bought some AMD stocks months ago best decision ever... seems it's doing very very well

I think this whole thing is because AMD has had stellar earnings on 2021 so far.

QuoteFurther, with Intel’s INTC +0.7% next-generation chipsets delayed, AMD stands to benefit further. This is evident from AMD’s Q1 2021 earnings, where revenue grew nearly 2x from $1.79 billion in Q1 ’20 to $3.45 billion in Q1 ’21, driven primarily by an almost 4x jump in enterprise, embedded and semi-custom revenue, from $348 million to $1.35 billion.
they doubled their earnings on 2021, awesome 😎😎

Everyone is buying their Ryzen processors. I just bought one and I've only ever had Intel before this. Now all they need to do is convince people to buy their GPUs...

We aren't convinced yet? :)

When you look at the Steam survey, AMD only has 16%.

Even during this GPU shortage, you can still get an AMD GPU if you want.

Sadly, games are developed with NVidia in mind and AMD as a second thought. Because of this, I won't consider an AMD GPU and honestly it would take a lot to convince me and apparently most gamers as well to make the switch.

None of this changes the fact that we (Linux gamers or at least GOL members) seem to be increasingly buying AMD GPUs. So at least some of us don't need any convincing. That was my entire point.

For what it's worth, I'm personally very happy I switched to AMD a few years back.

If it would be on windows maybe there is some argument there, but with Vulkan being vendor neutral, there is no reason to buy an Nvidia gpu on linux. Valve and other companies invest a lot of development on amdgpu open drivers, in fact most of the DXVK and proton developers use AMD gpu's . Imho if there's a bug in some dxvk game it's probably going to get fixed more rapidly on AMD than on Nvidia. The case of Cyberpunk 2077 not working properly on Nvidia Gpu's attest what I affirm, and I think this is going to continue happening.
Performance-wise AMD drivers are on par with Nvidia drivers. I have a 5600xt and sometimes on some benchmarks it's beating a 2060 super. The only reason for getting an Nvidia Gpu would be RTX, but only if you need it right now, RTX support on AMD gpu's will be sorted in the coming months probably.
Also they say that next gen navis RX 7xxxx will have a huge increase in performance and the rumour says that they are beating Nvidia cards on RTX.
So if you are still not convinced then wait for next year release of next gen cards, from what I read, they would be twice as faster, than the previous generation (let's hope it's not twice as faster in nvidia language lol, because that's bs)
