Will you fix the security hole 'Spectre' in the upcoming Ryzen 2 processors?

The 'Spectre' security hole isn't fixable without a performance penalty. I wanted to buy a Ryzen / Threadripper but as long as I have a performance penalty I won't.

Will you fix the security hole 'Spectre' in the upcoming Ryzen 2 processors on the hardware side?

Zen II has already been taped out, so major architectural changes are unlikely. They are also lobbying to be immune to the Intel specific vulnerability patch which slows speeds. And on the topic of slowing speeds, according to reputable third party review sites (not Intel or Youtube), it only affects storage intensive applications, so while servers and databases will face a massive decrease in productivity, home and power users won't.
