I have a RX 480
I'm legit pretty upset at how often it crashes if I don't crank it up to 85%+ fan speed when playing moderately intense games, graphically speaking.

I also happen to have a FX8350. Same thing there. Bluescreens out of the ass.
When km switching over to a Radeon cpu I think I'm going team Nvidia again, with great regret, because AMD graphic drivers are the fucking worst. Drives me up the fucking wall and I'm normally a very patient person.
If only they didn't had that backdoor on the newer cpus.

After Bulldozer, AMD couldn't afford large investments in GPUs. Nvidia has several times the number of programmers assigned to things like drivers, features, cuda support, etc.

Nvidia's strategy is to come out with new features constantly and try to monopolize whatever niche the new feature is meant for. This is usually a failure and these features fade into obscurity unless it's a bombshell like cuda was. This is actually comparable to how Sony works as a corporation, you haven't heard of 99% of the things they actually spent a lot of effort creating, but you have heard of the CD.

AMD's strategy is to try to offer standardized, sometimes open features or software, while focusing on incremental improvements that are applied product line wide at the same time. They're doing this because of economy of scale, they need to invest less money to make the same amount they might otherwise, by favoring standardization. Sometimes this standardization and openness is something that helps the customer (eg Linux drivers through Mesa), but not high end customers.

AMD is faltering in their strategy because Bulldozer was a disaster and AMD had very little investment money to throw around on Radeon. This is probably being reversed now that the company is doing well again, but it'll still be years until the customer sees any tangible difference.

I think this, here, is the explaination to "great" linux drivers. There's not enough software variety for the drivers to manifest how shit they truly are, unlike on winblows where billions of games inevitably have to make the drivers implode on at least some of them.

they wouldn't need to dump as much money into their hardware if their software/driver support wasn't complete dog shit. It's a 50/50 crap shoot to see whether or not games will work completely, crash to desktop, artifact mid-game, or cause the GPU to get stuck in 3D clocks even when on loading screens.

the only reason AMD outclassed Intel is the because of their business branch not engineering. The strategy of outsourcing building CPUs payed off.

Keep in mind Ryzen'performance is almost on par Intel having the advantage of being 7nm. If they where at same node Intel would be better so its clear which architecture itself is superior.

AMD outwitted Nvidia with the TSMC fab deal too.

AMD has always been the copycat experts and with fabrication being an issue (wasnt before) they got the upper edge which is amazing for us as consumers but dont get confused, AMD has never been (or currently is) about superior R&D or innovation.

Time and capital.
AMD had no cash and the Radeon group was steadily falling apart.
Sony bankrolled the creation of RDNA in exchange for their own proprietary branch, allowing Radeon group to tread water until Zen could return a profit.

Profits are now steady and the GPU division is rebuilding with what's left over after paying debts and funding the Zen roadmap. It won't be an overnight bounce-back, but the new cards should be damn solid.

I don't want AMD or their APU's unless they get their shit together with Radeon software/driver support. Dedicated cards are a fucking nightmare as is. Last thing I want is AMD to shove the equivalent of an RX5600XT onto the CPU die only to have it perform like shit.

You need to answer his question because your claim is stupid. AMD's architecture is able to deliver 64 core CPUs easily, while Intel has to literally staple two 8 core CPUs together in order to get to 16, same retarded issue they created with the Pentium D.

>bu bu bu bu they didn't actually manufacture the CPU!
Even in this stupid argument AMD is clearly an innovator. You do know all Zen 2 CPUs are manufactured at TSMC AND Global Foundries, right? It's called chiplets, something Intel had originally promised they'd have out the door in 2017. AMD designed an arch where different parts of the chip can be manufactured by whatever manufacturing technology is best suited to whatever role.

The CPU/GPU are the most reliable part of any computer assuming they don't overheat much. The memory is not, by moving the vRAM from the APU itself you actually add another level of reliability to the whole thing since 1 HBM "card" dying could quickly be replaced for a exponentially lower cost than that of the entire system.

AMD gutted the graphics division because they nearly went bankrupt. They put every dollar they had into CPU development.

i mean we learned that amd can scale now up to 90CUs while being on the same power package as before(300watts)

that means that the card we saw on Open VR benchmark which had 40CUs is probably a mid card and this card was 20% faster than a 2080ti
if i was nvidia i would have concluded the same thing that there is a high possibility that the actual rdna 2.0 monstrocity will actually buttfuck their current lineup so they need to actually give more than 15% increase and stop kvetching around with perfomance

U wut? If anything, AMD is the only company actually innovating. The mistake they make is that they always open source everything and give it to their competition for free or that they push certain things too early (HBM).
Intel performance is only good because they have been on 14nm for ages. If they went to 7nm now, they would be far far behind AMD, as AMD already has experience on that node now.
Now Nvidia is better than intel, but they hardly innovate, they are just really good at optimizing their processes. The few times they innovated either failed or are yet to be seen (proprietary PhysX, RTX)

I've been buying AMD GPUs for ten years, the main reason is because AMD doesn't gimp their cards with a low amount of VRAM.

TSMC and Intel use different ways to measure process size. TSMC 7nm is basically Intel 10nm. Intel 7nm would be significantly better than TSMC 7nm. There is no universal measurement standard that all companies abide by. In other words, Intel 14nm isn't "twice as big" as TSMC 7nm, they are much closer to each other than people realize. Intel 10nm+ is better than the best 7nm node from TSMC, the problem is that Intel hasn't yet released any desktop chips on that node.

People think Intel is ages behind TSMC when in reality they really aren't. They will make a comeback by 2021 / 2022. Don't forget that Intel is a massive company, three times bigger than AMD / Nvidia combined.
