    A little bit. However 0200004D microcode was the lastest production refer to SA-00115-00161 vulnerable guidance here.

    the 02000043 which ASUS used was out of date. For more information see page 17 of the pdf file above

    Hi, I am kind of a rookie with this stiff. Still on 1301. These kinds of things freak me out a little bit haha.

    Is there a noticeable difference between 1301 and this 1503?

    I am on a RE6 and 7980xe.

    Thanks a lot

    With BIOS 1503, I get a 35% decrease in performance in CPU-Z compared to BIOS 1004. Interesting...

    Look at that! This is with BIOS 1503 modified with the 2B microcode

    0% decrease. And a slight gain in single threaded performance. That looks good.
    Cinbench R15 score is also similar to BIOS 1004.

    0200002B performance is solid however we'll risk from all vulnerables. We must choose between maximum performance with all vulnerables affects or minimum performance hit but safe from all vulnerables issues. I choose 0200004D for the best. @Soupirelle beware your coins wallet

    Someone tested the difference in cpu performance between microcode ending 43 and 4D?

    I'll upgrade security when the SpecDown & Co. mess will be over! Intel created a bounty program for people to report security issues, there has been a lot, and there still will be a lot in the next few months (possibly years?). Patching and patching and patching, and patching again over patches, is not the right solution, the right solution is to buy a secure properly designed CPU. We're in a mess for sure, I'll wait until the storm has passed.
