sysutils/intel-microcode-netbsd - The NetBSD Packages Collection

Firmware updates for Intel x86 processors

The microcode data file contains the latest microcode definitions for all
Intel processors. Intel releases microcode updates to correct processor
behavior as documented in the respective processor specification updates.
While the regular approach to getting this microcode update is via a BIOS
upgrade, Intel realizes that this can be an administrative hassle.
