AMD launched its Ryzen 3000 Series CPUs just last week and systems that run them have faced a minor problem. It was quickly noticed by Linux users that an issue with the newer distributions that were based on version 5.0 or higher were unable to boot. Games on Windows reported having issues with Destiny 2 as well. Both of the issues will need to be resolved through a BIOS update.
Linux users did find a workaround by either taking the systemd component to an older version or running a newer patched edition. Windows gamers complained that Destiney 2 wouldn’t launch on systems with AMD Ryzen 3000 Series CPUs.
AMD has confirmed to Phoronix in a statement hat a BIOS fix has been implemented for the cause of these issues and that it has been distributed to motherboard manufacturers. “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,” it said.
It’s only a matter of time now before they make the patched versions available to customers. That could happen by early next week for beta releases. More information should emerge on the situation over the next few days for sure.
