Microsoft plans to increase the performance of Windows 10. The latest cumulative update for October 2018 Update includes the so-called Retpoline developed by Google. This solution, which was created for the second variant of Specter. Thanks to Reptoline it will be possible to increase the efficiency of the windows.
It is worth to start with what Specter was. This is one of the two threats that was loud at the beginning of 2018. However, the introduced patches have made the processor performance in Windows may have been reduced, depending on the process, from around 5% to 30%. Reptoline is a software solution that Google has developed and allows partial recovery of lost performance.
Microsoft began to implement Reptoline as early as last year. The last cumulative update for Windows 10 October 2018 Update, which was made available at the beginning of the month, activates this solution on selected devices. We read in the official list of changes that productivity can be increased in this way.
With the release of Windows 10 19H1, which is another major update for “windows 10”, Reptoline will already be enabled by default. What productivity gain can you expect? An example is the Office application, which should run about 25% faster on devices with Intel Broadwell processors.
If you are still at the planning stage of switching to Windows 10, remember that new windows in stores are available in two versions.
