    So my Broadwell-y tablet is now a toaster?

      Dell published a bios update for the Venue 11 Pro 7140 with Core M 5Y10 on 9th of January with the Meltdown/Spectre MicroCode patches. Of course I did pre and after benchmarks of PcMark, Geekbench and CrystalDiskMark. So... PcMark shows a 12% loss, but the SSD test is a pure disaster of a 60% loss.

       

      Nice. A 60% loss ... 60%.

       

      Opening normal tasks like Chrome ect ends in much higher CPU loads of about 80% and lags, where it was all fast and smooth before the bios update.

       

      So my Core M tablet is now a toaster I guess?
