Hi, I have the option to install AMD processor microcode firmware for AMD CPUs while using Linux Mint 18.1. The code is ' amd64-microcode version 2.20160316.1'. Can anyone tell me what this is and suggest whether I should install it or not?


I have an A8 7600 CPU and a MSI A68HM Grenade motherboard with BIOS 1.4, which I believe is the latest version.
