    Just curious, how well are you other Maximus X owners protected?

    The green system info in Inspectre

    This system's present situation:
    This 64-bit version of Windows has been updated for full awareness of both the Spectre and the Meltdown vulnerabilities. If the system's hardware (see below) has also been updated, this system will not be vulnerable to these attacks.


    This system's hardware has been updated with new features required to allow its operating system to protect against the Spectre vulnerabilities and/or to minimize their impact upon the system's performance. (Protection from the Meltdown vulnerability does not require BIOS or processor updates.)


    This system's Intel processor provides high-performance protection from the Meltdown vulnerability. A properly updated operating system will be able to provide protection without significant system slowdown.


    This system's Intel processor provides high-performance protection from the Meltdown vulnerability and this version of Windows is taking full advantage of those features to offer that protection without overly severe performance penalties.


    The system's registry is configured to enable both of the Spectre and Meltdown protections. Within the bounds of any limitations described above, Windows will work with the system's processor to prevent the exploitation of these vulnerabilities.

    New bios release today for the ROG MAXIMUS X HERO (WI-FI AC) but it doesn’t say what improvements they’ve made

    Think I’ll wait a few days to see some reviews on it first

    Are you running the Asus Aura software from the CD? Earlier versions really hogged the CPU.
    Nope, I have the latest Aura. So how are your guy's CPU's running? I still average 3700 sometimes up to 4400Mhz on the desktop!

    Mine was running at 4800 all the time but that was when I had the profile set to performance. I have since set it to balanced so it will gear down while idle. Just ran a couple of programs and mine goes from 4800 down to 3605mhz

    I think it is the new Intel Speedshift, the core and voltage stepping now tasked to the CPU rather than the OS. My understanding is that the CPU response time is much faster with this method, perhaps hence why the cores remain so high during desktop use...
