octane render cant use amd on windows due buggy vulcane drivers ?

why amd dont fix that ? 

is it hard to make metal like strong vulkan drivers ? 

i read a loot that amd go big in to pro world and pro world are gpu renders 


quoted from octane site 

"Does this mean Octane for AMD/Intel on Windows is now possible?

The work to support AMD and Intel (and others) was completed alongside our Metal work, but that hasn't really brought us much close to shipping anything on those devices. We really need Vulkan to catch up to Metal and it's not clear when that might happen. As of right now, the Vulkan drivers on AMD and Intel are not mature enough to compile (much less ship) Octane for Vulkan. The only Vulkan drivers that do run Octane for Vulkan just fine (which is how we know it works!) are NVIDIA's - and we will be using Vulkan+RTX for Brigade on NVIDIA.


More to be added - but this should get the ball rolling!"
