The new "patch" slows things down because it has to transmit all of your traffic to the CIA/NSA/Lizards

A noob question, is this fix entirely at the OS level or does it also need a motherboard BIOS update?

Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

GOD BLESS YOU.

I think the answer is a microcode update can be either/or, yes?

I'm gonna assume my few year old desktop board might be new enough to get a new BIOS update but my old laptop won't (although it is AMD so might be less affected anyway).

TBH I reckon this is a big con to keep the economy growing, as things stood 5 year old hardware was fine for 99% of things, by slowing things down with this patch it's going to incentivise lots of people to replace hardware that they'd had likely stuck with for a few more years?
