    Recent Linux microcode release for Haswell CPUs

    chris2553

      According to https://newsroom.intel.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/11/2018/03/microcode-update-guidance.pdf Intel have, in the last few days, released production microcode to address Spectre and Meltdown on the Haswell CPUs. The CPU in my laptop is Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4710MQ CPU @ 2.50GHz (family: 0x6, model: 0x3c, stepping: 0x3). I built my own Gnu/Linux system using Linux From Scratch, so I need to update the microcode myself - i.e. there won't be an automatic update from a distro vendor. Where do I find the microcode data file for this update, please? The latest version available from downloadcenter.intel.com is 20171117.
