Following reports of chips burning out, Gigabyte says its AMD Socket AM5 SoC voltage levels are safe

In light of reports that excessive SoC voltage has been linked to damage suffered by certain Ryzen 7000-series CPUs (opens in new tab), motherboard manufacturers are pushing out BIOS updates and explanations, hoping to contain the fallout. Gigabyte released a statement (opens in new tab), saying its motherboards are compliant with AMD’s 1.3V recommended limit (at least with the latest beta BIOS updates anyway). 

In the statement, Gigabyte says: “Users can use HWiNFO software (opens in new tab) to accurately monitor the CPU internal SOC Voltage (SVI3 interface), which is indicated as ‘CPU VDDCR_SOC Voltage (SVI3 TFN)’ in HWiNFO. This value is reported by the internal sensor of the CPU to show the true voltage. Gigabyte uses HWiNFO to monitor the SOC Voltage on AM5 motherboards and it is under 1.3V, which is officially confirmed by AMD.”
