    Before I made my previous post, I right clicked the update tool and choose "run as administrator" in my M8H.
    The tool only gives me 0s in everything, if I run it without "run as admin".

    I've also measured ~10% cpu hit here in BF1, for now I'll continue to quote 6% to 10% slowdown (intel conservative numbers for client systems in last generation cpus)....

    Interesting to know that you measured 20+% cpu performace drop in multithread benchs, I think that's a more realistic number than the 10% performance hit that intel published for recent cpus.
