TDR issues must be very limited. ...
As for the AMD Crimson driver issues, well, this is why I have had nVidia GPUs exclusively in the past 15+ years Wink .
It's not. Back before the nvidia forums were hacked, there was a thread with 500k+ posts and 1.9m views over a 6mo period just on TDR problems, it was so bad that nvidia was paying shipping people in the US to send them their PC's so they could test them in their labs. Blue posted a story on it a few years ago.
The TDR problems became very bad around the 310.x drivers, and it has to do with the low powerstate used to keep the cards cool. Unfortunately, some cards don't handle low power settings well and crash causing a TDR. Usually those same cards also have a high power state problem, causing them to TDR when they're running at close to 100% usage as well. It's not a person problem, it's a driver and GPU problem on their cards.
Oh and nvidia has had the fan control problem twice in the past, and they simply washed their hands of having their drivers burn out cards because the fan settings were too low.
