RE: How is no-one publicly calling AMD out for any of this? (tech reviewers)
It is a total disgrace.
There are many Tech YouTubers who claim RX5700XT is better value than RTX2070S based on highly skewed to DX12benchmarks/Vulkan, with no mention of all of these Driver Problems in Adrenalin 2020 and before.
Some reviewers are just completely biased towards AMD, and are even claiming Adrenalin 2020 is the next best thing since sliced bread... they tend to get free GPUs to keep.
I have been telling people that RX Vega 64 Liquid is still the best GPU amd made recently.
I have tested a few RX5700XT now. I think they are basically unstable and overclocked far beyond where they should be running. The GDDR6 is on the edge as well.
I have shown a number of cases where an HBM2 overclocked RX Vega 64 Liquid with HBCC on completely beats RX5700XT at 4K or in other cases with HBCC off on other games - is slightly slower FPS but - lets use the AMD Marketing Term I hate "Buttery Smooth" Frame Rate in comparison to the RX5700XT that looks like it has FPS Manic Depression, along with Tourettes levels of stutter,
There are a number of Pro DUO branded cards.
Exactly which one do you have?
Can you provide a link to the GPU on AMD Web Site please.
You might be ablke to get Crossfire to work using a Hybrid Adrenalin 2019 19.12.1 GUI/UI + Driver update using Windows device manger to later driver version.
Fixed the issue. apparently the iterations of the AMD drivers are card
specific. So I up loaded the last driver to mention the AMD Crossfire and
used it - so far doing great.
It deals with complex 3d models and scenes very well.
All is well now - using an older driver. The AMD folks need to know that
the updates from AMD are just an update and any new card may have to go
back thru the updates to find one that they can start with. I tried to
start with the Sep. 2020 update and there were no provisions in it for
crossfire support. really odd way to do things.
It is a Pro Duo Polaris 32GB edition.
. It seems to be doing great so far. It does 3D fantastic, renders well and
is ok for video editing.
So I end up letting the CPU handle more of the video editing than I'd like.
