Woops... came out wrong, I meant about AMD... I wasn't ever a fan until recently. ;)
Hahaha that I can agree with you on.

I am seriously considering AMD for my next box (probably next year). I looked up the performance of the open source vs the proprietary drivers. It appears that the open source perform roughly equal and in some cases even better. I am wondering now if I could get away with using the open source drivers (that would be very nice). Unfortunately my demands are quite high (Stream, UnrealEngine), not only in performance but also in stability and functionality. Anyone any opinions on that?

Do the AMD drivers come with a monitoring tool (for temperature and such)? Since I am living in an air-condition-less hellhole (entire south facing wall basically one big window) being able to keep an eye on these kinds of things can be sometimes important to me.

I run some pretty heavy duty games using the AMD and haven't had a moment where I was like.. shit, something is missing or glitching. Mankind Divided, Xcom2, the new Unreal Tournament '17 demo builds.. it all just works and well.

Still a good while until I have to make a decision. But I will keep that in mind.
