How are they bad? They have great value. Agreed, they definitely still have driver problems but there is mainly nothing wrong with the card (depends on seller though, like PowerColor and Sapphire are good but some are pretty bad, example being the XFX THICC cards).
Why would you buy a card that has driver issues that never might get fixed. Value if you call spending your money on something with known problems value do it but don't try to talk me or somebody else into buying problems. You can spend the same amount for a STABLE card and drivers and loose just a bit of performance.
The 5700 XT is a “stable” card... also, AMD will most likely be fixing their drivers/finding more bugs soon to fix them.
If you have crashes related to drivers it's not stable. For fixing it they have had 7 months not counting the time for development before the cards were released and their still not fixed.
True, AMD isn’t timely fixing it, but the card itself is fine. It’s just the driver that is bad. Also, less crashes are reported, meaning it has somewhat been fixed.
