Default Windows Update lists AMD cpu update?

Advanced Micro Devices processor software update released on December 17 2002.

That is what is listed on the update site.. I remember playing with the device manager and where it lists the ACPI Uniprocessor PC.. Ever since Ive done that, it lists this update? What is this update about? Should I even bother installing it considering its AMD specific?

As far as I know, it's related to power consuption of the CPU so that you'll get better battery life if your using a laptop. *shrug*
