Updated by Andy Fiddaman 2 months ago

I've booted these bits on all of the CPUs I have access to. Only one of those actually got a microcode update from this though, a Xeon E5 v3.

I can't exhaustively test here, we generally have to trust Intel's QA process and having these updates is generally better than not.
