AMD fTPM causing random stuttering.

18 hours ago, gymleader said:

@stageOne thing I will say is that if you take Asus Crosshair boards out of the equation, the other manufacturers flagship boards are widely unaffected. For how popular the MSI X570 Tomahawk is I can't see a single report of that board stuttering (that I remember seeing anyway). Same with the Unify or Godlike lines. The Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master also seems unaffected.

 

On the guru3d forum someone made a compelling case for faulty CPU that makes alot of sense.

 

"the forced/default tpm config in the latest bios is exposing it because of periodic validation colliding with a correctable bus error, which Ryzen cpu's have higher than the industry average of.

since the ftpm fires a locking interrupt IO delays until the interrupt service succeeds."

 

I know it sucks to say a faulty CPU but it's the only logical conclusion now. Sure if like everybody had the problem you could blame software but since most Ryzen users are fine it's probably just a bad batch.

 

 

I have both a 3800x and a 5800x that both do this. That is surprising luck.

Hello. Sorry for my english. Who can tell me how to disable Ftmp on an ASUS ROG Strix G17 G713QM laptop? BIOS is locked, there is no disable function. The problem with stuttering occurs 1 to 5 times a day. Help me please. Thank you.

Actually had this issue from the very beginning of my Win11 install. Was testing everything that I can, hard drives, GPU, CPU (3900x) etc. etc.
And here it is... fTPM was the culprit! It was stuttering at least 2-3 times a day.


Tried disabling the fTPM with Windows 11 installed and was surprised that it booted normally. I don't use bitlocker though.

No stutters so far. Not sure about the long term effects of disabling fTPM on Windows 11, but we will see. Hopefully AMD/Microsoft fixes this.

Me too. I would like to know what are the consequences of disabling fTPM. At the moment, I have not experienced stuttering again.

@stage Well I mean I'm just going by memory. To see if that was true you would have to scroll through every single forum/reddit post and log what boards had problem and then make an aggregated list. Just for example I know people with Dark Hero boards who don't have the issue but other Dark Hero owners who do. In that respect you can edge towards a hardware fault. People have tried so many different drivers and BIOS versions that if it was a software issue, some specific combination would fix it.

 

As for the batch stuff, I'm not too versed in AMD's manufacturing but don't they only have Taiwan (TSMC)? Then it doesn't matter where the product gets distributed too since it all originates from the same location.

 

I know it sucks for it to be a hardware fault that can't be fixed but sometimes you can't bury your head in the sand expecting a different result. Sure it sucks but could be worse. All I know is I'd rather have this problem than the USB disconnect issue that plagued last year.

While I think this theory is very interesting and plausible, there's still one thing that keeps me from being 100% convinced:
A batch would be a few hundred CPUs. But this persists across generations of CPUs. People with 3000 series, 5000 series and even some with 1000 series Ryzens are reporting this issue.
Not trying to argue with you, just trying to understand / learn.

Maybe some hope for this being a software issue after all. Stumbled upon this: 

It would actually be hilarious if this is all because the AMD url can't be fetched properly to get the certificate so thus it times out and causes the stutter.

 

The guy linked this forum thread on Microsoft: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/questions/537944/tpm-event-logger-error-after-cpu-swap-event-id-86.html?page=1&pageSize=10&sort=oldest

 

Now that would fix the certificate issue so that should be happy days. The problem is that fix dates back to November 15th 2021 for the dev build. I have literally 0 idea of how I would track this to see if the update rolled into global Windows 11 patches or if it's still just hovering around in this insider/dev build that from what I understand you have to specifically opt into or install.

And here's the first issue with disabling fTPM. You can't shut down your pc using "Shut down" button from start. You need to use 

shutdown /s

CMD command to properly shut down.
A small bug, but annoying non the less.

Just putting a point out there, AMD GPUS can experience stutter on some DX11 games and it has nothing to do with HW faults. It more comes down to developer implementation vs driver coding. AMD systems have next to 0 issues on Vulcan because it optimizes how AMD uses its hardware long story short. So as with anything comped there are hundreds of reason why stutter may happen as lots of pieces go into working with fTPM...

This is not about AMD GPU's, DX11 or even gaming in general. Some systems will just be idling or having a spreadsheet open, and the stutter will occur.

So I've disabled fTPM few days ago, as nothing changed, it still randomly cause sound stutter. Everything was ok... until, we with friend decided to play some Valorant... and what do you think, Vanguard anticheat REQUIRE TPM 2.0, AND secure boot... i wonder for? Because it's deffinitely don't require anything like this in Windows 10 that installed on my friend's PC, he have pretty old Potato PC, and doesn't have any TPM and even UEFI. 🤦‍♂️I feel like Rito did it just in same way as MS added it as hard requirement, just for sh*ts and giggles i guess.

So i forced enable it back, and enable Secure boot, that I'm actually don't know nothing about, I really don't know what exactly this feature do, and how my PC be better with it, i guess it protect me from hackers that can have physical access to my PC or something.

No noticeable stutters for now, tho, but it's mean nothing, their rarity, length and appearance pretty random in my case.

For sure! Hence my point if under load issues can be caused by in-optimizations and not hardware issues. Then it is far MORE likely under no load it isn't simply speaking hardware problems. Read the rest of this forum if you are confused as to why I bring that up


Correctable errors for example under almost no load would not simply lead to stutter. But edge-cases and poor optimization, oh yeah that happens far more then people realize. This is coming from someone who operates in the DC space and see lots of different cases and what causes them 🙂

Just a suggestion for anyone that has these issues, keep a personal log write down time and date each time it happens, you can check windows logs every time to eventually each time it happens you check you gonna recognize pattern, its annoying but im sure 1 of the apps from Microsoft is causing this.

My last discrete tpm stutter was on 26-01-2022 i don't remember the time, no issues so far but for me it really happens only once a month if lucky.

If had it once a month and more often with ftpm as well even on windows 10

 

This might be useful for some heck im going thru it now my self since it has log entries from 26 januari where i had first tpm stutter

tpmtool gatherlogs

I wonder if something is wrong it only shows information symbols tho.

Its not gpu stutter, its more like a whole lot of micro freezes happening rapidly for 5 seconds that effects entire system including controls sound framerate etc.

Anyway if had this once a day but also once a month if no idea why it became much more rare.

Hello guys,

I have just registered to say that I have this issue too, and it is driving me nuts. It has been better the last 2 months, but it sill appears occasionally. The 2 videos that have been posted show the issue 1:1 like I have it. I'm glad I could find a reasonable explanation for this and that it's not specifically related to my device or Windows 11 itself.

If I understood this correctly, AMD still hasn't officially acknowledged this issue?

+1 on this issue. I just saw an article about it and the video on the first page of the thread accurately describes the issue.

 

I'm running a Ryzen 9 5900X, RTX 3080 and Gigabyte Aorus X570 Elite Mobo. The stutters randomly happen, sometimes while I'm in YouTube, sometimes when I'm playing games. Always random, never one app triggers it. My TPM is on.

 

Glad it's not an isolated issue

Is there a fix for this issue? since looking through 19 pages of replies hasn't seemed to of shown one, I've been having this issue too from the vids I have seen, just still unsure how to fix it if there is one

 

Side note - I stream, and whilst the stutter happens sometimes there, It doesn't show in the VOD, just thought that someone out there might want to know if they didnt :3

1) disabling fTPM (if you use Windows 11, you can install it and then disable fTPM, but if you want play Valorant on win11 it force you to enable it back and also secure boot? Also as i understand some laptops don't allow you to disable it at all)

2) buying discrete TPM module (some reports it didn't helped, some reports it did)

3) this

 - but I'm don't know anything about this program and didn't tried, one dude reported it's not working for him.

There are no, all fixes suggested other then disabling security device are placebo fixes that don't really work.

ty, it's not happening enough to need a fix but since I saw this post pop up I thought I'd see if there was an actual fix

Vivetool fix some one already reported he had tpm stutter

incase you figure that out to this is how you remove it.

.\vivetool delconfig 31621124 1
.\vivetool addconfig 31621124 1

Addconfig to add tweak, it disables some kind of logging, but i still think this wont fix it.

Okay, I've been having this issue for months and I had tried literally everything possible, except for fTPM. It was driving me crazy!

 

I have a R5 3600, an ASUS B450M Gaming-pro and a 2060 Super and those stutters would happen randomly out of nowhere, while gaming or just watching youtube.

 

I can also confirm that downgrading back to windows 10 and disabling fTPM on bios finally solved the issue.

discrete chips do not solve tpm stutter, had to do clean install was playing audio while installing a lot of stuff on my 980 pro 2 tb nvme from Samsung, and i had the longest tpm stutter, had a few very short tpm stutters to but haven't had one since i disabled SHA-1 which from if i understood is bassicly the old tpm 1.3 or 1.2 standard, which windows 11 can fall back to, but im not sure google is not exactly useful for searching that kind of info, im not a tpm tech wiz.

 

If you where hoping for a easy solution don't get your hopes up, also i would not call this ftpm stutter, its also happening with non ftpm chips

My discrete TPM did indeed solve the stutter, but it may not work for all of them.

Mine is a cheap clone of the MS-4136.

Processor: AMD Ryzen 7 5800X | Memory: 32GB Corsair VENGEANCE RGB PRO 3600MHz (18-22-22-42) | Motherboard: MSI MAG X570 TOMAHAWK WIFI (MS-7C84) | Graphics: AMD Radeon VII 16GB

You have to realize the tpm stutter can only happen once a month or may happen while you are afk there no way to be sure its fixed.

I had the same issue and it was not just once a month or twice a day, it was SEVERAL TIMES A DAY both in games and windows general use (like browsing or listening to music), disabling AMD fTPM on BIOS solved the problem completely. PC Specs: Ryzen 5 2600, ASUS TUF B450M-PLUS GAMING, 16GB DDR4, GTX 1660. It happened even on Windows 10 when TPM was enabled, not just 11.
