As the title says, do I need to install the Bulldozer hot fixes on Windows 8 for my Piledriver CPU?

I don't think there are any hot fixes. That was just for Windows 7. Someone correct me if I'm wrong but the hotfixes were actually from Windows 8 code for Windows 7. So technically it's already applied in Windows 8.

The BD fix was to patch Win7 with the Win8 scheduler.

That being said, you should already have something much better than the Win7 patch, and have no need for it.

Are these still needed for Win 7 or have they already been added to windows 7 from windows update? I have a FX 8350 on the way and forgot all about these hotfixes.
