There are 2 other thread discussing this:

and

But you know this because you participated on the second discussion I linked here.  If you would like a more detailed "You are SOL" thread, surely check out the first one.

Also, we should get it cleared up that Meldown (variant #2) is fixed by the microcode.  Spectre (variants #1 & #3) are OS patches.

 

Anyway, Intel has pulled the microcode updates for now, but if you own a Sony, you will never ever get it regardless.
