In case you didn't know, about a month ago, AMD released a new update for the chipset driver for its Ryzen product range, which unfortunately brought some problems to the mix. So, last week we had another update to resolve the bugs introduced by the first one … What we even managed to do, the problem is that we had new unexpected bugs appearing on users' computers.
Update AMD drivers causing problems! Caution!
So it's safe to say that the AMD driver team is not doing its job! After all, after the latest updates to the RX 5000 graphics cards start to give some serious problems at stake, it seems that the time has come for Ryzen processors to also have some problems with the chipset drivers.
Fortunately, I have not yet experienced any of these problems on any of my Ryzen machines. However, according to some reports on the Internet, the installation seems to reach 100% without any problem, but it is sometimes unable to install the latest version of the GPIO driver. Therefore, we now have reports of higher power consumption by the CPU, meaningless voltages, among other problems.
AMD is already gathering user feedback and logs to understand what is happening to try to resolve a new update. In the meantime, if you have updated to the latest drivers and are experiencing problems, it may be a good idea to go back to one of the versions prior to the problem.
The driver in question is version 2.04.04.111 (AMD Ryzen Chipset), which is suitable for A320, B350, X370, B450, X470 and X570 platforms, as well as A399 and TRX40.
