Why does AMD refuse to invest in fixing the drivers for the 5700XT?

I have been a die hard AMD fan all my life (bought a K8 new) and despite their shortcomings I always try to stick with team red. However this is the last straw. I have never been so disappointed with a graphics card as I was with the 5700XT and it's the drivers that are to blame. Awesome features like FreeSync and boost absolutely ruined by horrible system breaking bugs like black screen during games, insane stuttering and poor performance (due to poorly optimized drivers). It's not like I was an early adopter the card has been out for over 6 months, this level of instability is totally unreasonable. I am not the only one experiencing this and the bugs are consistent and reproducible. This is totally inexcusable and I have totally been let down by you AMD. This is officially the last amd card I will ever buy. Luckily their CPU division does not suffer from the same level of incompetence and I can continue to support them in that way.
