AMD admits there are problems with USB devices on 500-series motherboards


Recommended Posts


AMD is now asking Reddit community members who experienced USB connectivity issues to report them to AMD.


Since the Reddit post was made, the issues have been widely commented on by multiple users who experienced said issues. Users report that their USB connections will drop in a frequent manner, causing keyboards, recording devices, or even VR headsets to lose connection. The VR headsets are probably the easiest way to reproduce the issue, as reported by the users. A system equipped with a high-end GPU based on a PCIe Gen4 interface in addition to a VR headset (which relies on high-power USB connections), can easily lead to USB devices disconnect.

Everything when down briefly on mine. I had Soundblaster X7, Headphones Charging, a Keyboard and Mouse Powered Switch, Webcam, Xbox Controller, Wireless Xbox Receiver, and an External SSD. I was transferring a movie to the external SSD. Whole usb went down. Unplugged a few things, came back on.
