AMD issues microcode updates to motherboard manufacturers who in turn incorporate them into BIOS releases. Also, even according to security researches who uncovered the bug, it's very hard to exploit Spectre on AMD hardware, and even with Intel hardware this bug has not been exploited in the wild, which is saying a lot since this bug has been around for a very long time.

And no, it's not a chipset problem, it's a CPU problem.

Meltdown and Spectre is a general hardware bugs and all these updates is software so there is nothing u can do because bugs infect  everything has a prossecor even and an ''electronic pan''.Intel have problem with both bugs but AMD only Spectre.I think this will be helpful for you.

The updates will not come directly from AMD, but from system and OS providers, so users will need to check if they’ve received the updates from them.

if they not come from AMD, so from where they come from, MB manufacturer? the issue is not a BIOS related, its a Chipset problem and the fix´s should be on the chipset drivers that they provide like they do it before, but since now they only update them for the Ryzen and threadripper, the driver is pretty much useless.
