AMD Drivers still suck, that's a thing going back all the way to the ATI days in the dawn of the 2000's.
I still have to run Google Chrome and Firefox with hardware acceleration disabled. Because the drivers fucking suck.
Whaaaaat? 5700XT owner here and the drivers are rock solid. I am running hardware acceleration under Firefox with zero problems. Smooth scrolling, audio and video playback are fine with no glitches, and generally zero problems on both Win10 and Linux.
"AMD drivers are shit and have been for 20 years" - BigSpender, nuff said.
True, I did pair my system with good components for a five year build. Even so, were the drivers truly "shit" I would have loads of issues that even raw horsepower wouldn't be able to overcome. I do not have those issues.
Also, I have loads of experience with bad Nvidia drivers on their midrange cards (970, 1060, and 1660 models). I think it would be better to say that both manufacturers have issues and that those issues are foreseeable given the vast array of possible combinations of hardware and software.
