NUC6i3SYH BIOS 0065 returns?

I installed BIOS 0065 when it was released early January, then it was pulled.

safe to say the reposted version is the same with no need to update?

release notes dated Jan 3rd.

No! You will definitely want to reinstall this BIOS. It provides updated microcode to address the SpectreB vulnerability.

I would recommend that you use the Recovery process to do this reinstall.

Hope this helps,

The recently posted "SY0065 .bio" appears to be the same file as the January posted SY0065.bio

I also compared the binaries - all the same as in January. I actually returned back to 0063 from this version because NUC became slower and started heating much more. Thus I have serious doubts about this "upgrade". Another thing that page https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000026620/mini-pcs.html Intel-SA-00088 for Intel® NUC, Intel® Compute Stick, and Intel®... has no indication the issue was resolved

Oh, I see the update on https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000026620/mini-pcs.html Intel-SA-00088 for Intel® NUC, Intel® Compute Stick, and Intel®... and 0065 or later is recommended. Now I am confused as well. Hope, Intel will explain this culprit...

still nothing on the newer BIOS. the graphics drivers they posted March 5th are for Kaby Lake 7th gen graphics, not 6th gen, hope they do not post the wrong BIOS when it comes. :-)
