yeah that was a speed typo, i used 3.26 before (as you can see in my photo) and had that weird bug. the one from the link i posted worked fine.

you did good to remove the other posts :)

Hey there! IDK where is correct place to ask is it possible to add a ES QDE8 CPU to the asus Z97-A bios? Now PC cant boot with this CPU... no monitor signal
http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/LGA1...0193.1491667335 this is the last ver for this mobo.

My cpu microcode is 0x00000FFFF0006

Maximus vi hero support this cpu. http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/LGA1...0193.1491667335

Did it use to boot in the past? What CPUID are we talking about?

#154 RE: CPU Microcode BIOS modding questions/problems by userdsp 09.04.2017 01:41

This CPU boot with Maximus hero vi witch have bricked bios chip and shutdown at 30min. I have new mobo Z97-A but he cant boot with this cpu. Cpu is "ES qde8" or here its the same cpu model http://valid.canardpc.com/0hnrh6
Im new with this forum. I was used a UBU tool, updated the z97-a microcodes and after that i was extract them as with MMTool... successfully flashed trough DOS but after CPU slap QDE8 still not working

The CPUID is 306C2 based on that validation picture. Both motherboards have microcodes for that CPUID so it should work. If it doesn't at Z97-A then the OEM might have implemented a measure to block ES/QS processors at the BIOS level. In that case, I doubt you can do anything to bypass it. Maybe google searching.

sure


Is there a link you can share that will shed more light on what exactly needed to be fixed on the Westmere microcode please? Curious to find out if anyone is having any Overclocking issues using this newer Intel Xeon Microcode. Thanks

Also, has anyone tried using this microcode within their Rampage III Extreme board using a Xeon X5650, or any other Westmere-EP for that matter? Curious what your results were. Thanks again.

asus p6t bios 1408 with last microcode version 1D (06c2) for xeon x5600 tested with my computer view screen with xeon x5650

Yeah, I've been using the 1D microcode for my X5650 as well for a while. But I wonder if we will get even a newer one soon which will mitigate the Intel security flaw which made the news yesterday. ;) By the way, the just released Windows 10 fix does not use the PCID optimization on my Westmere CPU even though Westmere introduced this feature. :( Let's hope that Intel will deal with older systems als well, but this all makes me more likely to switch back to AMD for my next build.

Unfortunately no microcode update will fix that fiasco.. only a software fix.. and AMD isn't in the clear either.

From what I've read so far on different mailing lists and articles, for some attack vectors a microcode update is even a prerequisite to be safe (but of course won't fix it by itself, it needs further OS fixes and in some cases even new software). There is even hectic development in GCC and LLVM going on, Firefox and Chrome as well. The official statement from AMD implied that only one Spectre attack vector could be used (Bounds Check Bypass) which can be resolved by software / OS updates to be made available by system vendors and manufacturers. Hence I think they are far better off from this than Intel. Only a negligible performance impact is expected. Intel on the other hand is exposed on a wider front. And only new unreleased CPUs can solve it adequatly...

... which is not a concern for me as a home user, but I guess AMD will claim some market share in business and enterprise systems this year.

For more performance numbers, this report from the Red Hat Performance Engineering team describes their research into the performance impact of various microcode and kernel patch combinations in a server environment: https://access.redhat.com/articles/3307751

You can easily skip to implement the "new" haswell binary
cpu000306c3_plat00000032_ver00000023_date20171120.bin
which is identical to
cpu306C3_plat32_ver00000023_2017-11-20_PRD_16535FE4.bin
and causes IRQ (CPU, WHEA) errors.
My 960 NVMe performance dropped from ~2.200MB/s to 1.500 and while an AS SSD benchmark you'll get massive stuttering and CPU erros in HWinfo.

I hope Intel manages to release some microcodes as far back as Westmere-EP at least. But even that far back seems inefficient of a response.

After a decade of near exclusively using Intel in my builds I think it's time once again to jump ship for a few years. I been wanting to support AMD somehow and the Ryzen refresh seems like the perfect opportunity to do just that. My 1st generation Intel Xeon system is too old anyway.

Let there be microcodes, lol

Microcode cpu00800F12 replaced cpu00800F10 & cpu00800F11 ? I cannot search the document cpuid AMD. (
And whether it is necessary to replace sections when changing a microcode: AmdVersionDxe, AmiAgesaDxe, AmdVersionPei, AmiAgesaPei, CpuPei, CpuSetAgesaPcd ?
