X4 950 CPU and Spectre vulnerability

Hi, I have a Gigabyte A320M-HD2 motherboard and an AMD X4 950 CPU. I have updated to the most recent bios F23d. I was assured by Gigabyte that this would resolve Spectre vulnerability. However I find that I am still open to a spectre problem. After using GRC's inspectre program to check it tells me that the CPU does not have the microcode to protect against spectre.

My question is this. Has AMD actually sent the microcode for this X4 950 CPUr to motherboard manufacturers or not. Perhaps they have only fixed it for Ryzen CPUs. Any ideas would be welcome.

 

Regards Steve
