In recent weeks, certain Windows 10 and 11 users running an AMD CPU have reported stuttering problems. AMD has confirmed the bug and identified its cause–the Firmware Trusted Platform Module (fTPM). AMD says it’s working on a permanent solution, unfortunately this won’t arrive until May. However, there is a workaround for this issue in the meantime.
For the short-term, AMD recommends you use a hardware TPM (dTMP) ship if your motherboard can support it.
If you’re looking for a fix that doesn’t mean buying anything extra, some Reddit users have stated they’ve turned fTPM off in their devices–fixing the issue. Turning off fTPM differs from motherboard to motherboard, but most can be done in the BIOS. Always remember to back up your computer when doing your own tampering.
