    Just wondering, I've heard rumors that this has been postpone until 2021. Not sure what to believe at this point.

    Every year amd updates the drivers in a big way so we can expect it again in a week or two i guess. Lets wait and see.

    WIth COVID and a lot of new product launches it may have been delayed but we will only know if a release or delay happens if it's announced from AMD.

    I wouldn't mind not getting one this year to be honest. Don't get me wrong, adding new features to their software stack is great, but in the last couple of years it's been a major disaster: offering an underwhelming experience plagued with all sorts of bugs.

    ^ +1 / This--

    Though I wouldn't mind simple additions, such as a: "prefer maximum performance", aka -- disable power management, quick toggle for game-profiles. Or, at least to make the Performance > GPU Tuning Tab's minimum clock target be respected even when load is detected as idle. {which it currently does not still, yet should}

    -- Seriously AMD, give us the features like this that NVidia has had for ages.


    Admittedly, thus far I've not had clock control related issues. I'm still extremely weary though, given the track record. I'd personally prefer AMD stop adding 'features', unless those features are related to stability.

    ... Frankly the Radeon software suite already has enough functionality, all it needs is refinement. (bug fixes, and driver optimization should be the sole priority)

    There is this guy over on another forum who know somethings about what AMD was doing back in March 2020. For example:

    https://forum.beyond3d.com/posts/2113130/

    https://forum.beyond3d.com/posts/2113522/

    https://forum.beyond3d.com/posts/2141456/
    https://forum.beyond3d.com/posts/2153469/

    He also said that AMD didn't have their drivers sorted for this GPU yet and there will not be a Anniversary Driver in December 2020. He stated that AMD will have something like that by Spring 2021. But I cannot find the post. Odd too because I found everything else he said months before the card was release. I'm still looking though. I just don't remember how he worded it.

    Blind chickens can't find corn unless they are put in the right direction.
    The point is that I recall him saying thing that no one else even considered to speculate about the card. And he also said there would be no anniversary drivers this year.
    Just can't find the post.
