Tesla announces recall of 130,000 electric vehicles: Caused by overheating of AMD Ryzen
Tesla wrote in the recall notice:
A lagging or restarting CPU may prevent the center screen from displaying the rearview camera image, gear selection, windshield visibility control settings, and warning lights, increasing the risk of a crash.
It is speculated that this may be a cooling unit shared between the infotainment system and the battery in these Tesla models, infotainment systems with AMD Ryzen chips have higher TDPs than previous Atom processors, and the higher power consumption leads to higher cooling requirements. Tesla said it will solve the problem through OTA software updates, and it is estimated that about 1% of users will actually be affected. Models that used Intel’s solution in the past will not be troubled by the problem.
