According to https://newsroom.intel.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/11/2018/04/microcode-update-guidance.pdf https://newsroom.intel.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/11/2018/04/microcode-update-guidance.pdf , the latest Production MCU Rev for Arrandale CPUID 20655 is 0x6.
I am using the latest version of the Linux Processor Microcode Data File (20180425) from https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27776?v=t https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27776?v=t
But it provides 0x4, not 0x6:
Linux Processor Microcode Data File Version:
microcode: microcode updated early to revision 0x4, date = 2013-06-28
microcode: sig=0x20655, pf=0x10, revision=0x4
microcode: Microcode Update Driver: v2.2.
Unfortunately, the BIOS will not be updated by the manufacturer, so I am relying entirely on this file.
My question is:
Is there going to be an update of the Linux Processor Microcode Data File containing rev 0x6 for CPUID 20655?
the latest revision is a security update.
I just want to know if it will be available in a future update of the Linux Processor Microcode Data File.
Thank you for your response, let me investigate the case, I will be posting back when as soon as I the information for you.
