So I've waited a couple days. Still no update provided by ASUS on the support page for this major hole. Anyone know the status?

What I'm reading here is that Intel has a major issue, Asus would be waiting on Intel to solve this issue and patch or firmware update etc what ever it will take to solve the issue. It doesn't seem like a Asus issue too me and that would be the reason were not hearing about it from Asus since they would need the firmware update from Intel to solve this issue?

There's an announcement from a few days ago:
https://www.asus.com/News/q5R9EixxfAqo1anZ

EDIT: appears the 752s have now been added. Please visit the link for the update tool.

Thanks for the update xeromist, I wonder is that is good or bad that we are not listed. My guess is the G Series are much more complicated and might take a little longer to implement?

Yup, it appears the 752's have been added since I posted that link. I'll update my post.

All I know for sure is that we ARE affected. All you need to do is use intel's own detection tool and even look at your CPU model number. I find it odd DELL and other OEMs can release all of their's but ASUS can't or that they simply don't deem their gaming line worthy of their attention.

oh... well.. it isn't new news... it's a policy - and that's my opinion after my last RMA.
IMHO and from my own experience, Asus's DNA, in terms of "service experience" for G-serie - is altered and twisted at its root nucleotides.

IMHO, instead of wasting millions of USD on marketing world-wide, pre-sale - they should invest their capitals into after-market experience for their clients.
but no.....that's not Asus's way.... - right Mr. Bahz @Asus?
