So what's the latest experience with AMD and linux? I primarily game with a spiffy video card, and the big reason I'd upgrade is so that I could get the spiffy effects in No Man's Sky, and other dx12 games (witcher 3's next gen upgrade, although God only knows how that'll work with proton.) It looks like AMD is benchmarking better than comparable nvidia cards for half the price. Now, I'm not sold on AMD--the times I've tried an AMD card, it's been a crapfest, to put it nicely. (And granted, it was 5+ years ago.) I also do some streaming, although I don't do hardware encoding.

I didn't think AMD cards do raytracing and the like on Linux yet?

AMD Improving The Linux Experience When Running New GPUs Without Proper Driver Support
Written by Michael Larabel. 23 December 2022.
While AMD provided upstream open-source driver support for the Radeon RX 7900 series launch, the initial user experience can be less than desirable if running a new Radeon GPU but initially running an out-of-date kernel or lacking the necessary firmware support. With a new patch series posted AMD is looking to improve the experience by being able to more easily fallback to the firmware frame-buffer when their AMDGPU kernel graphics driver fails to properly load.......

The Old Radeon "R600g" Gallium3D Driver Drops Its TGSI Code Path
By Michael Larabel. 27 April 2023.
...........While the R600g driver hasn't seen any major work by AMD engineers in a number of years now, Gert Wollny has continued to do a nice job making improvements here and there to the driver -- particularly around supporting NIR as is the preferred IR by other modern graphics drivers rather than the aging TGSI...............

This sweetens the deal. (Been eyeing the 6650 XT. Just waiting on good graduation/Father's day sales.)
