In my case, that's a non-issue. AMD's Linux drivers tend to actually be overall better than Nvidia's (not so much at release date but not months later either). I don't understand how AMD screws up their Windows drivers so badly though. Their products release rather late no matter what, so why not just delay another month to make sure the drivers aren't pissing people off? Though, maybe that's what they're planning with RDNA2. The good news is, it's highly unlikely the drivers will be worse than RDNA1. It's not an all-new architecture so it's really just a matter of compensating for the differences and fine-tuning everything else. I'm sure the results are real, but they're not meaningful because we don't know what model(s) are used and AOTS wouldn't exactly be one of my top picks for testing GPU performance. Too many unknowns to draw a conclusion, good or bad. Huh? AMD hasn't been competitive in the high-end market since 2014. The downfall has long passed, to the point that they didn't even release a "real" high-end product for the 5000 series.
