Dont go 5600xt, find the extra $30-40 for a 5700. The 8GB VRAM buffer will give it a significantly longer lifespan.For somebody like me, that is still using an eVGA GTX970, going for a 5600XT seems like quite an upgrade.
Sure, games are not using it now, but remember, the next gen of consoles starts this year, and with them comes a significant increase in RAM usage. That 6GB buffer is going to get real ugly real quick, RDR2 is a hint of future performance.
AMD really kneecapped the 5600xt by using the 5700 die, its just too close in price.
Ok, but nvidia users dont have to disable things in their driver to make their cards behave correctly. That's kind of the point, WHY has it been a note to disable hardware acceleration for 4 months? Why hasnt AMD, you know, fixed hardware acceleration instead? Couple these long fixes with AMD's refusal to admit their Navi-based cards have major stuttering issues with older games due to hyper agressive downclocking, and it seems we are back to the early 2010s, where AMD makes some great hardware plagued by driver issues that take months, sometimes 6+ months, instead of days to get fixed, assuming AMD even acknowledges them.p.s. I only watched 3 min of the vid so far, he's using a vega 64..... It looks like he doesn't even know enough to disable hardware acceleration as per driver notes for last like 4 months? This vid is painful to watch trying to get through it. Ok I'm 9 min in, he's showing forum posts from like 2017. Gonna fast forward see if he ever says anything useful.
I followed some simple steps offered to me on another forum, I deleted everything in my AMD\CNext besides aticlxx. Used task manager end process to close down anything that got in the way. Removing Radeon settings(formerly know as Wattman). managed to do more OCing in 3 hours then I had in days fighting wattman. Warning I have no idea if this will screw up your comp.
Most people really don't use the UI, they just want to game. You can use reshade in place of radeon settings image sharp. They should scrap Radeon settings. Maybe give us a simple image sharpening toggle, anti lag toggle, radeon boost toggle. No overlay, all that other buggy nonsense. There are plenty of free programs to stream, share blablah with.
Driver notes have shown overlay issues, relive issues, hardware accel issues, stuttering, monitor hz bugs. Profiles that load on top of eachother. Settings that get stuck even with a driver reinstall. All for what to push a UI that is dragging down their rep?
I'm not any kind of expert, this is just some guess from how my 5700 non xt seems to behave. Fighting with driver for the last 5 months.
p.s.s. If I had a second computer next to I'd do a clean windows install no optional updates. Install with optional updates. Install radeon drivers with and with settings deleted as shown above. To see what happens. Someone needs to give us a clear workaround. I know someone knows lol
