Any 2020 drivers are like a trojan!

I say avoid the Noid!

I shut the "constantly running" stuff off from the 2019 drivers and everything still works.

All the drivers up to the 2020 versions are OK.

Only supporting Win10 is a fail! I set up my x470 setup tomorrow!

X570 isn't that great to warrant using it.

I suppose I won't be buying any more AMD unless it runs XP.

I gonna try to make x470 run XP.

In marketplace soon: x570 "TUF" (derp!) mobo +3600x CPU

Homey ain't playin' that.

At lest right now with my 9900k if something starts to act weird in my machine I'm pretty certain that it was a Windows update that caused it, throw in questionable drivers from the chip manufacture into the mix and I'm not as willing to give AMD a chance. But hopefully AMD will get those hitches out of their get along before my next build, if they are making progress then maybe.
That's with the GPU drivers not really a CPU issue, hence this thread...for GPU drivers.

@bmgjet , i thought companies pay these organizations to find vulnerabilities so they can stay on top of security threats. I bet AMD have always used the bulletin to put out the word only after the patch have been applied.

It's nice to know that they are patching driver security holes. The 2020 drivers are more secure than the older ones and they are continuing to patch holes with their latest release too. Keep up the good work AMD. I learned to hard wire printers years ago because of their vulnerable software but that doesn't work for GPUs.

You can always run XP in a virtual machine. Compatibility goes way up this way though it eats up a bit more ram.

Also, if you use Nvidia video cards there is a utility called nvcleanstall that allows you to remove all the phone home & always running features. Completely does away with all the extra junk they force on you.
