Good Day,

You were probably referring to CPU idle states bugs appearing
under certain circumstances.

I have been confronted to an AMD Ryzen machine a few months ago,
on which processor C-states had to be disabled in UEFI config,
meaning increased energy consumption when idling.  The problem
was similar to the one described on Chris's wiki:

It has been a while since the last time I checked those AGESA
updates for the motherboard, and am not sure if the problem
would still hold true with latest kernel/firmware upgrades/etc
though.

Kind Regards,
