I would say this depends on the level of public disclosure. For
example from "upstream" (AMD) there was a very limited disclosure (no
public announcement I'm aware of) and just some notes in a single PDF.
However this was also made public via the person who found it and then
picked up by ZDnet in an article, so I would personally count that as
quite public.

Can you post a link to this ZDnet article? I don't think it can be the
one linked in the CVE description itself, because that talks about a
different, earlier bug IIUC; I privately asked Matt Dillon, who
discovered Errata 721, and he agreed that this CVE talks about a
different (but maybe related) Errata, #793.
