    I was referring not to Linux in particular though Michael had some issue of his own with his sample, but probably from a defective part. But Windows reviewers mentioned the fan speed and temperature, also some quirks with Radeon Settings / Wattman.

    But to give you more specifics, a good revisit which focuses on the shortcomings at launch and who was quite surprised that some things are still not fixed four months later: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0r60X3XQE7o

      I'm curious theoretically if this code was written in rust how many lines it would be.

        I wish they would finally fix the long standing bugs.

        https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=108940

        Just an example... Many older chipsets not working properly.

        But seems that quality assurance is not important.

          I've been using AMD GPUs on Linux for about 10 years now, quality is not important for AMD at all. I just can''t wait for Intel's dGPUs (i.e I am looking forward to it).

            Can you be a bit more specific on the lacking quality?

            If you really think intel will do a better job at graphics - good luck.

              I've been using AMD GPUs on Linux for about 10 years now so I know for a fact AMD takes quality very seriously! Which other company can fix a bug the next day when you report something?! Which is often the case!

                Remember when they put DC up for approval? There was a lot of whining and complaining... Not so much this time AFAICT, so must have been a pretty ok job.

                  so you have some unconventional definition of throwing over the wall

                    i'm sure such vendor will get most linux sales

                      zero, because nobody is writing it in rust
