No not at all. Although idk if I have the patch. Was it in the most recent windows update? If so then yes I have it.

PSO2 actually runs better, because it f***s with how GameGuard operates, preventing it from screwing the game as hard as it's designed to.
I've noticed that OBS Studio is having more trouble with desktop composition turned off. It's basically unusable most of the time, but I'm not sure that's the meltdown patch, or if that's just OBS studio being a piece of s*** lately.
Loading seems a little less smooth in most games, especially games that stream assets.

Anything that has 3p fps or better is fine with me -mucloud

I have no clue what I'm talking about, but that's not going to stop me from responding


On a serious note.
I lost 0.008% performance according to 3DMark benchmarks after the meltdown patch.
Such a huuuuuuuuuge loss. What ever will I do.

Nothing unusual to report here with my 8300 at 4.2ghz.
OK so your saying it tried to use a blocked port, got blocked, and switched to an unblocked port while waiting for the user to respond? - Why I love Gfaqs.

OBS Studio runs no differently for me.
I will rule the world, and find that truly good cup of coffee.

It does yield worse performance, even moreso on Windows 7

How the hell is win 10 giving them like 70 fps more in battlefront? That whole thing looks wonky..
