Meltdown/Spectre Performance hit?

Starting a performance centric thread regarding performance drops after patching as I'm finding some of the underplayed statements by AMD/Intel to be inaccurate, and although this is a camera forum, we have some tech savvy folks here.

First up, my 2014 Macbook Pro 15" running the latest 10.13, no observable performance drop yet on any of my normal things.

I am hearing, anecdotally from my counterparts, Windows 7 is taking a beating though with double digit performance hits; anyone care to confirm/deny? This isn't a PC vs Mac thread btw as the patches impact anything with an x86 processor, more a what's your hardware, what's your software, and how bad is it.
