    @Epifire: Intel knew about Meltdown more than half a year before it went public. And they probably also knew that fixing it in current chips would cause a performance drop. So, the chip they sold you that runs at Y speed now runs at Y-X speed because of the Meltdown workaround.

    The disclosure was quite harsh, because the vulnerabilities were rediscovered by independent researcher (from rare some clues in the public).
