Since I'm really upset with my AMD GPU. I come here along to see if anybody can join this topic and make some pressure to fix it.
We all know, Nvidia have the big piece of the cake. I have heard, in some way, games use to play better in Nvidia GPU.
This time I test it by myself now...
My PC config:
- Intel i7-9700k
- Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming Lga 1151
- Samsung 970 EVO Plus 500GB SSD NVMe M.2
- Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 16 GB (8 GB x 2)
- XFX AMD Radeon RX 590 Fatboy 8GB GDDR5
I mainly have PC for download some videos, edit , browsing and play few games. Right now , only playing Call of Duty Modern Warfare. ( only playing at Battle Zone mode)
It crash. Sometimes takes 5 minutes to crash, sometimes take 1 hour to crash, but it does, A LOT!
I had test everything I could find relevant info @ internet. Nothing works. Finally, I was really upset and mad. And wanted to test another GPU.
I bought , second hand, Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB.
Guess what ... works perfectly fine, his performance it's a bit less, but man, you can play it without any worry !
Same PC, same directX version , everything same, less Nvidia and AMD drivers of course. I uninstall and install each one at his time. Uninstalle before unplug the GPU and , plugin new GPU and install new drivers.
with this empiric test, without being and Engineer, I been test it's problem of AMD drivers.
of course I had check for the lasttest drivers. It's updated. Actual version 20.5.1 from 25/05/2020.
I know AMD Radeon Softwares app crash because after game crash I tried to open the software and seems bugged, do not open rigth, also at bottom tray, next to Windows clock. It appears multiple icons of Radeon Software.
I hope you will join this thread if you have the same problem. Let's see if we are a good group and we can push for it to be fixed.
Buy an AMD GPUsince theoretically for its price it was much better than the Nvidia.
But if I know that it gives so many problems, I would have invested a little more money. = (
Let me know your opinions.

Another problem, not important to me, does not catch the temperature of the GPU.
Tray bug, after crash. Sometimes I see 3 icons there. ( always after a crash)
