What about the Ivy Bridge CPUs?
When will you give Microcode to Vendors like Asus, ASRock and all the others?
You can't be serious to sell so vulnerable devices and then sit on your back thinking, they should buy new hardware to solve their Problem.
I tell you something, this was my last cpu i bought from INTEL if nothing happens, and i believe this in not only my mind!
Lenovo has added .20 ThinkPad series (Sandy Bridge) to list of future BIOS updates, so you can expect updates for Ivy Bridge as well.
I have two products from you guys:
Intel Desktop Board DZ77GA-70K - Mainboard
Intel Core i7-3770K - CPU
No BIOS updates have been released for my mainboard and no cpu updates have been released for the CPU on Windows x64 platform.
Can someone kindly explain why there is lack of support for your products as my Dell and HP gear all have had BIOS/Firmware updates released?
I will be switching to AMD next build if the updates for my setup have not been released.
Looking forward to your response.
I repeat: Intel committed to delivering the microcode and BIOS updates by the end of the month, no sooner. Any questions before then are premature.
Do you know this statement is true for all the Intel made Desktop Boards which have reached the End of Interactive Support i.e. DZ77RE-75K etc.
and have not seen any BIOS updates in years?
Intel has promised microcode updates for all affected processors by the end of the month. It is then up to the board manufacturer to deliver BIOS support for their boards. In the case of the Intel Desktop Board products affected, Intel will have to deliver the BIOS updates obviously.
I've a Intel PC with Desktop Mainboard DB75EN and CPU QuadCore Intel Core i5-3330, 3.00 GHz (Ivy Bridge) (buy in april 2013).
I have updated the BIOS to version ENB7510H.86A.0046 and Intel® Management Engine to version 126.96.36.19908 (version from 26.05.2017). When you want to update Intel® Management Engine (Intel ME) for Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities (e.g., Intel ME v.188.8.131.5202, recommended here: Intel® Product Security Center for 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ Processor Family) for Intel® Desktop Board DB75EN, the latest version of which is 184.108.40.20608 on your website Downloads for Intel® Desktop Board DB75EN?
I used Intel-SA-00086-GUI.exe and it says the system is vulnerable.
Thank you for understanding and best regards.
I don't have anything that definitively indicates this to be the case, but I would expect that, for boards that are affected by both INTEL-SA-00086 (i.e. ME, TXE and SPS Interface vulnerabilities) and INTEL-SA-00088 (i.e. Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities), the BIOS delivered will include both the ME firmware update and the microcode updates for all applicable processors.
Again, Intel has committed to delivering the updates for all affected processors by the end of the month. Any discussion before then regarding what is (or isn't) included is speculative and a waste of everyone's time. The bulk of those updates being seen for boards from 3rd-party manufacturers are for the very latest processors; support for the much older processors is, in most cases, still forthcoming. After the end of the month, if you think that there is something that Intel missed, we can have that discussion then (and we can be VERY LOUD about it!).
I hope this puts the discussion to bed (well, until the end of the month). IMHO, all of the speculation and whining and complaining that going on is thrashing both the ICS folks and the volunteers who are helping out here in the Intel Support Communities and is thus is slowing responsiveness to questions and reports of other issues. Let's do the right thing and table this discussion until the end of the month.
Any updates...Its past end of the month...???
You don't read the news? Intel had to recall the Spectre microcode updates due to instability issues on some processors. During the subsequent root-cause analysis, it was determined that the instabilities could affect any platform. This essentially reset all of their schedules. The latest information can be found here: Side Channel Attacks - Vulnerability Analysis, News, and Updates. There was also an announcement made today: Intel releases new Spectre microcode update for Skylake; other chips remain in beta | Ars Technica.
When a particular microcode package clears Beta, it will be released to board and system manufacturers. They will then, in turn, produce packages that will update their affected boards with the microcode package. Yopu should look to their support resource for information on when these packages will be available.
Intel's internal board and systems groups will need to to the same for their products. The following web pages have been established for announcing when update packages (which will typically take the form of BIOS release packages) will be made available:
There is currently not much information available in these pages; you will need to watch for updates.
I live in Australia this stuff does not get covered in the "news". Don't need to be arrogant buddie - its okay. Cheers for the update "news".
