You may not know that your motherboard may quietly kill your Ryzen processor faster than expected. This is the text that appeared in a post on the HWinfo forum. HWinfo forum this post about AMD X570 motherboard blindly improve chip performance and thus may lead to chip life, the post through a lot of data to show that some motherboard manufacturers in order to obtain higher processor performance, disregard for processor heat, power consumption and so on, is the chip continued to high performance output, to add selling points for their own products.
As a result, such an operation could affect the life of the processor. At present, the related posts have received a very high level of discussion.
The content of the post shows that some X570 boards are improving performance by reporting some key measurement data to the Ryzen processor. This practice is similar to overclocking, but is achieved through firmware settings. As a result, the chip consumes more power and generates more heat, which can lead to a shorter life than expected.
AMD responded to this, according to Tom’s Hardware. AMD said it was aware of situations where some boards may not be adequately reporting some power telemetry data that could cause performance changes in Ryzen processors, and they are studying the accuracy of those reports.
At the same time, AMD says its Ryzen processors contain a variety of internal protections that operate independently of external data and that enhance processor security and reliability during firmware operation. AMD said its initial assessment concluded that the conditions described in the post could seriously affect the life or safety of the processor.
