I've been using an AMD rx5700 since 03/19 and it has been rock-solid. No black screens, nothing.In my opinion, I feel Intel's ARC dedicated GPUs are too late in the game, especially when we are looking at the top end model that is expected to compete with the likes of RTX 3070 and RX 6700 XT. The former was announced and released last year and a new generation expected in 2022. 2022 is where ARC is supposed to be released if I am not mistaken. So whatever attractiveness of the ARC GPU will be negated as we close in towards the later part of 2022. The only saving grace for Intel is that the GPU shortage may drive a higher adoption rate of their ARC GPU. But this is a double edged sword for them because if Intel mess up the initial experience, when things eventually recovers, not many gamers will be interested in buying it. It is like how AMD messed up the RDNA launch with very bad driver issues, which made a lot of people skeptical when they released RDNA2. Till now, I have seen people asking if AMD GPU drivers are stable or not. So that impression sticks around.
From my perspective the driver issue is non-existent. Just like my previous card Nvidia 9600 (which still works fine in another rig). Given that none of the tech press reviewers had any issues with the RDNA cards either. It would seem that the driver issue was overblown.
