    Intel Skylake/Kaby Lake processors: broken hyper-threading and CPU microcode update

    Details on the problem
    https://lists.debian.org/debian-deve.../msg00308.html

    BIOS tweaking tool to update microcode
    http://www.win-raid.com/t154f16-Tool...-quot-UBU.html

    Any one tried to fix it yet by updating their CPU microcode using above tool?

    Will there be a BIOS update for Z170 boards ?

    I have settled on this temporary software patch solution for now
    http://www.overclock.net/t/1633419/h...ake-and-others

    This allows me to use any microcode update that intel releases even when bios is not updated
    It would be nicer to have a more permanent solution to patching the code into the uefi, but this is great too!
    The current (BA) microcode seems to have solved small micro freezes my machine had at times during games. Running smooth at the moment.
