I have MS Win 10 Pro 64-bit, running on an Intel Skylake Core i7-6700K 4.0-4.2GHz LGA1151 processor, and have read this Security article at BC (Microsoft Partners with Intel to Deliver CPU Microcode Fixes via Windows Updates).
Consequently, if possible, I would like to install the KB4090007 update in order to mitigate the Spectre Variant 2 vulnerability (CVE 2017-5715 [Branch Target Injection]).
I already have mitigation for the Meltdown (CVE-2017-5754) and Spectre Variant 1 (CVE-2017-5753) vulnerabilities, and use the InSpectre vulnerabilities check tool for reference.
My motherboard is an ASRock Z170 EXTREME7+ LGA1151 ATX, and unfortunately, it does not look like the vendor will provide any BIOS/UEFI updates any time soon.
The Microsoft update article points out: "Consult with your device manufacturer’s and Intel’s websites regarding their microcode recommendation for your device before applying this update to your device."
As such, I would like to be certain of the compatibility between the said update and my CPU before I apply the former so as to not wreck my system.
And hence, my question is;
Does KB4090007 support the Intel Skylake Core i7-6700K 4.0-4.2GHz LGA1151 CPU?
Thank you very much in advance!
