Latest AMD AGESA Firmware Inadvertently Disables Cores On Some Ryzen 5 7600X CPUs

AMD’s latest AGESA ComboAM5PI firmware seems to do more harm than good.Pointed out by a hardware leaker chi11eddog (opens in new tab)the firmware is reported to disable some cores on the Ryzen 5 7600X, prompting various motherboard vendors to pull updates from their websites.

The faulty firmware doesn’t affect all of the Ryzen 5 7600X, one of the best CPUs out there. Only affects samples utilizing a dual CCD design. Given the Ryzen 5 7600X’s hexa-core, 12-thread configuration, a single CCD is enough. However, some Ryzen 5 7600X processors have two CCDs inside. Clearly AMD fused an extra CCD so it can’t magically unlock the core.
