    Yes there are no fast CPUs without hardware vulnerabilities;

    Someone could mass produce and sell an economical 4GHz 64 core non-speculative ARM CPU but there is no incentive as long as no one else does it. (cough cough Amazon)

See if you get a greater or lesser difference with and without mitigations on that kind of system. As we know from some recent high-profile reviews, Ubuntu and Fedora struggle mightily to provide a stable gnome desktop with wayland even without stress-testing them.
    Nicely made anti wayland trolling, but still trolling. Go 'way.

    I understand it's not affected by LVI?

    Are the mitigations fixed in this CPU and the software is applying unnecessary fixes to problems that no longer exist? I'm struggling to understand this point.

    If that's not the case, and Intel is still releasing CPUs in 2020 which have these vulnerabilities then I have absolutely no idea how they are getting away with this, or why anybody would buy such a product with such known defect in it.

    Said it before, I'll say it again: It's going to be a long, long time before I buy another Intel CPU.

    Phoronix: The Ongoing CPU Security Mitigation Impact On The Core i9 10900K Comet Lake

    At least for the workloads tested this round, when booting the new Intel Core i9 10900K "Comet Lake" processor with the software-controlled CPU security mitigations disabled, the overall performance was elevated by about 6% depending upon the workload. Here is a look at the out-of-the-box security mitigations for this new Intel desktop CPU against foregoing the default CPU security mitigations and running an unprotected configuration to see what the pre-Spectre performance looks like.
