    I think the update does it only for the seventh generation of the CPU. It is a strategy to encourage owners of such cpu to buy new PCs. If I can give you some advice, wait for the next generation to the octave as there will be huge changes.

    What about Asus ROG-GL502VT BIOS update? I can't seem to find it anywhere.

    Yes, I'm waiting for the GL502Vt bios update too. If Asus will not provide any update for this model, I will contact Amazon for a refund.

    Asus replied to me (in Italian):

    grazie per aver contattato il Supporto Help Desk
    in merito alla sua richiesta, la informiamo che il suo modello non verrà abbandonato, semplicemente il fix per la CPU arriva da Intel non da Asus, ovviamente appena Intel risolverà il bug sulle CPU di 6th Generazione verrà rilasciato un update del bios per le macchine coinvolte.
    Per ora Intel ha rilasciato il fix per le CPU di 7th e 8th Generazione (per la precisione il 21 Febbraio 2018).
    Deve fare riferimento come sempre al sito ufficiale, appena possibile l’update sarà rilasciato.

    Cogliamo l’occasione per porgere cordiali saluti

    Customer Service Asus
    Tel: 06.97626662
    Fax: 0245500703
    Web: www.asus.it




    You can translate it with google translate. In other words, Asus told me that GL502Vt will be updated as soon as the microcode for the 6th generation cpu will be released by Intel

    Hi everyone!
    What means TBC in BIOS update graph on asus.com? To be confirmed? I.e. microcode fix is not yet available?
    Or BIOS 306 for GL553 is that BIOS update fixing Spectre/Meltdown issues?

    OK, lets check.
    1) "Microsoft’s latest Windows 10 patch will address Spectre Variant 2 CPU flaw
    Microsoft now provides a new manual update for Windows 10 devices based on sixth-generation Intel processors. It addresses the Spectre Variant 2 flaw in these CPUs, which could give hackers access to sensitive information if they have direct contact with the device."
    Go through the link
    2) "KB4090007: Intel microcode updates
    Applies to: Windows 10 version 1709Windows Server, version 1709 (Datacenter, Standard)
    Summary
    Intel recently announced that they have completed their validations and started to release microcode for newer CPU platforms around Spectre Variant 2 (CVE 2017-5715 (“Branch Target Injection”))."
    Also in the end:
    "Consult with your device manufacturer’s and Intel’s websites regarding their microcode recommendation for your device before applying this update to your device."
    Clicking on "recently announced"
    3)"Latest Intel Security News: Updated Firmware Available for 6th, 7th and 8th Generation Intel Core Processors, Intel Xeon Scalable Processors and More
    The new microcode will be made available in most cases through OEM firmware updates."

    >through OEM firmware updates

    BIOS update needed so. If you check Windows Client Guidance for IT Pros to protect against speculative execution side-channel vulnerabilities, you will see:
    BTIHardwarePresent : True (Hardware support for branch target injection mitigation is present)
    BTIWindowsSupportPresent : True (Windows OS support for branch target injection mitigation is present)
    BTIWindowsSupportEnabled : False (Windows OS support for branch target injection mitigation is not enabled)
    BTIDisabledBySystemPolicy : False
    BTIDisabledByNoHardwareSupport : True (branch target injection mitigation has no hardware support - no microcide update from vendor)
    KVAShadowRequired : True
    KVAShadowWindowsSupportPresent : True
    KVAShadowWindowsSupportEnabled : True
    KVAShadowPcidEnabled : True

    Spectre and Meltdown Fix KB4090007, KB4091663 and KB4091664 *Intel Microcode Update for Windows 10 1709, 1703 and 1607
    In the German computer magazines is reported that this Microsoft patch fixes Spectre „complete“ for Skylake, Kaby Lake und Coffee Lake CPUs .
    Is still a BIOS update necessary?
    If you fix the system (Notebook) double, with the Windows Update and the BIOS, will the performance get even worse?
    did I understand this report correctly?
    Best regards Tom
