Lenovo: Why do you both 11.7 and 11.8 version of Intel Management Firmware?

2018-04-11, 2:39 AM

In the "Chipset" section at the Thinkpad X1 Yoga 2017/2:nd edition drivers page, both 11.7 and 11.8 versions of the Intel Management Engine are available.

 

As for me I will never use the AMT, however still I want to know which one is generally the best choice.

 

For me to be informed about which to choose, can you please tell me:

 

Why do you distribute two versions?

Hi thinkpaduser7!

 

Remember that this is users helping users here, moderated by volunteers like me. Although there is Lenovo presence, they don't patrol the entire community. They do help with some of the broader issues.

 

Per the README on the support page, the 11.7 update is software, and the 11.8 package is firmware. There is no new firmware in the 11.7 package.

I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!
