AMD provides microcode patch support for processors belonging to AMD processor families 10h, 11h, 12h, 14h, 15h and 16h. This site targets Linux®, and Solaris based OS distributions.
If you are an end-user, AMD does not provide end-user support. Please refer to your operating system (OS) documentation for further details. The tools and patches mentioned on this page are usually delivered through your operating system package management or configuration utilities.
There is one single file (container file) containing all microcode patches for AMD families 10h - 14h processors. For AMD family 15h and 16h processors, there is a separate container file. Microcode patches are not incremental, therefore you only need to make sure you have the latest container file for your AMD processor family.
The container file(s) are part of a container file package which also provides release notes for all included microcode patches, a short README file, and install instructions.
See Download section below for download instructions.
