Let me explain. It’s not people doing it wrong, it’s AMD. Radeon software support is simply awful, you are incredibly lucky to never have an issue. Most of the issues I have are acknowledged on the AMD website. Some of them since 2016 with no fix. Many issues take time for AMD to acknowledge like the black screen bug, which remains unfixed.I see posts like this all the time, and always find them baffling. I just sold an RX-480 for more than I paid for it, and bought a 6600 XT at just over MSRP, at Micro Center. I would never pay more than MSRP, but considering what I got for my old RX-480, it was doable. My RX-480 was rock solid for years and years, as were the drivers. I never once had a single issue. And my new 6600 XT runs perfectly. And I once owned a computer business, in which I sold hundreds of AMD products, and never had a problem with any of them. I have to wonder what people are doing wrong, to have such problems with AMD products.
Nvidias drivers are far better although people still have issue with both and some people will have no issues. Just because you don’t have any problems does not mean others don’t.
AMD support is worse than Nvidias. This is a fact. And the primary reason why AMDs market share is declining and their cards sit on shelves at MSRP whilst people way way above MSRP for Nvidia.
