My Ryzen x2700 get segfaults frequently and freezes during ruining simple python scripts and chrome

Hi everyone,

previously I was using ryzen x1700 and entered the infinite freezing loop... And later can't even fresh install operating system, due to freezing at installation process.... Now I bought a new x2700 and was OK for last two months. But recently again, the ubuntu starts freezing with really low load like 10% cpu load and 8GB ram usage (of total 64GB). Most of them happened when I run python script just using numpy, pymysql and pandas. This script is running without problem on server with intel and on laptop with intel. And I found in syslog many seg faults happening for cython and python3.5... First was thinking the freezing is caused by the power supply idle control or c state. After changing power control to typical current. It still freezed.

Besides, chrome always crash due to seg faults, too...

What should I do for it now? Is this still caused by the known issue from AMD ? Like this?

On google I can't find one post reporting for seg faults with x2700.

Found the first seg fault in the oldest syslog under /var/log:

Maybe try to run the stress test GitHub - suaefar/ryzen-test: Tools to reproduce randomly crashing processes under load on AMD Ryzen ... , at least on my E585 / Ryzen 5 2500u is fails...
