Concerns about the 6900 XT

Hey everyone, I am planning to buy a 6900 XT but I have never used AMD in my life I always used Nvidia. So my first question is AMD is known with drivers issues are these fixed with Radeon 6000? Also I see a lot of people complaining on reddit about their 6900 XT for like FPS Drops or low GPU usage etc.. Is buying this card safe? Does anyone in this forum use a 6800/6900 XT that could share theri experiences? Should I go with Nvidia instead? Thanks.

I used the 6800xt before and honestly it is a brilliant card to have. It even outplays the 3080 sometimes. But if you are a fan on ray tracing then go for team green

I wouldn't worry too much about it. Not because AMD doesn't have driver issues, but because Nvidia most definitely have driver issues too...

Thanks for reading all this by the way!

By the way, my desktop is a docked laptop. Get over it, No seriously, I have an exterrnal monitor, keyboard, mouse, headset, ethernet and cooling fans all connected. Using it feels no different to a desktop, it works for several hours if the power goes out, and disconnecting just a few cables gives me something I can take on the go. There's enough power for all games I play and it even copes with basic (and some not-so-basic) video editing. Give it a go - you might just love it.

You can't go wrong with any of the cards. AMD drivers may not be as polished but they are a lot better then they used to be

Would you say that if I prefer higher framerates over more detail settings turned on, then the 6800XT is a better option for me? Or, AMD cards in general? Also might be worth nothing I play at 1440p since that's my monitor's native resolution. Can't go down to 1080p, need higher than that for work screen real estate. If I recall, higher res means higher stress on the card almost linearly with respect to number of pixels.

AMD's driver issues, I have never had any. I've been using AMD for 4 years and my rx 560 896sp and my RX 5600XT have run issueless.

Is it plugged in? Is it turned on? Are you sure? No, really.
