AMD promises to deliver fixes for Ryzen 3000 Destiny 2 and Linux Issues

The launch of AMD's Zen 2/Ryzen 3000 series processors has been positive, but far from smooth. Early BIOS issues with AMD's latest processors has resulted in PC gamers having issues running Destiny 2 on Windows 10 and has resulted in Linux machines failing to boost with some recent kernels. 

AMD has confirmed that fixes for these issues are coming, with the company promising updated BIOS files over the coming days, which will become available to motherboard manufacturers soon and be implemented into each company's BIOS codes within the next few days/weeks.  

Below is a comment from AMD, which was given the Jason Evangelho, a contributor to Forbes. 


     AMD has identified the root cause and implemented a BIOS fix for an issue impacting the ability to run certain Linux distributions and Destiny 2 on Ryzen 3000 processors.  We have distributed an updated BIOS to our motherboard partners, and we expect consumers to have access to the new BIOS over the coming days.

While a minority of users are having issues with AMD's Ryzen 3rd Generation processors, most users appear to be having a great experience, with AMD having fixed a majority of the early issues which plagued AMD's earlier Ryzen platforms.  With AMD's Ryzen 3rd Generation (Zen 2) processors, the company has addressed the bulk of the AM4 platform's memory compatibility issues, while also delivering an incredible generation uplift in performance.

For the most part, it seems a large majority are fine. But it's expected to find these issues on a new platform/launch. It's just refreshing to see AMD already found a large fix for Linux users.Quote

Intel doesn't really have these issues so it's hard to imagine anything.

Only issues Intel have are security flaws... which is an entirely different scenario.Quote
