I was having a look at the kernel options today, and saw the option to access the CPU microcode on intel CPU's. After having a little more of a look around, and discovering there is the ability to update this microcode, I was wondering if anyone has actually done it.
I downloaded the utility from here then installed it and updated. I cant tell any difference, and I actually dont know what changes it made.
I was just wondering if anyone could more enlighten me as to exactly where I could find out the changes made to the microcode.
I know what the microcode is, and that I will be updating the CPU's onboard instructions, but exactly what changes it is making is what I'd really like to know.
Cheers
