    All microcode were buggy and pulled due to issues. I highly recommend to revert to BA/BE uCode.

    Here is the zip file with Ryzen uCodes, I didn't try it so anyone can test if its working correctly or not using HWINFO Summary window.
    Note: Ryzen ucodes aren't tested so make sure you have image backup of Windows before proceeding.

    No offense, but I'm not about to play about with a microcode that could make my CPU non-operational and void my warranty in the process.
    Besides, AMD being affected by these security issues are minor in comparison to Intel and easily addressed with OS security patches which don't really need microcode updates... at the very least, Ryzern should be much less susceptible as well considering one needs actual access to the CPU in question by working from the computer itself.

    It doesn't void warranty at all, it doesn't mess with BIOS at all, the vmware ucode updater just applies the ucode at windows startup. If you observe performance issues, click on uninstall.bat and everything is removed.
