    GeForce Experience and ShadowPlay is not drivers.
    There are many settings in the Nvidia CP on Windows that didn't make it to Linux that you can pick on, but GFE and SP are not among them.

      You have access to more settings via environment variables, but don't assume they work the way you want. ^^

        The 550 uses a full GPU chip as far as i know (Polaris 12 with 512 shaders), they could cut that back to 384 and 256 shaders and offer it as a solution for Ryzen CPU-based workstations, as well as an upgrade path to older desktops. They could even use DDR3 RAM on them to keep costs low, it wouldn't matter for desktop/HTPC use.
        Besides , there are low profile or single slot RX 550s, but no low profile and single slot ones, which is an area where NVidia is now alone with the GT 1030.
        Value for money does not matter in this segment, the top and bottom of the dedicated graphics card market have never really been worth their price.
        They should have a RX 565 or something like that. The difference between 560 and 570 is tremendous.

          I don't see what all the fuss is about. All anyone needs is a Matrox Millenium and a Voodoo Graphics PCI card. If someone tells you otherwise, it's probably some rich snob who upgrades his PC every few years just because he can.

            true we all get the point the driver need DAL/DC code in the mainline kernel and we need a GUI

              Just buy a fucking audio cable, that's that simple
              ## VGA ##
              AMD: X1950XTX, HD3870, HD5870
              Intel: GMA45, HD3000 (Core i5 2500K)

                I already have enough bloody cables around my office, that enough is enough and wish I could have half as many to make it more organizer and easier to clean, etc. Running an audio cable just to hear some IRC/message beeps and such isn't worthwhile, even though I probably have a dozen analog audio cables in a box somewhere.

                  Well, I'd like an RX 575, rather, at 150W TDP. Right now it's either an RX 480 or an RX 570, and the 480 is much better... but out of production.

                  Oh, and I thought it would be RX 560X and RX 570X, but apparently they changed that naming scheme in the 400 series again and now it's indeed XX5. Makes sense, but sigh, all the convention changes...

                    Well, looks to me you are trading a problem for another, going proprietary with Fedora. A cable you set once, a driver...

                      True, but "Mesa has no GUI" could be fixed, you know GTK+ and c? It's one afternoon thing to do, since I am an idiot, I never gone past constructing window with CSD and one button. Here is an idea for guys who actually know what the hell they are doing. CSD application named "Basic MESA settings" or something, two buttons on the top, one named "Per User" and another "System Wide", per user and system wide could (or should) have same settings, the only difference is one would affect profile ~/.drirc and other /etc/, then, under say "per user" construct slider with 4 positions, first position would echo (or something, I wanted to do with echo, but I'm sure there's more elegant solution) V-sync "Always Off" (and you can name it that way, vblank value 0), another option would use "Off by default" (vblank value 1), 3rd one would be "On by default" (vblank value 2) and 4th "Always On" (vblank value 3), it's quite similar to what was used in Catalyst, maybe there's only 3 values I'm not sure, but I know for a fact that value 0 and 1 are the values i said here.

                      Other options might be some options related to R600_DEBUG=xxx echoed to environment or profile (depending if it's system wide or per user), and you can get really creative with options, but try to limit them at minimum for easier maintenance. Or, to not complicate things, just do it "per user" without "system wide", it removes need for root privs.

                      I'm suprized no one did such simple application already .
