The Lenovo Support solutions article LEN-18282 lists some systems and the status of BIOS updates.  But there are many systems not listed.  I'm wondering about a BIOS update from my IdeaCentre K450 desktop.

After some heavy-handed moderation on another Lenovo forum, I'm going to ask here.

 

When will I see a BIOS update for my G50-45 laptop (type 80E3016QUS)?  It doesn't appear on any published list.

Is there a list of products out-of-support? I'm wondering if my W520 will get a BIOS update

I had a look and my x120e is not on the EOL list (the significantly different x100e is). At the same time, it is not on the list of systems being researched - though the x131e (AMD) is, which I believe is essentially the same system but with AMD E2-1800 vs. E-350 (the same CPU family and core, just 100Mhz faster, so probably it'll have similar microcode).

 

I'm hoping that the x120e will ultimately be included, as it was quite popular - perhaps even moreso than the x121e/x130e.

 

AMD systems may take a while, though, as they prioritized the Zen architecture - microcode for earlier CPUs isn't out yet, even on Linux. Intel, meanwhile, had to withdraw the new microcode for Haswell and Broadwell ("v3"/"v4" CPUs) because it caused crashes.
