It doesn't, to my knowledge, seem to effect the system.

Any suggestions, advise on how to clear it and is it necessary to do so.

Regards Zeb...

Okay they must have updated the intel graphics drivers upstream but haven't got around to updating the firmware yet.

It's not important to you as you're obviously not using your skylakes onboard graphics.

You have 3 options

a) ignore it .. you aren't using it anyway and it'll probably get updated automagically at some point.

b) Use the Intel graphics driver installer for Linux which **MAY** automagically pull it in whilst checking your intel graphics drivers are all up to date (latest release 30 Aug) .. if you decide you want to do this ask for instructions as you'll need to first edit your lsb-release file to reflect "Ubuntu 16.04" then edit it back afterwards.

c) download the firmware files from here (the 2 files for skylake):
https://01.org/linuxgraphics/intel-linux-graphics-firmwares
and extract/install them to /lib/firmware/i915 .. for the GUC firmware be sure to either use the included script to do the installation, or manually set up the required symlink yourself .. again if unsure, ask ;)

Hi Thanks for the reply
Your right...  I will never use the onboard graphics so I can safely ignore it.
Thank You
