    They can't innovate anymore(more precisely they don't care due to Zen milking, CPU dept saves GPU dept each and every year). COVID and working from home is just an excuse. I won't wonder why many red users go green, no questions asked. Boring gpu driver once again. Stable, but boring.

    Features I'd like to see on newer drivers:
    • Being able to force AF on OpenGL and other APIs other than DX9 (Radeon control panel only says it applies to DX9); I can do this on Linux relatively easily with AMD, and I'm unaware of any general API exceptions on NVIDIA
    • Change content type sent to the display over HDMI; I need to force all content as video for HDR to work correctly on my display; can do it easily with NVIDIA
    • Allow modular driver component installation; I don't need the in-game overlay or any streaming features, especially on Enterprise drivers
    • Faster OpenGL performance; common complaint with AMD on Windows, especially with Minecraft

    Not only is 6000 series beating Ampere but the 5700 xt is on par with a 2080. Looks like this "special driver" is providing a performance uplift to me. Now run along.
    LOL
    :D
