Ryzen 5 3550H overheat and throttling on Linux

Good time of a day.


I and many other owners of Asus FX705DY / FX505DY (with latest BIOS 313) have problems with Ryzen 5 3550H CPU overheat on Linux. When CPU is under load and it reaches temperature over 80° C - CPU will throttle to 399MHz and will stay at this frequency until reboot.



I tested multiple Linux distributions: CentOS, Fedora, Manjaro  - CPU throttles on all of them. To exclude HW problem I also tried Windows 10 - no CPU throttling, so it's not hardware problem, but I can't use Windows for my Job.

If You may need any other info, please ask.
