    My understanding is that it's good to go, as far as Intel is concerned.
    That being said, MOBO manufacturers probably want to do their own testing after incorporating the new microcode into their BIOSs - especially after what happened with the first microcode patch in January, and the "higher than expected reboots"...

    Anyway, I would expect updated BIOSes to start rolling out before the end of the month.
    A resolution to this issue is long overdue already.

    Question ¿¿¿sabertooth z97 mark 1 update???

    Does anyone know if ASUS is going to launch a BIOS update or if Microsoft will do it for the SABERTOOTH Z97 MARK 1 motherboard? Already Intel released his patch for Haswell but nothing that is reflected in the downloads section. when could it be available?

    Looking at the Intel document, I see that they are showing the update in production for the Rampage V Extreme, with the Haswell Server E, EP, EP4S CPUID#306F2.

    I hope that ASUS understands that there are a lot of enthusiasts that have chosen ASUS hardware based on criteria including BIOS/UEFI patches that enhance or fix outstanding issues.

    Personally, I have built two systems on that motherboard, but have assembled nearly a dozen more flavors for myself and fellow enthusiasts. I personally put over USD$8000 based on that motherboard and CPU into my last pair of systems, not including the video cards or other peripherals.

    I really hope ASUS is monitoring these forums and understands that there are other motherboard manufacturers that have issued or are planning to issue UEFI updates to deal with the Spectre issue on the same CPU/Platform, and I will be looking to them for my own systems, those I build, and those I recommend going forwards.

    I also have a pair of Rampage II Extreme boards that will probably never receive patches, which at least at this point is due to Intel not issuing microcode. All in all, a very dissatisfying experience.

    ASUS - greatest aftersale support ever!

    It's interesting to see that ASUS doesn't react and/or publishes updates regarding this security flaws.

    My cheap ass Asrock boards got an update (J3455-ITX), my GA-B150N Wifi board got an update, my Thinkpad X250 got an update and till end of march my ancient X220 will also receive one. Intel published updates way back to the core2 generation cpus so with some tinkering I can update my T400 too.

    But on the other hand my ASUS X99-A and my X555LD still lacks any news or updates. But this really helps me in the future because I'll never buy again any ASUS product what means no more ASUS bords, laptops or routers.

    I doubt Asus monitors these forums. I certainly never see them responding to questions or other posts to add any value to the forums they created. I'm also planning to switch away from Asus. Paid a premium for ROG hardware but the brand has not lived up to the hype. The microcode update for my Kaby Lake CPU has been released by Intel since ~Jan and Asus has been showing a presumably dev/internal BIOS version for it (that doesn't exist in production on their website) for the past ~2 months. Understand that they wanted it to be well tested before they release it, but why have so many other manufacturers been able to do it without a problem? Why pay a premium for hardware that has bad support?

    There are a few ASUS employees that post on this forum but they have other job duties. That is not the purpose of this forum. It's a place for ROG customers to communicate with each other, not intended as a place for ASUS & customers to communicate.

    After more than 2 months no news or updates for your ROG/HEDT X99 platform. Pretty busy employees? Otherwise I honestly doubt that ASUS employees really care about their customers at all. But hey we all learned about ASUS good reputation regarding customer support. Congratulations.

    No one would complain if ASUS would spread some news and keeps us informed. Intel has updated almost all chips of the last decade so it's time to deliver. But that's okay so ASROCK/EVGA/GIGABYTE/MSI... shut up and take my money.

    The fixes were somewhat delayed because of stability concerns over Intel's microcode. However, production microcode has been available from Intel for some time now. It is quite damning that the above articles are the only official public communication we have had from Asus. No follow-up information, no revised release dates, and no production BIOS updates.

    Asus are already under "special measures" for not releasing router updates in a timely manner and not keeping their customers informed about security risks.

    Come Asus, it's time to produce the goods.
