Any issue with recent AMD GPU's?

Having had a GTX 970 and then reading about the 1070, I was wondering if AMD have had issues with there GPU lineup recently, that would be helpful when deciding which GPU's to consider?

There was the small issue with the Rx 480 power draw through the PCI lanes. It however has been solved by later AMD drivers, and with aftermarket PCBs including an 8 pin power input rather than the reference 6 pin.

Going purely off anecdotal evidence, I tend to see about a proportional number of issues (topics in GPU or troubleshooting forums) between AMD and nvidia graphics cards. (I see more issues with nvidia cards, but there are also more people buying them so the incidence rate of problems is probably equal). This is in no way scientific. I kept track for a short time about 4 months ago and it was about 4 to 1 - nvidia to AMD for troubleshooting.
