Yes for the OS.

Asus hasn't made an update for the BIOS on my mobo yet.

OS is updated. There is a BIOS updated available for my board (ASUS Z170-A), but I haven't downloaded or applied it yet.

Probably should, but at the same rate, if something goes horribly wrong it would suck balls. Evidently this board also supports updating the BIOS via internet from within the BIOS' interface itself too.

Does anyone know what update for Windows 8.1 patches it? Because I don't think anything has come down for my rig yet. Maybe it's finally too old? ;.;

Windows 7 is supposedly getting hit harder by this performancewise than the new OSes. Something about the way the newer OSes have already changed the way certain functions work. Evidently Win7 now has to have similar changes and you'll notice the loss of performance much more readily because of that.

For Win7 it's part of the Monthly Rollup. I think Win8 is probably the same.
