HIGHLIGHTS

AMD Ryzen 3000 series has been causing boot issues for a few, newer Linux distros.

Additionally, users with the new CPUs are also facing issues with Destiny 2 on Windows.

AMD has issued a statement that they have implemented a BIOS update for this issue and the patched version should reach users soon.

AMD launched its latest Ryzen 3000 series of CPUs just last week which are the first 3rd-generation Ryzen chips to be based on 7nm technology. However, there seems to be some problems with the CPUs already. Some Linux users noticed that there's an issue with some newer distros which are based on 5.0 or higher that causes the OS to be not able to boot up. 

Some users did manage to get around this glitch either by taking the systemd component back to an old version or a newer patched edition. However, now there are complaints being raised by gamers on Windows since they are having issues with Destiny 2 on the new CPUs. As reported to Bungie, over the last couple of days, some users complained that the game refuses to launch when used on PCs with the new chips.

In a statement to Phoronix, AMD said that they have implemented a BIOS fix for the issue and have distributed it to motherboard manufacturers. Now users will just have to wait patiently until a patched version is made available to them, which reportedly could be as soon as next week for beta releases. 

NVIDIA will allegedly have a fix out soon too in order to address the BSOD crashes on systems that have the Ryzen 3000 with GeForce GPUs.
