It's KB4056892 for Win 10 and KB4056894 for Win 7 respectively. You could check your update history and see if it's in there already. I've got a 3570K and received that update for Win 7 already.

Today I just read that SSD IOPS are cut by half due to that update. That's massive. (for those who understand German: https://www.heise.de/newsticker/meld...r-3938747.html ; a Samsung 960 Pro went down to 105,986 read / 79,313 write from 197,525 / 185,620)

Also, AMD CPUs are indeed vulnerable to Branch Target Injection (Spectre variant 2). After all, Spectre hasn't been "fixed" yet. And it's up to the hardware guys to do that. I highly doubt I'll get a BIOS update for my board (GA Z77 D3H). The most recent one is dated 2014-01-07, just a tad more than 4 years now, and it's even beta and never got a release version.

I really wonder how much impact this has on DCS. I didn't really do benchmarks, but yesterday after updating, I had 40-70fps in 1.5.8 where I was used to 70-120. But that also could be caused by the Harrier which is in early access after all.

Thanks for the info, looks like I have it.

Those updates cause a few incompatibilities, prepare to roll back if need to be.

It was released out of sequence as KB4056897, or as part of the monthly rollup KB4056894.

One interesting tool to check yours systems.
https://www.grc.com/inspectre.htm

Please read the page carefully and use on own risk, many anti-virus programs report it as malware.

Also, it is possible to update the CPU microcode under Windows with VMWare microcode update driver.
https://labs.vmware.com/flings/vmwar...-update-driver
Instructions are provided on the page.
Unfortunately, for old systems like mine (Sandy Bridge), there is still no microcode update from Intel.

My plan is to keep my system protected in default state and disable protections when flying.
