After 14 months 12 bugs fixed in single instance and only 8 known to go. It is just a month until they release new cards. I hope 6000 cards won't have the same driver issue.

Aren't only two of these big fixes relating to 5000 series? Most of the new bugs come and go with new games and Windows versions. Often AMD do several fixes a month and bi-yearly super stable WHQL drivers, the WHQL ones last April fixed most remaining 5000 bugs.

All true, people are still talking about AMD drivers issues that were solved 5-6 months ago...

the BIG BUGS on the drivers are still there, ALL OF THEM, after 1 year. Good luck buying AMD cards with this disastrous team.

Right now I have a 5700XT in my main rig, The only issues I've repeatedly seen are incorrect VRAM usage numbers and Enhanced Sync not working.

Something I have noticed is that there is a very specific group that complains, They tell other people, Those people tell more people and it snowballs from there, Before long you have people who don't even have an AMD card complaining about drivers they've never even seen but they jumped on the bandwagon to fit in.

I bought an XFX RX 5700XT Thicc III on Black friday last year. I had to return it, because i suffered from Black screens (issue that it still persists to this day, and this issue has been around since at least September 2019). It has been brutally reported from AMD reddit and AMD forum, and still to this day it continues to happen.

Moreover, Stutters on some games still persist. Also problems with Enhanced sync. This are monstruous problems that have been around for 1 year. Enhanced sync directly affects the playabiility of some games, since it affects the sync between your card on your monitor. This is a TERRIBLE ISSUE.

You can just say: hey! if you disconect it, problem solved. Well, i'm not paying for something that can not be used as advertised.

Imagen if the problem still persists, that is ACKNOWLEGED BY THE COMPANY. A company does not accept as a problem, when it affects very few people. This is A PROPER PROBLEM. They are unable to solve it.

I'm not one of those that -talk. I just talk with knowledge. You can go to the AMD forum and search all my comments with this nick.
