But i can't find information about my Lenovo Y50-70. Does anybody has further information?
Do we will see an upgrade for our devices?
Thanks in advanced

This cannot be true, since Y50-70 (at least mine) uses Intel i7-4710HQ CPU, which is definitely affected by those vulnerabilities.
Also, not affected ones are clearly stated as "Not affected", but Y50-70 is just missing from the list.

This is a reply to someone I gave with a different model, but in a similar situation:
Does that help answer your question?

I don't have any specific insight into Intel's communications to Lenovo or other computer makers, but from Intel's public communications, I'm not sure if even they know what they will and will not be patching. It's entirely possible that Intel is still making those decisions internally, and has yet to communicate them to the computer makers. So, it may actually be a case of Intel not having decided where the cut off will be for what does and does not get an update. And if they haven't decided that internally, they probably don't have anything yet to communicate to their partners.
The best suggestion I have right now is to keep checking the LEN-18282 advisory, as that's where Lenovo is making all of their information available.

I do not have any particular insight into how Lenovo decides to release updated firmware, but the last update of https://support.lenovo.com/uu/en/solutions/len-18282 contained some, so it seems clear they are still working on getting firmware updates out to customers.
