    For general use, AMD GPU drivers are already better. For compute use, HIP needs more works due to possible miscommunication from the ROCM team. However, applications like Darktable now properly handles ROCM OpenCL. Blender dropped the ball by hastily dropping OpenCL support for AMD.
    I 've read so many bad things about AMD GPUs especially that they are not so fast.
    I hope AMD will improve their linux drivers to the max !
    And come with faster cards...

      Are you sure? With dmraid you would first install Windows (and it should therefore always be accessible there) and then make the raid available in Linux to install your dualboot.

      Maybe AMD uses a new raid/disk format that isn't jet supported by dmraid. But still Windows should have access either way. It's over 10 years since I've last used this, so I might be out of touch.
      I mean, I couldn´t get it to work, but that doesn´t mean I wasn´t doing something wrong. I should also mention I intended to boot from the array.

        Absolutely not

          Sorry, what's wrong with mdadm / zfs / btrfs raid?
          Don't the AMD 's raid consume CPU cycles awnyway?

          edit; okay, dual booting. You might want to try the windows btrfs drivers, it supposedly supports raid.

            I couldn't get it to work with a btrfs RAID. Maybe I'll try to revisit it and see what happens. Good idea. Thanks.

              Back in the days when I was using it (Ubuntu 7 or 8 I think) it was a lot of manual mess to get dual boot working. Dmraid needs to load super early to be able to boot linux.

              I don't think Win can boot from BTRFS?​

              My solution would be, have a 1GB partition at the start of both SSDs, make one of that your FAT32-UEFI-Boot and regularly copy it over to the other Partition for safety. Then use the rest for a software raid0 that both understand (BTRFS?).
              I would guess that gives you much less headaches and shouldn't impact performance in any way.

                I was thinking Win on my 4TB Gen 5 nvme, and Arch on 2 x 2TB gen 4 nvmes. Probably with GRUB on the Gen 5. I plan to do a clean Win install sometime soon. I'll try it then.
