    It is possible to disable the fix without uninstalling the patch:


    REM disable the fix *
    reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contr ol\Session Manager\Memory Management" /v FeatureSettingsOverride /t REG_DWORD /d 3 /f
    reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contr ol\Session Manager\Memory Management" /v FeatureSettingsOverrideMask /t REG_DWORD /d 3 /f

    With the same drive(250 GB) my results are a bit different.

    Total Byte Written
    12.3 TB

    Read/Write - 546/355

    Read/Write - 85,998/75,889

    I don't have a pre-update reading but your low write numbers seem really off, possibly indicating something other than the patch being the problem? Yes, it's a before and after, but maybe something else changed?

    From this link, it looks like the Write function is where the big hit is at.


    New Drive:
    • Sequential Read: Max. 540 MB/s
    • Sequential Write: Max. 520 MB/s
    • 4KB Random Read (QD1): Max. 10,000 IOPS
    • 4KB Random Write(QD1): Max. 40,000 IOPS
    • 4KB Random Read (QD32):
      • Max. 98,000 IOPS (500GB/1TB)
      • Max. 97,000 IOPS (250GB)
      • Max. 94,000 IOPS (120GB)
    • 4KB Random Write(QD32):
      • Max. 90,000 IOPS (500GB/1TB)
      • Max. 88,000 IOPS (120GB/250GB)

    I wonder why my Write numbers are so much higher than yours. My drive is a boot drive and it's about 65/70% full. I wish I had some pre-update readings but didn't think to do any readings.

    Setting all the drive readings aside, I haven't noticed any sort of performance hit since the update was installed so the whole issue is a bit of a 'nothing-burger' for me anyway.

    This article says much of what the Softpedia article says plus an additional tidbit as to why the problem is occurring.

    I am running the AMD 1800x with the patch they released on Jan 4th I hadn't noticed any problems until today it rendered my Asus AI suite useless I uninstalled the update now it works again and I set the windows 10 not to install any updates for the next 30 days Freggin MS what a BS fix.

    ASUS released an AI Suite update that was supposed to address the breakage post-Microsoft update. I posted the link earlier in this thread.

    The AMD problems post-MS update pertain to older AMD processors.

    Edit: Actually, the link to the ASUS AI Suite update (https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthre...-Beta-Version-3-00-10-user-test-report-thread) is in the thread I posted about the MS Meltdown update

    Well i did another 2 benchmarks after freeing up some space.

    Test 1: 548/519/72788/57339

    Then another one after approximately the same amount of space was occupied again

    Test 2: 548/465/84848/57677

    Some performance loss in IOPS but not as drastic anymore. And thats even without updating to the latest Z170 bios 3703

    Nice, I'm running a Z170-A myself and haven't even thought about updating the BIOS since I built the box a year or so ago. It still runs fine so I figured I'd just leave it alone. I think I'm on 19xx.

    Same reasoning as me, think mine's even on the bios prior to 1907. 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it'. But this is an exception.

    I just checked and I'm on 1902, which I'm pretty sure it shipped with. When you say 'exception', do you mean you did update it to 3703, because of the patches? I thought those patches came down with an MS update?

    Not yet, but I will. The kb can only patch so much. For most effective patching a bios update is required

    I missed that and since I'm running a 6700K I should probably update it. Updating the BIOS makes me nervous though. I have done it on other machines and it's never failed, still, that old saying "if it ain't broke..."

    I have gone through the list at the Asus site and updating everything else that applied to my board, just never did the BIOS. I guess the time is now. :)

    I've never been a fan of updating the BIOS. With my older system it was a major headache because it required me to go back and re-tweak quiet a few settings to get things running properly. With the current Z170 board it's only a few changes and I'm back up and running. Nice to be able to update directly from the internet, as well, if I so wish.

    I'm running a 6700K, as well, in a ASUS Maximus VIII Extreme. I didn't notice any issues with hyper-threading before the 3504 BIOS but decided I'd rather just be on the safe side. I haven't run into any issues since then. That said, I'm not in a hurry to install the latest update. I'm going to let any issues with it shake out before I rush into anything.

    Seems like a wise way to go, one that I'll probably follow myself.

    ditto. I havent been running the latest bios and it can't hurt to wait a little longer, for all we know they'll push a new one in a couple days / weeks to address that AMT bug.
