    AMD can not do anything for OEM released hardware and software before release. Phoronix have written that the reason for sapphire RX590 problems is a custom bios. AMD did send patches for OEM RX 590s in two weeks. Nividia patches their kernel driver for new kernels sometimes after a month.
    First: this is not some one OEM manufacturer's fault. I've bought Powercolor's 590 and encountered same issue. Second: oem manufacturers don't write their own bioses, they modify original using some AMD written tool, I think they just write frequences/voltage to some table. And last: with windows 10 these cards work as charm, so AMD know how to handle this. Just forgot to port this to amdgpu.

      I was joking of course!
