German publication Planet 3DNow! caught an interesting bit of information during a transmission of the "MSI Insider Show" on YouTube. Eric van Beurden, one of the show's moderators and Marketing Director at MSI, revealed that a new AMD microcode should arrive next month. It will reportedly bring over 100 different improvements for owners of AMD Ryzen CPUs, the site reported today.
It's still so bizarre to me that CPU firmware/microcode is now something that's so public and frequently discussed. We now live in a world where even our CPU's get patches and updates. When I first got my start in PCs (2004), no one cared at all about what AGESA or Microcode or Firmware version their Athlon 64 or Pentium 4 was running. It wasn't even a thing that'd be considered.
