Msi Z370 8700k spectre/meltdown bios

Since building my rig last april I've refrain myself for upgrading my bios to prevent spectre/meltdown performance hit. I'm now wondering if I could see a performance benefit since I seem to have the first version of the microcode update.

MSI Z370 Gaming Pro Carbon
Version
7B45vA3
Release Date
2017-12-25
File Size
7.15 MB

Description
- Update RST 15.9
- Improve memory compatibility.
- Update Intel Micro Code for security vulnerabilities.

*This is my currently installed bios. Here Inspectre information:

Spectre & Meltdown Vulnerability Status

System is Meltdown protected: NO!
System is Spectre protected: NO!
Microcode Update Available: YES

(full details below)

**Question: Will I see any performance benefit by upgrading to latest bios since it seem I've got on my the early patch?

***P.S.: NOT INTERESTED IN SECURITY OF MY SYSTEM IN ANY POSSIBLE WAY, ONLY LOOKING FOR MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE THX

How about you make benchmarks on your own, insert a new bios and rerun them? You can downgrade bios afterwards, if it'd hit performance.
