After numerous users reported performance issues related to an activated TPM 2.0 (fTPM) feature, AMD has now announced a BIOS update. The upcoming update aims to fix stuttering on Windows 10 and 11. Despite several updates to Windows 10 and 11, so-called “stuttering issues” have been reported on more and more systems lately.
Computers with Ryzen CPUs and Trusted Platform Module (TPM) enabled should crash briefly. In addition to a stuttering mouse pointer, the sound must also be distorted. It doesn’t seem to matter which app is running. AMD has now identified the cause of the performance issues and promised a BIOS update.
the AMD Support Page According to them, the problem is caused by the fact that some Ryzen system configurations can temporarily perform extended fTPM-related memory operations in the SPI flash memory of the motherboard. This causes temporary interruptions in system interactivity until the associated transaction is completed. Only fTPM is affected by this, so there should be no performance limitations on systems with a dedicated TPM module.
Update will be delivered early May
The BIOS update is planned to be available in early May. The update can be installed on all motherboards with AGESA 1207 or newer. Until the update, affected users have the option to deactivate fTPM and use a dedicated TPM module. If this is not possible, the function can be disabled. If BitLocker is activated, it is recommended to have the recovery key ready beforehand.
