Good news for Windows users with AMD systems: a few months ago, a problem was discovered that caused some computers to suddenly start hiccupping. Thanks to a new BIOS update, however, this error is finally history.
Windows users can breathe a sigh of relief: annoying AMD problem is history
Windows users with an AMD system have been fighting an annoying problem for months: their computer keeps stuttering, hangs for a fraction of a second, and the image freezes for a short time. A sudden drop in performance – but for no apparent reason for the user. AMD already noted on the official website at the time:
“AMD has determined that certain AMD Ryzen system configurations may intermittently perform extended fTPM-related memory transactions in on-board SPI Flash memory (‘SPIROM’), resulting in temporary pauses in system interactivity or responsiveness until the transaction is complete.”
Now AMD seems to have finally managed to solve the problem and promptly released a suitable BIOS update.
In the video we explain what the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is responsible for – and why it is essential for using Windows 11:
This is how you get the BIOS update
The BIOS update with AGESA version 1207 for your AMD motherboard cannot be obtained directly from AMD. Instead, you have to look for the appropriate patch on your motherboard manufacturer’s support website. If you don’t know by heart which mainboard is in your computer, you can use tools such as CPU-Z to read out the corresponding model number.
Support websites of well-known mainboard manufacturers:
Keep an eye out for an update based on AGESA 2107. For some motherboard models, you can also download the update directly from the UEFI over the Internet. After updating your BIOS, the stuttering problems should be a thing of the past.
