Anyone else excited for RX 5950XT?

I don't agree. There was a point where they were pretty bad. But there was like 10 years where they are good or even great. I'd even say they were better than Nvidia's for a long while.
In an ATI period or the AMD era? I recall them being good in the early ATI years, but having problems once the Catalyst or similar era stuff started. I don't recall whether Catalyst was ATI or post-ATI.

I used a lot of their cards from 9700 pro to hd7950. The only time I ever had issues w/ their drivers was crossfire.

Well that's a good experience then! I was not so lucky but really hoping they can pull off a top tier card for obvious reasons.

I'm reasonably excited for all the new AMD stuff.

But tbh, I'm really *REALLY* missing the AM1 platform. I still don't understand why AMD didn't continue it, because it was perfect in so many ways. Tiny SFFs, simple small desktops, htpcs... Under 100 bucks for a quad core CPU and mobo together was hard to beat. So if they bring it back? Gimme a 3500h in a socket and cheap board to match it? The htpc world isn't dead by any means afaik, and such a system would be utterly tiny and could even handle a fair amount of light gaming too (especially once 4xxx APUs drop).

So please AMD, fancy video cards are fun, but don't forget the dream of a single, true, "Everything" SoC.

Sincerely, the proud owner of a 5350.
