Anyone using a rig with newer AMD processors and AMD video cards? I'm getting ready to build a new rig and have seen several posts relating to problems with AMD. I'm currently using an old Intel 4770K and RX 580. I occasionally get some unusual artifacts if I tab out and back in. I'll insert a pic. I'm contemplating the latest AMD Ryzen and the RX 5700. It's the best bang for the buck if it WORKS.
Personally, I'd stick with tried and true Intel and Nvidia. I NEVER look at AMD... you get what you pay for... and this is one of those times that is true.
as old as the 4770K is, it's not a bad CPU by no means... you'd probably get rid of those artifacts etc just by swapping out the AMD video card with a Nvidia video card and latest drivers.
NO AMD, NO AMD! The best results for CD are the i7 or 9 platform I'm using 64 GB of RAM and 6 GB NVidia display card. 2019 CD and PP are stable just serious design issues.
We, too, may be blaming AMD for our troubles. My systems is rock solid. I have an NVidia graphics card. My cohort, however, has an AMD video card and her systems crashes or "bombs", as she says, constantly. Been this way for years. We've now convinced the owner to replace that system. Our tech guru is putting a system together. He likes to start from scratch so as to not get bloatware. Says he's not using AMD anymore. We'll see how it goes.
If I had a system that "bombed constantly", and I thought the culprit was an AMD video card, then I would install an NVIDIA card in the same system and see if it continued to "bomb constantly".
