    Thinking of upgrading due to spectre bug

    Hi

    I can't remeber if its sectre or meltdown that needs the bios update for motherboard all I know is that my z97 from gigabyte will not be getting the update :/

    Is it worth upgrading just for this? My current system has a xeon E3-1231V3 equivalent to an haswel i7

    my system is fast enough from my needs but I am wondering now whether it is worth upgrading since I won't be getting a bios update.

    I'm not entirely sure if the answer is obvious but I would say if you are doing something like crypto or perhaps online banking where your browsers are saving the passwords or whatever then - Yep.
