Nah, it's been fixed. I got the XFX 5700 a few months ago and for sure it had driver issues at the beginning, but they've been patched now. Initially had random black screens and whatnot but haven't been having any problems for the last month or so.
Got that Zoomer plan finally!

I find the 5700 is in an awkward position. A 5600XT is has a lower price and can be overclocked close to stock 5700 performance. Given the price difference, a 5700XT is a better buy.
So I would get a 5700XT or a 5600XT if on a budget. Also, I would definitely stay away from a blower type, Nvidia or AMD.
Running a 5700XT very stable for a while now. Funny enough my 2nd GPU is a 750TI and it had more driver issues than my AMD card, the AMD driver issues are folklore.
Imo of course.

I don't have this card or this issue, but recent reports of issues with 'Windows 10 Gaming Mode' using recent 5700 drivers.
"I built a new PC last year and I've been brutalized by the 5700 XT drivers ever since, or so I thought. Windows added a 'Game Mode' apparently, on by default, in some update, and after I disabled it tonight the difference is night and day. The CRAZY intermittent stutters are TOTALLY gone in my testing.

Id rather get a 2060 KO over this card to be honest. Ray Tracing and Driver stability plays a factor for sure
I cant tell if im addicted to RFD or good deals

Double check before buying but I believe that card also suffers from poor thermals and noise. I assume it's less than the blower model though.

Also don't forget the card in the OP can be flashed to XT firmware (as well as the Asrock) for additional performance.

It is ironic. When I purchased my RX480 many redflag users were envious of it. But I only finally got that to work stable by under volting it recently, and I think most redflag users wouldn't accept such an old card for free.

Lesson learned. It doesn't matter what the specs are. If it doesn't work reliably at the time you buying, you are over paying.

Yeah, raytracing on the 2060 is basically so Nvidia marketing can put a tick on the checkbox. If you want to dabble with any RT, you’ll need the higher end models, preferably the hugely expensive 2080 Ti.

This is true but it still works on my 2060 KO Ultra regardless where as it wont on an AMD unit with terrible driver support

Why does it matter if it's too slow to be useful? That's like saying you can race a motorcycle with a bicycle just because it also has two wheels.

But if you flash 5700 bios with 5700XT bios - then the position changes again

Does not work for all 5700 though.

I can't afford a 2080 and this is all I got. To be honest even without the ray tracing the performance is similar to a 5700 but with way better driver support
