Has anyone tried out (and ideally even benchmarked) the new Intel microcode 3.20190514 update, that mitigates et al? (Details at lists.debian.org/debian-securi)

Is it as drastic as Apple's mitigation that disables SMT? That's way more of a performance penalty than I'm willing to pay for a purely theoretical vulnerability.
