I'm pretty sure all the Z390 BIOS's have the Spectre microcode patches etc. They came out after all that. The patches I apply help stability and can help with performance as well, though some microcode patches, like the Spectre ones, actually slowed down PCs. Microcode fixes after that helped fix the Spectre slowdown issues though.
