    Can I update an AMD C50 CPU on a Toshiba C650D?

    It is running Windows 10 Home, but can be very slow. The AMD C50 runs at 1 GHz, the minimum speed for Windows 10, but the computer has an SSD HD and 4 GB RAM and I expected it to be a bit faster.

    Can I upgrade the CPU?

    What choices do I have for CPUs if I can upgrade?

    And yes, I have attempted to contact Toshiba Support. They won't talk to me unless I pay their fee. And the Toshiba Community Forum does not seem to have a way to sign in and join the forum. The only option seems to be to sign in and I cannot as I have not
    joined the forum.

    Can I update an AMD C50 CPU on a ASUS A53U

    windows update downloads Intel update on an AMD cpu

    Windows 10: New Intel Microcode for Spectre V3a, V4 & L1TF Gets Released states:

    "Spectre Variant 4 ( white paper ) got
    discovered at Google's Project Zero. Like Specter Variant 1, this vulnerability can be plugged into customization in applications, with Specter V1's existing measures benefiting Specter V4 as well. However, to prevent the gap from being exploited through other
    means, Intel and Partners have decided to re-adjust the CPU microcode as well. It also contains countermeasures against variant 3a, which cost no performance. Variation 4 affects
    AMD, ARM, IBM and Intel."

    I am experiencing a performance hit in my video editing software. But THIS is why you received the update though you have an AMD cpu.

    Found this today -

    "Downloaded KB4465065 (Intel mitigation) on Ryzen?" Anybody else get this update that is supposed to be only installed for intel processors? "Important Install this update for the listed processors only." (Lists only intel CPUs) : Amd

    KB4465065: Intel microcode updates
    Important Install this update for the listed processors only.

    However comments in this article say

    - It's a microcode update, you have nothing to worry about.

    - Perhaps these mitigations are coded to NOT activate on an AMD CPU.

    - If this is a microcode update then this CAN NOT activate on an AMD processor and it wouldnt even work/allow it.

    Yes Spectre 4 affects AMD processors but this update was for listed Intel processors only.

    Why is it that we can find information online but Microsoft can't tell you anything or even reply to my support email????
