Does BIOS control thermal shutdown or does the CPU

I have a Ryzen 5 2600 and I am wondering if there is some sort of sensor built into the CPU that detects max. temperature or if the BIOS sends the CPU a shutdown code when it reaches a certain temperature. Just curious how this works.

Re: Does BIOS control thermal shutdown or does the CPU

the CPU sends to BIOS temps - the BIOS decides on that to shutdown

PC: R7 2700X @4.1GHz + RX 580 4G (1500MHz/2000MHz CL16) + 32G DDR4-3200CL14 + 144hz 1ms FS P + 75hz 1ms FS
Laptop: R5 2500U @30W + RX 560X (1400MHz/1500MHz) + 16G DDR4-2400CL16 + 120Hz 3ms FS
