    Yet another blunder by the AMD driver team.



    Jokes. For reference.

    About 13:03 in the video I linked should explain.

    tl;dr, AMD drivers historically are fairly good and yet they get blamed for bad drivers while NVidia's problems are ignored, despite how they keep on coming.

    It always seems the way, sadly.

    Sorry, not a big enough issue for me to watch the whole vid.

    I generally just watch forums and only update drivers once people confirm that the latest releases no longer bork your system, as they inevitably do on release day... That's for both the Red and Green teams, since I've experienced problems on either side.

    Yeah AMD drivers did pick up really well (sadly just as I jumped ship), honestly I jumped to NVidia from AMD quite a few years back as back then AMD's drivers were not the best. From a driver perspective I wish I'd stayed AMD as NVidia have been more problematic for me now (AMD/NVidia seemed to have switched places on the driver issues). Still love my AMD CPU's though and again they have really upped their game in that too. I am seriously thinking of AMD for my next GPU (a few years away yet), hoping they can give NVidia a good run/beat them with their upcoming GPU's.

    Oh how I wish I could do that with Windows.

    Update: Things that no longer work properly since the last update:
    -Most of it.
    -Considering buying a van, a fishing line, a shotgun and living down by the river and shouting at dog walkers from my rocking chair.
