    Interesting!

    I never realized that AMD & Intel microcode are both available.

    I just installed Intel microcode via Synaptic and it seems to be working fine...

    Code:
    vindsl@Zuul:~$ cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep 'model name' | cut -c 13-60
     Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.40GHz
     Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.40GHz
    
    vindsl@Zuul:~$ dmesg | grep microcode
    [    2.020696] microcode: CPU0 sig=0xf25, pf=0x4, revision=0x1b
    [    2.021259] microcode: CPU0 updated to revision 0x2b, date = 2004-08-11
    [    2.021278] microcode: CPU1 sig=0xf25, pf=0x4, revision=0x1b
    [    2.021578] microcode: CPU1 updated to revision 0x2b, date = 2004-08-11

    A couple of days ago, the amd-microcode was replaced by linux-firmware.

    Is the "coast clear", so to speak?

    I'd really like to upgrade to an 8-core AMD mobo...

    No need to shout...
    Isn't „it's“ more proper than „its“ in Your sentence...?
