Re: RADEON 5700 IS BETA, DONT BUY IT (back to Reseller!)

Completely agree with OP and was also thinking about posting something like so as well.

I've been team green/blue for at least 10 years. Got the 2700x after zen 2 came out since its 200 bucks and have no problems coming from a 4690k, its still faster and has more cores and its great for me (WAY BETTER when video editing)

I'm like hey, let me try an all AMD build, brand new 5700 xt architecture!

YEAH NO its absolutely horrific as a well versed gamer. I'm not just playing AAA titles. As soon as one game no longer works, I'm done. Hat In Time? Unplayable. Last straw for me among blue screens, crashing, freesync black screens etc.

Switched back to team green and so hype. Freesync still works perfectly and all problems are completely wiped and I can play any game again.

Don't really care for GSYNC. I thank AMD for making Freesync - it's still good tech and works great! But their own cards are more bugged with it than team green!!!! WTH

AMD should pull these cards, completely rebrand and rebuild their drivers from scratch with a different company/team and then maybe it'll work. Things in such a broken state as this should not even be sold. But by all means if you play *very specific* set of more recent AAA games that are supported/run fine and that's all you do, then go figure. Other than that...

NO and NEVER.

RX 580 8GB cards are bounding around 150-170 at auction

Re: My Feedback On My 5700 XT

The problem with the RX5700 family is that actually you need to disable the GPU to use the system.

Disable HW Accel. (Disable the video processing by GPU)
Disable Freesync. (Disable the video signal processing by GPU)

Don't play games. (Disable your fun)

So... Why do I need to buy a GPU if i can't use it?

Seems like AMD isn't even trying to fix this card.

Re: My Feedback On My 5700 XT

How come reviewers like Hardware Unboxed are so positive about RX5700XT?
They run many benchmarks on latest titles and as far as I know they report no driver issues.

I know other reviewers like me call out bugs almost daily. And I am not the only one to do that.

Re: My Feedback On My 5700 XT

Hold off until AMD fix this mess while he stuck with his XT and have to deal with issues everyday until AMD sort this out? Looks like a waste of time and money IMO.

Probably they review with old driver versions 19.7.x

Re: My Feedback On My 5700 XT

Yes I understand, if there is really a problem with the GPU drivers and the problems are not getting fixed quickly then you end up dealing with problems, reporting bugs or not using the GPU. I kept the RX Vega 64 Liquid in the hope the drivers would get fixed, I needed the GPU for specific technical reasons. The drivers do seem to be working much better now, although the card is very power hungry and struggles @4K.  
I purchased a new Nvidia RTX2080 because the RX Vega 64 Liquid was crashing so much and I was interested in Ray Tracing & DLSS at the time.
