Precision R7610 BIOS A17: Intel Microcode 0x710?

Release notes for R7610 A17 BIOS state that the Meltdown and Spectre-related microcode has been updated.

In Windows Server PowerShell I can see that Meltdown and Spectre mitigations are not in A17 BIOS.

Intel microcode update that covers latest vulnerabilities is 0x714, but R7160 with dual E5-2665 Xeons loads 0x710 microcode, according to CPU-Z.

Could you re-release BIOS or supply step-by-step how to slip-stream new microcode into A17?
