I see this info but I'm not entirely sure what it means of if an update is required.

I agree, I don't understand why I'm offered this update on PC's with an AMD CPU and AMD GPU.
At least now i know I'm not the only one offered this update for an AMD PC.

I haven't installed any of these, I'll wait a few days to see how things play out.
So I bit the bullet and installed this update. It seems that it has not caused any problems. The following files were downloaded:

Code:
C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download\eef88f57184083f23a6818eed0a8600b\amd64_microsoft-windows-m..update-genuineintel_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7601.18848_none_1ac9921ec901a2ca\mcupdate_GenuineIntel.dll

Might you want do a search for your AMD CPU Microcode and see if it match your actual one. Might be listed somewhere in some dedicated forums .

The article ID won't do any harm to your system, this .dll file already exist, saw you have the 2010 update too. It won't trigger unless the processor is listed.

Mine reads 11 for Microcode. My BIOS is current & there will never be another BIOS update for this machine. According to what NoN wrote on the first page regarding CPU Microcode sounds like maybe this update = KB3064209 should not be ignored. But as another suggested perhaps I'll wait a couple weeks.

Intel have gives their official Processor Microcode Data File (microcode-20150121.tgz) back in January 21, 2015.

to be updated by manufacturers with a Linux distribution.

Might all the newest Bios produced have that microcode update after January 2015.

@Callender,

On my machine does exist the mcupdate_AuthenticAMD.dll, is dated from July 2009. Could you have a newer version than me?

Looks there are probs with AMD: mcupdate_AuthenticAMD.dll any newer versions? WARNING...

But why is it offered on a machine with an AMD processor? I still can't make sence of it but a search for anything Intel related reveals this directory:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\InstallShield\Professional\RunTime\11\50\Intel32

with the following files - all unsigned:

June 2015 microcode update for Intel processors in Windows-sigcheckgui.jpg

Maybe it could be that I previously installed software with a faulty complier?
