I recently got a Radeon VII and because of system/game crashes (black screen with reboot, no BSD) I finally managed to bring it under control with no crashes:

- Disable all GPU HW Acceleration in Chrome, Office, Discord etc
- Undervolt Radeon VII as @ stock volts they have way to many volts and Junction temps are well over 100c
- Disable all monitoring software like Afterburner & HWINFO64

It took a lot of troubleshooting to get a stable system but finally I have no issues and performance in games and compute apps is great.

An average PC user would have returned the card and gone Nvidia.

I am now really happy with how my system runs but my god it was an effort and a hell of a lot of windows installs.

EDIT - Strange thing is , some people report absolutely no issues with AMD drivers. I guess it all comes down to what else you have running on your PC.Quote

I am not an average PC user and I would still return the card and go Nvidia. Not because I'm a shill or fanboy. I have gone to further lengths to make stuff run on Linux, but that was my choice and I knew that is the way things work. If I was on Windows things would work just fine.

This is just a faulty product. AMD had those problems since the launch and now, 9 months later, nothing. They are not even close to solving them.

Edit: They probably released them knowing that they have driver issues and hoped they will fix them after the release. The same as they have launched every single Ryzen knowing that it is bugged and far from ready and then desperately patched it over and over, and over. The thing is Ryzen is good and worth buying over Intel. So few bumps here and there wouldn't be too much of a hassle. Radeon sadly, at this moment just isn't.Quote

If my Radeon 7 worked I'd still have it but I went through several as 1 of the first batches was incredibly faulty, Mainly the heatsink not making full contact and after prolonged usage doing damage so it would just give a permanent black screen.

The problem with the R7 is that AMD just used it as a stock cleaner, Cards that didn't quite make the Instinct grade i.e all 4096 CU's operating and the manufacturer of the cooler did an incredibly lazy job on the cold plate, It's fairly concave at points making zero contact, It's why when certain people lapped the coldplate to level it out their temps dropped as much as 30'c as then all of the coldplate was touching the die, Not just 40% of it.Quote
