    I am pretty pissed off at Intel now and wishing I would have got a Ryzen processor instead of an Intel one. Performance for Intel CPUs is getting worse every day.

    @Brink: I assume that 1809 doesn't show up in the preceding list because it's been bundled with a recent CU (KB4494441, if memory serves). At least that's my belief as to why there's no 1809 above. Please confirm or correct. Thanks, as always, for your heroic efforts in helping us keep up with the mountain of information surrounding Win10.

    Hello Ed,

    It appears to include them from the release notes below:

    Cumulative Update KB4494441 Windows 10 v1809 Build 17763.503 - May 14

    Improvements and fixes

    This update includes quality improvements. Key changes include:

    • Enables “Retpoline” by default if Spectre Variant 2 (CVE-2017-5715) is enabled. Make sure previous OS protections against the Spectre Variant 2 vulnerability are enabled using the registry settings described in the Windows Client and Windows Server articles. (These registry settings are enabled by default for Windows Client OS editions, but disabled by default for Windows Server OS editions). For more information about “Retpoline”, see Mitigating Spectre variant 2 with Retpoline on Windows.
    • Provides protections against a new subclass of speculative execution side-channel vulnerabilities, known as Microarchitectural Data Sampling, for 64-Bit (x64) versions of Windows (CVE-2018-11091, CVE-2018-12126, CVE-2018-12127, CVE-2018-12130). Use the registry settings as described in the Windows Client and Windows Server articles. (These registry settings are enabled by default for Windows Client OS editions and Windows Server OS editions).

    Just to confirm - those on v1809 who have installed this week's update KB4494441 are fine?

    Funny how every body sees specter and meltdown as major issues neglecting that per microsoft windows design all softwares and apps are allowed to spy on all processes running via what is called Anchors part of the dot net frame work apis , the issue isn't really in the processor , it's the o.s that allows everything to happen versus other more secured o.ses that run everything in isolated sandboxes .

    To note , microsoft is slowly acknowledging that after leaving us for decades vulnerable by adopting native isolated virtual machine like environments as an equivalent to sandboxing on other platforms starting windows 10 version 1903 which might reduce these threats for those who are able to utilize this new feature correctly yet still as per design even virtual machines still have access to hardware and will have more access with introduction of dx12 that is withdrawing itself from being a middle man to leaving the door open to hardware direct access allowing them to capture whatever data being processed :)

    It's just an assumption they will be covered for this based on the KB4494441 release notes, but time will tell.
