Does anybody have any idea of the impact the Intel hardware bug (Meltdown) mitigation (Kernel Page Table Isolation) patch has on Ardour performace ?
I guess Ardour needs to constantly make kernel calls to read / write the sound card and disk and these calls will be slower on Intel chips because of the KPTI patch in current kernels. Is that so ?
I guess I could always disconnect from internet and disable KPTI with the boot option: pti=off
AMD is going to get a huge boost in sales because of this Intel bug. Those Ryzen and Epyc processor suddenly seem much more desirable
