There are hardware security fixes. Current state of fixes as of Cascade Lake is that TAA is still there. They should have time to have that fixed as well but we will have to wait and see.That probably also means NO hardware security fixes. If there where any security fixes we could have seen some extra performance differences.
By integrating new protections into hardware, Intel advances security at the silicon level with OS-loadable microcode updates.
For some reason everyone expects security fixes in hardware to affect performance. They don't, that is the whole point - issues fixed in hardware means precisely that there is no performance difference.
