Despite their tremendous commercial success, AMD’s Ryzen CPUs are far from being bug-free. The red team tried to fix as many problems as possible with the latest 3000-series, but some issues are still persisting, especially those related to security breaches facilitate through the Spectre and Meltdown inherent flaws. The good news is that AMD has doubled its efforts to squash these sorts of bugs and will soon release a new Ryzen microcode that is said to bring more than 100 fixes and improvements, as revealed by MSI marketing director Eric Van Beurden in a youtube video.

The new microcode will be delivered through an upcoming BIOS update that will be offered not only by MSI, but by all the other mobo manufactureres, as well. AMD is going to roll out the new instruction set by next week, and motherboard manufacturers will most likely release updated BIOS versions after finetuning and testing for stability issues within the next few weeks. German publication Planet 3DNow! suspects that Van Beurden is referring to the rumored AGESA 1.0.0.4 BIOS version that should rectify some stability issues with the new Ryzen 3000 CPUs.

No exact details on the upcoming fixes and improvements were unveiled, and it is yet unclear if the new microcode is going to address any problems with the older Ryzen 2000 and 1000-series. In any case, the BIOS updates should be released in early November, with possible beta versions releasing earlier.
