Fixing Mass Effect black blobs on modern AMD CPUs
Graphical artifacts caused by a CPU, not GPU? Sure thing.
Very engaging debugging story with an unexpected conclusion.
"What makes this issue particularly interesting? Vendor-specific bugs are nothing new, and games have had them for decades. However, to my best knowledge, this is the only case where a graphical issue is caused by a processor and not by a graphics card. In the majority of cases, issues happen with a specific vendor of GPU and they don’t care about the CPU, while in this case, it’s the exact opposite. This makes the issue very unique and worth looking into."Posted on 2020-07-19T20:56:25+0000
