it sounds to me like AMD needs to heavily advertise the drivers DDU software considering that's what all these reviewers use every time they install a different graphics card. And if all these reviewers are not experiencing these issues then I would venture a guess that it might help a great deal. Maybe not for everyone but most

As a next topic, can you talk about how impressively well orchestrated was the arrival of reviews of the FD Define 7 all over the tech channels? The Canucks, the Nexus, oc3dtv, kitgurutech, optimum tech, cowcotland in France, and some others... All released a review of that product **almost within the same hour! **
It does look like there was an embargo from FD. I honestly was not expecting that, for a case. This is the kind of stuff expected from nvidia, Intel, AMD. Makes me wonder how much you guys know in advance, that you are somehow tied to not reveal before due date.
Speaking of due date, Be Quiet Pure Base 500DX and MSI X570 TOMAHAWK. If you know anything about those 2.

Some people just might have not updated their driver's for amd cards.
I was having HORRIBLE flickering. I regretted my buy immediately.
I saw a review on newegg that described my problem and how to fix and now my card works perfectly.
The card is great and I love it. But alot of people might not have updated drivers yet

AMD GPU´s pulls more Watts from the Wall then Nvidia what if most people with driver issues have weak standard 350W/400W PSU´s?
It could be that they upgrade from a slower GPU with 150W to Highend AMD GPU which has like 300W and the PSU can´t deliever enough power but the 20 Series has max 250 Watts and then the PSU can do it barely but stable.

Flu vaccines don't do shit, they have never predicted the correct strain. The flu mutates every year and it requires a new vaccine. Pharma companies guess at what the mutations will be and make a vaccine for that. They have never once made the correct vaccine.

Flu vaccine only works on the strain in the vaccine. They can only put a few strains in it, so it's a guess. It also takes about a year to make, so guess what won't be in it?

Hey Paul, if you want to be a guinea pig for the big pharmaceutical Industries be my guest. But don't insult people That don't want to get shots that contain Mercury and other harmful materials. They even flat-out admit the flu vaccine is ineffective at the dosage they give you. I myself have never had the flu in my life, and I've never had a vaccination for it. And don't forget the fact that a lot of these vaccines contain materials that have been harvested from the murder of children through abortion.

Just did some upgrades on a friends system. From Ryzen 1400 to Ryzen 3600, upgraded the BIOS on their B350 board, and installed a RX 5700 XT from RX 580 4GB. Fresh install on everything, all Windows 10 updates, newest AMD Chipset drivers and RX 5700 series drivers, etc. I ran it through a bunch of benchmarks and couldn't get it to act up at all. I'm not sure what everyone's issue is but I wasn't able to get his system to act up.

Kyle.... Joule and Watt are two different units...Joule = Energy, Watt = Power (Joule/second)
Also it's normal to put energy of food on nutrition labels. Don't you put calorie content on your food in the US? It's just a different unit of measurement for energy.
And no Paul, it's NOT the mass energy equivalent that E=mc² provides. Energy content of food is the chemical energy your body can receive not the physical energy you can get by converting the complete mass to energy. That beer would have about as much energy as detonating 10 million tons of TNT if that were the case.

The only gain i see intel getfrom that architecture is substantially faster L142/3 cache. I compared my 9900k with a latest gen ryzen which has a lot faster cache. How much this affects actual performance i cant test. But come caches are 3 times faster.
And how do we know the amd driver issue is a driver issue and not a hardware flaw? If it is flawed hardware you can do all driver tests you want but it wont change anything. People with issues should just return and see if a new one changes it. If its hardware they have a 50% chance the new one works hehe.

Like since have when in anytime in history has any communist dictatorship actually told the world the truth about their country it WAY WORSE then anybody can imagine supply chains are completely stopped indefinitely for many many industries. Tech will surge in price and collapse 789 million people are locked down as society is completely collapsed in China. If everything is "not that serious why is all of hubei locked down and told to stay home indefinitely. Or why is Russia shut down all borders to their buddy Xi. This is worse than the flu with no vaccine (as if they help) it's more infectious more deadly and has a long asymptomatic transmission period of 14-24 days. PREPARE

@Burt Macklin if you are afraid of demonetizing you may think twice about making a video on the subject, so in a round bout way, it makes the creators censor themselves. So yes you can talk about it, but there will be consequences :D

The main problem with AMD cards is windows itself, you plug your new card into a 5 year old system and there is a bunch of garbage that can get in the way.
The xe graphics cards will probably just be intel integrated graphics as a dedicated for those CPUs that don't have integrated graphics intended for basic work computers.
Asus is blaming AMD for mounting pressure problems but when you make a massive heat sink hanging off the card you have to apply more pressure, asus forgot this.

I bought an Aorus 5700 XT and while it's a really nice card, i've had some driver issues aswell. I first downloaded the driver from AMD directly and it wasn't very stable at all. I then downloaded the driver directly from the Aorus product page and it had 3 drivers to choose from in the installer and i went with the recommended one. Been working alright since then, but still some issues with setting custom fan curve and had to disable hardware acceleration in my browser for it to not glitch out all the time. The performance seems pretty good for the price and temps are pretty good, it's a beautiful (and HEAVY) card but i sincerely miss the Nvidia drivers, even with the stupid login BS

54:19 From my experience of helping friends with building/upgrading their systems, most issues with AMD graphics cards occur when you just swap the graphics card on an existing build. With a fresh windwos install i've rarely seen driver issues. So maybe AMD's driver package installer thingy is just really bad at getting rid of existing drivers and that causes these issues.

According to Tom of MLiD, most of the AMD driver issues can be resolved by removing existing GPU drivers with DDU, removing *all* other AMD drivers, reinstalling a specific GPU driver version (see Tom's recent video) and then allowing Windows to install all the other necessary AMD drivers.

True though, AMD needs to get this sorted in a more general sense. Tom mentioned that AMD has more than one driver dev team, which sounds like a terrible MO for driver support, so easy for updates to produce a mush of junk files.
