    It isn't very often we get a Bios update 3 weeks apart. Something must have been important.

    Can we assume you have already installed the update?

    I suppose since it is not yet showing up for download it has not actually been released. Surely, if this was a beta bios, you would have stated such.

    It was there as I downloaded it then it disappeared off the site now its back
    I haven't yet installed in case it was a beta one . However it doesn't state its a Beta One.

    The update finally showed on the US site and installed without issues, so far.

    Thanks

    Is it still microcode 50?

    Also looks like it includes a firmware update for the onboard thunderbolts, I wonder if that improves speed or what?

    Yes a bios update so quick after another is unusual.

    I think the reason why it came out so quick is this:

    Could it perhaps be the fix for Spectre v2? If so, did anyone run some benchmarks to check what the performance hit on the CPU is?

    I asked JJ about the Intel security issue & he said he will find out and get back to me..

    Im curious about the thunderbolt firmware update, how are we supposed to perform the firmware update? I opened the thunderbolt control center but theres nothing there although the wording is confusing it sounds like they are talking about the add-on TB card but then says for onboard TB headers so IDK (translated from china talk I suppose).

    Supports ThunderboltEX 4 card FW update tool for models equipped with an onboard TBT header.

    I don't think it's a fw update but actually allowing a tool to update the thunderboltEX 4 card fw.
