    This could be true, although there's no night vs. day difference. Where I find AMD Radeon falling short is in support. I bailed on them a few years back when they didn't come up with Windows 8.0/8.1 drivers for one of their older video cards I had. NVIDIA was immediately on the ball with support for an even older card with one of their chips (I'm still using it with Windows 10 Pro in my #2 Insider PC).

    I'm now used to AMD graphics as much as with AMD systems and switching to anything else would require a lot of learning (last one was 8600). Long time ago, ATI and it's Radeon line have really bad support and even lousy drivers and controls but since AMD took over situation is much, much better. New drivers are being released all the time even just to fix problems with new games or just to ad functionality to them and system as OS changes are implemented. They were first to comply with Dx12 for instance. Bitcoin miners use AMD GPUs for it almost exclusively which makes it tricky to get a used card although true BC miners do take care of them, undervolt them and keep them clean changing TIM often. After all they are their tools to make money.

    ATI/AMD & nVidia both make great GPUs and I have used both over the years from XP to W10, one of my fave ATI cards was the HIS HD 4670 IceQ 512MB (128bit) DDR3

    I buy only AMD, for 15 years, because of performance/price ratio. I never even consider Intel/Nvidia.
    I always wonder about people, who like to experiment, like AMD + Intel + Nvidia, they are asking for trouble.

    I've had so many of both over the years, favorites were 9800Pro, X1950XT, HD4890, HD7970 and current R9-290X.
    However, I loved the 8800GTX back in the day.
    Never had much driver issues with either one, usually used optimized drivers via 3rd party enthusiasts.....

    AMD GPUs age great like a fine wine. I have a Radeon HD 4890 on my second computer and it's running great!

    My experience with AMD R9 270x is really bad, i got a faulty card, one of those faults that shows every 6th week, with grey or greens vertical lines all over my screen. And as the shop where i bought the card from could not reproduce the error so he refused to take it back. Because he had to pay AMD if the card was ok and he returned it...

    I've only had one Nvidia and about 5 Radeons. And I'm very happy with my new R9 390 8gb.

    AMD doesn't sell cards to public, there's no real AMD video card, they are all made by different companies using AMD base cards or only GPU. So you may have had Asus, Gigabyte, MSI or other card and they are responsible for their products not AMD.
