AMD is planning to release a BIOS update to fix an issue in the Fused Multiply-Add (FMA3) code that is causing systems with a Ryzen CPU to hang. The company didn't provide details on what the specific issue was but stated, "We are aware of select instances where FMA code can result in a system hang. We have identified the root cause." The problem was first noticed using the Flops v2 benchmark, but it was also noted that "simple apps with basic user privileges can crash a Ryzen-based machine."
