first_img We Finally Understand Why ‘Criminal Minds’ Got Canceled The Real Reason There’s No Avengers Movie In Phase 4 Destiny 2 Doesn’t Currently Run on Ryzen 3000 CPUs, but a Fix Is Coming 10 Scientifically Proven Side Effects of Growing a Beard 4 Comments If you’re a Ryzen 3000 owner (or planning to be in the near future), be advised — Bungie’s popular Destiny 2 MMO doesn’t currently run on AMD’s latest CPU. It’s not clear why this is currently the case, but according to the developer, a fix is on the way. It will, however, require a motherboard update to resolve.AMD has identified the issue impacting the ability to run Destiny 2 on Ryzen 3000 processors and have implemented a BIOS fix that has been distributed to partners. In the coming days, players will be able to download the updated BIOS from their motherboard providers.— Bungie Help (@BungieHelp) July 12, 2019The problem cropped up a few days ago when Ryzen 3000 early upgraders found they couldn’t run the game. A week ago, Redditor Trinsikk posted:Destiny does not work on pc with the new Ryzen 3000 series Cpu’s. After clicking the play button on battlenet it says the game is running and the destiny 2 exe will show up in task manager but only shows that its using 5-10% cpu but it never will start. A couple threads have popped up on the bungie forums and it seems to be affecting all variants of motherboard /ryzen 3000 setups. Tried reinstalling windows 3 times over with full formats between and reinstalling drivers each time. Bungie halp.It’s not unusual for a new platform to have a few bugs that need to be shaken out, but this is a bit unusual — we don’t recall the last time a UEFI update was required to shake the bugs out of a specific game. In this case, there may be an issue with how Rdrand instructions are being issued on AMD processors. According to Michael Larabel, there’s some evidence of Linux hiccups on the new AMD CPUs as well, and the new CPUs are having some issue booting certain Linux distributions. It seems possible that the issues are related. If so, motherboard updates should resolve the issue.AGESA updates have been demonstrated to improve both the performance and compatibility of Ryzen CPUs in the past. When Ryzen first launched, AMD noted that gaming performance and overall compatibility would both improve over time. This was indeed the case — our initial Gigabyte board that we tested back in 2017 was unable to boot Linux until later updates solved the problem, and the overall performance of first-gen Ryzen indeed improved over time. When we revisited the CPU’s performance later in 2017, we found it had picked up speed in multiple benchmarks.The situation with X570 has been much better; AMD’s overall single-threaded performance is stronger now with the Ryzen 3000 family than it was when first-gen debuted, but there are obviously a few compatibility hiccups still to be addressed. If you’re a Destiny 2 player, watch your motherboard vendor support page for updates.Now Read:AMD’s Ryzen 7 3700X and Ryzen 9 3900X Reviewed: Red Storm RyzenNew Leak: Intel 10-Core Comet Lake CPUs Will Counterattack Ryzen 3000 FamilyIs Moore’s Law Alive, Dead, or Pining for the Fjords?
