Hi all, Is there a way to get rid of the Meltdown/Spectre patches? I don't want to have any performance downgrades because of the fixes. All of my work is stored on a remote NAS. I'm a video editing guy and uses my PC's to render videos on Adobe Premiere Pro.

Any way to get rid of the patches would be apreciated!

Most of these patches come through the OS, so it depends on what OS you're running, but basically just disable your OSes updates and you won't get the patches. Also don't update firmware (most firmware is manual update anyway though so you probably don't need to worry about that) for your BIOS/Motherboard etc.
