My computer is  an much older AMD Athlon X2-250, 3.0ghz dual core, 02-2012
Windows 10 Pro (15063.850)

I just manually patched my system w/ the security only update from Microsoft. 
Used the Pass Mark CPU test... 

Before patch 1626, 1323 after patch or an 18.6% loss in speed.

Looking for a better test utility for Linux, but on my tested Linux boxen, doesn't seem to be any change.... But I'm using sysbench. Probably not the best utility in this case.
