You can also update your BIOS.

Nope, it should be in package provided by clear linux team via linux-firmware

Yes, I understand where it lives and how to make it, my question is why Intel not updating linux-firmware package for Clear Linux since microcode update is released by Intel 3 days ago and it’s 99% security/vulnerability patch for CPU ?

@Shtirlic The package was updated early this morning. We’ll have it in a release as soon as we can.
