Seems Intel has a tool you can download available to check for Vulnerability. "some" older CPUs may not be affected. Looks like the newer the CPU the more likely you are vulnerable. Flight sim sites are all over this as performance with the CPU is paramount to running them well, any hit to CPU speeds is a big deal to the serious gamer/simmer.

Im getting ready to build a new desktop and the CPU I bought IS affected. Core I7 7700K. The one I am using is NOT according to the diagnostic tool.. Core I5 2500K.
