Second, I think you are misunderstanding what Intel is saying about releasing the microcode 01/09/2018. You are taking it as releasing it to venders, however I think what they mean is releasing microcode updates for their own produced boards. All other vendors already have the microcode and are working on their own bios updates.
That bios wasn't there this morning when I responded to Mega, him and I will have to do the update again....
Can't the bios still isn't listed for the Maximus X Hero.
They are probably loading them to the servers now.
I am thinking I will secure erase and re-install Windows tomorrow and see if there is a off chance that something might just be screwed durring the bios update process and load setup defaults + Secure Erase + Re-install might not see a drastic drop in IO performance.
