    Thank you for everybody that gave their experiences regarding AMD driver stability. It seems that the consensus is that the previous generation is rock solid now.
    last generation had many hardware changes from previous ones(rdna vs gcn), so drivers weren't ready on day 0, but now they seem better. as usual, don't buy hardware on day 0 without checking reviews

    nvidia doesn't use gcn for hardware

    Yarp. It's extremely unfortunate when you want to play a game with vsync which has a hardware cursor (i.e. lots of isometric stuff). It basically runs like crap vs. older AMD GPUs or Nvidia. And vsync is also very important for FreeSync when you have a display with <120Hz.
    I don't intend to gimp a leisure time hobby just for riding the FOSS crusade.
    I agree it is irritating, when it happen it makes the game unplayable. Have to say that if my old GPU did not broke this would be a show stopper for me too. But it broke, and would buy RX 5700 again. So far I am not really affected of the bug.

    i got a steam machine with an nvidia that can not cope with [email protected], let alone at 60Hz. Framebuffer bitrot was a common problem at 60Hz if steam was able to start at all. All kinds of other rendering bugs.
    (Zotac SN970).
    My RX580 (MSI RX580 ARMOR 8G OC) however had no problem at all as eGPU for my thinkpad T430 (yes, using a single PCIe 2 lane!) running the latest tombraider at [email protected]
    Also my Samsung Chromebook Plus has no problem with the 4k.

    Just pointing out that these problems are too specific to blame on a vendor.

    Thanks, but I don't like to have stutter by just moving the mouse cursor. I consider this a worse issue than Nvidia's terrible Xorg performance when opening new windows.
    I do not notice it at all. I can only notice it by watching real time graphs of FPS, that the FPS numbers drop at times. In graphically very demanding games I can notice it if I have vsync enabled. So in practice I do not notice it at all. Had I not read about it I would not be aware of it at all. But yeah, that they must fix anyway.

    Shaders for console games are compiled off-line, and Sony have their own compiler. It's not comparable to the PC ecosystem.

    Stability of Navi on Linux probably has gotten better than on Windows with kernel 5.5. Though that's not a hard thing, unfortunately.
    There are other stupid bugs as hardware cursor performance issues or limited power saving with some resolutions, refresh rates or multi monitor setups. AMD's own Vulkan amdvlk driver also is a visual corruption nightmare on Navi with DXVK etc.

    Things were looking well with Polaris, but AMD tears it all down with Navi. I've devided that I won't purchase one for myself (nor will I recommend it to others).
