Tesla has to patch 130K cars because their Ryzen APUs are overheating

Electric car maker Tesla issued a soft recall for almost 130,000 of its cars because of an overheating issue with its onboard CPU, according to a report by electrek. The overheating can cause the infotainment touchscreen to malfunction. Thankfully this type of recall doesn’t require people to return their car to the dealership, and a fix will be made available via over-the-air software update. 

The cars affected include the 2021-2022 Model X and Model S, and 2022 Model 3 and Model Y, which all use AMD’s Ryzen APUs. Older Teslas with Intel Atom CPUs seem to be unaffected because of their lower TDP. Since this problem can affect critical functions of the car, the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) requires Tesla to issue a recall.
