You know you're golden when you make your decisions off of slick deal comment sections
Lmao - the comment section clued me into the POTENTIAL heat issues and noise. Then I did my own research on the brand 5700xt I had I forget the model. Hardware unboxed and gamer nexus + linus had me checking temps and I was running acceptable temps but on the high side of normal without any heavy GPU stress so I imagine it would have crept into danger territory with heavy gaming. Technically speaking I NEVER had any issues with the card. Never make any decisions on a comment section anywhere I prefer doing my own research but comments can give you clues on what to look out for.

I tried a few 5700 flavors of these and they all left a bad taste in my mouth. Switched to 2070s and haven't looked back. Yes it cost more, but how much is your time worth? All of them ran 🔥 too. My 02
The one common denominator among multiple cards is YOUR SYSTEM. I have a 5700 and it runs fine.

True, I am tired of black screens and shutdowns with 5700 series. I have used a lot of these cards in different builds, mostly XFX, with good reliable 700-750W PSUs. Still some games cause complete shutdowns and in other cases other problems. Every time I switched to 2070 problems went away.
I bought the xfx raw II 5700xt for 369.99 (was wierdly on sale at bb for this price) and that is pretty stable and quiet. Coming from 1070.

Don't know about other engines, but my Blizzard games (Diablo 3 and Hearthstone) crash to black screen and unrecoverable randomly. I have to hard reset every time, lost all progressions and winning matches. Asus agreed to exchang to the RTX 2070 Super from that crappy ROG 5700 XT.

So please explain why the 2070s runs perfectly. The only common denominator is the AMD driver. Once I removed it and replaced with Nvidia my "system" ran perfect. Coming from someone who preferred the AMD card in my AMD "system". The issues are documented all over the internet. If you don't run your games in "windowed" mode your bound to get a black screen. The hardware runs hot, and the drivers are garbage. Facts.

You have a guide?
I have a 5700 XT that is crashing too. I haven't gotten home to try it yet but I suspect this is what they were talking about: https://support.microsoft.com/en-...-windows-7

Sometimes it could be a shitty QC.. after all AMD mfg's have been caught screwing up the cooling parts of a few specific cards

Again, yours is not the typical experience, otherwise Hardware Unboxed would have reported as much. Mine runs quiet at 65c. I did have black-screens months ago but changed a few in-game settings and it disappeared.

You have validated my point. You shouldn't have to "change" anything. I installed the 2070s and never had another issue. If you want to constantly change things or tinker, the 5700/xt is an excellent value. If you want stability, go Nvidia until AMD gets their drivers fixed. A great piece of hardware overshadowed by bad software and temperature issues.

I got the XFX 5700 DD ultra from Amazon on sale for 250$ with Amex promo .
Here are my observations :
1. Card ran perfectly fine with stock config.. No black screens , no over heating .. Fans at 1800 RPM , temps at 65-68, core clock at 1800 MHZ
2.Then I used morepowertool , over clocked it to 2150 MHZ, memory to 1810 MHZ. Saw 15-18% jump in performance. But card was getting hot with GPU temps touching 82, and junction at 103.
3. Called Amazon for replacement , they didn't have card in stock . Amazon arranged a call with XFX and XFX asked me to check thermal pasting and reapply it.For all this trouble Amazon refunded me 70$ back and asked me to return the card if the solution provided by XFX didnt work . That brought card cost to 180$.
4.Just as I was thinking to open the card , I observed that it was sucking around 190W of power and sometimes even 210W. So I undervolted to 1040V(before it was 1185V) and updated Radeon driver to 20.2. Temps dropped to 65-68, core clock at 2050MHZ, memory at 1810 MHZ, Junction temp at 85 with same 15-18% performance delta. Max power used was at 160W with average around 130-140W.
5.But now I started to see lot of black screens , game crashes (playing AC Odyssey ). It was very frequent .I thought it was drivers as with low voltage settings , the game didn't crash during first few initial days.
6. I increased the voltage to 1065V now and it hasn't crashed from past 2 days. keeping my fingers crossed .

So wit AMD cards people also meddle a lot , which might also cause issues. I know AMD has also publicly acknowledged black screen issues !!

I have this card. Bought it for 357 on Rakuten in October. Gamed for 1080p for a while, then got a 1440p 144hz on prime day. So I've been using it like that for 3 months.

The card can get loud, but if you correctly use Radeon Chill, it won't get abnormally hot at all. Im running it on stock voltage/clocks etc. Great performance especially for this price it can't be beat.

And AMD initially had trouble with their 5700 drivers. Most issues have been fixed. I would buy this card again.

All things considered, no there's nothing specific. Some have very few or no problems some swear up and down they never got one to work.

The thing is both manufacturers have issues. If you check out the tech support threads and chats you'll actually see more RTX user issues because they are the most popular currently, not because there's a quality or software problem specifically effecting everyone.

Not discounting those who are having issues, but "YMMV" effects all hardware decision choices. This isn't Apple where you pay specifically to take the guess-work out of it.

Back in the day "problems" with drivers or software usually got fixed rather rapidly(issues that could be fixed if one gave a crap), as a mfg or software companies' reputation lived and died on quick fixes.. now it seems like these issues are left twisting on social media longer. Video cards are arguably more expensive (but lesser long term value)than other components with shittier support, at least on the amd side. This is why I'm in part waiting for mfg support and hardware quality to mature into a better long term value. Fwiw, every time I see AMD cards getting closer to my budget price, ANOTHER cluster f#@& of issues rears its head! Just search Newegg or Amazon reviews...

Don't get me wrong, I wish we could just blame one thing (e.x. drivers) for every problem but it's not that simple unfortunately.
