    Intel recently announced a new group of vulnerabilities called Microarchitectural Data Sampling (MDS) which affects multiple device models with Intel CPU's.

    We have released a new BIOS update (RazerUpdater_v1.1.1.1_BIOSv0102) for the following Blade 15 Advanced (2019) models :
    • RZ09-03017
    • RZ09-03018
    Please visit this link to download the instructions on how to obtain the BIOS update and how to install it for the above two models.

    For other Blade models, we are working on the BIOS updates and will release them in coming weeks.

    Please contact our Customer Advocacy team at if you have any further queries.

    The support is really nice... I do wonder what the performance impact will be though. Maybe you should mention it so that people can decide to have higher performance bearing some risk depending on their usage?

    It's some nasty stuff happening with the bios problem, glad that you could come up with some fixes.

    Another day, another vulnerability for Intel. Maybe AMD lacks in performance because they arent corner cutting like Intel.

    For a long time have a big issue with their cpu architecture first spectrum now new security holes. If nothing change i dont see intel have good coustmer reputation and new clients.

    Hi Razer Team,
    I have the RZ09-0288 model, and i'm not sure if I need to update my bios as well, or it is only the 2 models mentioned above.

    Thanks in advance
