So, when I heard my friend was looking for a new card after his died, I managed to convince him to ditch nVidia and go for a 5700XT (because he was looking for the absolute best value, and, well, that is AMD, right there).

He spent 2 weeks troubleshooting, trying every possible fix provided by owners, but it kept crashing everything, either to desktop or completely. He had to return it and try a 2060S, which has been running beautifully since.

We still don't know exactly why it happened, but, well, there you go - dice rolls.

I had to do a clean install of Windows, but I believe that's a mostly a Windows update problem. You don't really see any reviewers saying, hey navi is unusable. My AMD 280 drivers felt clunky when I first switched to AMD. Then I went on to a 970 and it was smooth sailing. With the 5700 or any new product line it's best to check driver update known issues, like the Hardware Acceleration browser bug, enhanced sync bug. A simple 3 click fix.


If they had the same price vs performance and I didn't care about OCing, I would go for Nvidia no question. Navi is just to much fun with MPT and you get so much more out of it for the $. Also on Newegg you don't see it swarmed by verified purchasers saying my 5700 was unusable etc. I avoided the first months drivers like a plague and came out ahead.

Lucky me both my navis don't have those issues.

My 5700XT was horrible to the point i had to shelve it until 19.9.1 dropped. Since then it's been flawless.

Early adopters will be early adopters. I just had to wait out the storm.

Well, he last had it a week and a half ago, so I think the issues were a bit worse than most people's. He figured it probably had to do with some weird incompatibility with his hardware (that would go away as soon as he got new parts), but he didn't want to risk waiting for upgrading the rest of his stuff only to be left with a 400€ paper weight that he, then, couldn't return.

It was pretty disheartening, too, because I saw it as a chance to throw AMD a bone this generation for their efforts vicariously - my upgrade timing didn't allow me to consider their new cards for myself.

Discord™ may experience an application hang on Radeon RX 5700 series graphics products when HW acceleration is enabled.

this issue drives me insane. still not fixed, unless I have some other issue causing discord to use 99% gpu then freeze and crash.

Disable hardware acceleration in discord.

Breaking the Radeon VII's core overclocking 5 drivers back and not fixing it or acknowledging it drives me insane.

What is the latest driver that does not break Radeon VII OCing?

I've had no issue with AMD drivers going from R9 290 -> R9 Fury X -> Rx Vega 56 -> Rx 5700 XT.
