I read the link and most of the reviewers complained about the drivers, is it that bad?
Most reviews are posted after NDA lifted and at a very early stage. Now it should be a lot better. You should try to find more current reviews to determine the state of the driver.

Amd or ati driver is always not very good. I have been using rx570 for a couple of yr... some new driver do not work well on some games... i have issue with tomb raider, wolfenstein new blood etc... i need to play around with some older driver to get the game running.. sometime i really think i should ger rtx2070 instead...
Driver is a hit and miss thing. Both Nvidia and AMD will botch up driver releases. In this case, it is based on a new architect and thus, expected to be a bumpy start. Not that it is acceptable, but this is something not uncommon for early adopters.

same.. I've been mainly using ati/Amd gpu lol.. from 9600pro to 4850 to 4870 to 7770 then now rx5700xt lol.. the only Nvidia card that I used was 6600gt iirc

AMD drivers have been much maligned in many forums I go to. Many users, including yours truly, have had very little issuel with AMD drivers.....and AMD drivers aren't known for killing GPU's like the other.

I've been using AMD GPU's, not exclusively as I've been know to dabble with nVidia (now have a GTX1080 in my HTPC rig), and other than a couple of drivers for my older AMD GPU's from years ago, I've had no issue with their recent drivers. I believe the issue has to do with the 5700 series being rather new, give them time to polish the drivers.....

It's legacy reputation that dies hard. ATI drivers were a PITA for my first two cards, switched to TnT and was so satisfied that I never switched back from green camp for a few gens even during ATI's popular models. Fortunately when I finally switched back at 3870, it didn't give me much trouble but the old experience stuck cos whenever I get some oddball behavior, it was always hovering at the back of my mind... damn must be the ATI drivers...

I started with ATI (not AMD) since the ISA (not PCIe) Mach 32, then Vesa Local Bus Mach 64, PCI Mach 64, Rage, Rage 3D, Rage 128, 9500pro, 1950XT, 2900XT, HD3850, HD4870, HD5000/6000 series (can't check from Windows 10) then no upgrade for quite a while until now waiting for AIB RX5700 series.
Have used Creative Banshee, Nvidia GeForce (1st version), GeForce Pro but didn't like the 2D display and colors, after that ATI/AMD all the way.

I've heard this too, that ATi/AMD somehow has better color reproduction. I can't say for sure, one way or another, but I do prefer ATi/AMD and keep going back to it.

I'd actually started out with nVidia, let's see:
Riva TNT, GF2 MX400, GF4 MX440, Abit GF4 4200 Ti, ATi 9700 Pro, Hercules 9800Pro, FX5900, MSI GF 6800 Ultra, GF 7950 GX2, 2x HD 2900XT, HD3870 X2 + HD3870, 2x HD5870, 2x HD5970, 2x PowerColor R9 290X, LeadTek GTX1080, 3x VEGA64 (2x GB Gaming OC, 1x PowerColor Red Devil)

These are the cards that I can remember owning, may have missed one or two here and there, memory (bad RAM) is kinda fuzzy now. Anyway, I still have the two 9 290X, GTX1080 and the three VEGA64

I'm using 19.8.1 since I installed my sapphire pulse 5700 xt and no problems so far. I'm lucky I guess. Do note that I also swapped out my MB, cpu and ram, I only kept my ssd, hdd and psu. I don't know if that affects anything.
