    Asus - what is the ETA for Intel production Coffee Lake 0x84 microcode?

    Intel went production on it mod-week. What is the ETA for BIOS updates with this microcode?

    Could be weeks, could be longer. Depends if it passes our validation.

    I find it disappointing to have not even an estimate, when the bios for the Maximus VII is out already.
    Still, thank you for answering, it's better than nothing.

    My problem is I am sure this is holding back other BIOS fixes and improvements, like fixing offset in adaptive mode. If it is known it will take some time, we should have had another BIOS sans the 0x84 microcode already.

    Difficult to estimate, hence the reply. The only thing certain: if there's a fix, we will update the BIOS when time permits.

    I don't understand the "if"... are you saying that the new microcode Intel released is not a fix? Or were you making a general statement?

    Hmm, maybe it's the other way around? Baking in the new microcode should be easy (hence the release for older boards already), but if they release a new bios they want it to have fixes / feautres they were already working on?
