Intel released the performance test result of two-socket Intel Xeon Platinum 81xx processors on January 18:

https://newsroom.intel.com/news/firmware-updates-and-initial-performance-data-for-data-center-systems/

The performance test results for patches in major OSs are as follows: 
Microsoft: https://cloudblogs.microsoft.com/microsoftsecure/2018/01/09/understanding-the-performance-impact-of-spectre-and-meltdown-mitigations-on-windows-systems 
Red Hat: https://access.redhat.com/articles/3307751 
SUSE: https://www.suse.com/c/meltdown-spectre-performance/

After the Intel microcode patch is installed, the performance impact is closely related to the operating system and running services. Customers are advised to verify and assess the performance based on running services.
