You're only one person out of everyone I know along with a seasoned PC builder that would never recommend AMD, ever. At the end of the day, go Nvidia, or go home. Also, the person that had the AMD that didn't last an hour, actually it didn't even last 5 minutes because blew up after booting up for the first time ever. Keep in mind that this is a laptop, so building has nothing to do with this.

I'm using fx 8350/r9 290 and last time I checked my pc was running perfectly. I used a stock cooler for a couple of months and I only made the switch because I had more than enough money and the thing was loud as hell.
I AM NOT AFFECTED BY ELOHELL. NOOBS AND TROLLS NEVER RUIN MY RANKED GAMES.
I DON'T GET STUCK AND I NEVER GET ONLY 2LP FOR A WIN.

My old laptop has an AMD video card iirc and it was still functioning (albeit not well) when I bought my new one, which was exactly 4 years after I got it. >_>

OP is about the living example of the first 22 seconds of this video.

I know choosing AMD over Nvidia is an ignorant choice, but no need to have someone say it for me.

The only valid reason I can come up with would be proprietary Linux driver updates, but I don't think that's a reason for the average user to condemn AMD.

Noise and heat output can be a valid concern if you're either really picky about silent operation or working in a small, enclosed case with little airflow (ITX builds). Also size can be a factor (There are really small ITX 970's while AMD has no high-end ITX cards).

How about this? The only way to get PhysX is to get an Nvidia GPU.

I'm gonna be straight with you. You're acting like a ****ing idiot.
Drop that confirmation bias you got going and you might learn a thing or two.

Lesson one:
BOTH AMD AND NVIDIA MAKE ****TY PRODUCTS(/other stuff).
Case in point, here's an Nvidia card frying itself because of faulty drivers from Nvidia:


The Fermi architecture was famous for overheating. So much so that it was nicknamed Thermi. Here's a meme to remember it by :)

... also, the heatsink looked like a ****ing grill >.>


Lesson two:
Don't be brand-loyal. Look at how the current product compares to other current products, you gain nothing by choosing a product based on brand rather than functionality.
I'm never brand-loyal. I buy the **** that is good when it is good, regardless of the brand.
I have had both AMD and Nvidia GPUs, and AMD and Intel CPUs. Because, believe it or not, none of the three companies have had the best products all the time.
How about this? The only way to get PhysX is to get an Nvidia GPU.

Bwahahahahaha..
Wait, you're serious?
I can number the worthwhile games with PhysX on one hand.

Lesson three:
It's a ****ty marketing ploy, and one of the many things Nvidia does wrong. PhysX is promoting market segregation and hurting consumers. If Nvidia would open source PhysX it would be a different story, but they sit tight on the GPU code for it (they open sourced the CPU part, but they know very well that it runs like arse on the CPU).

Picking Nvidia isn't confirmation bias, it's quality assurance and AMD is just trash. Their hardware belongs in a dumpster. I'm not gonna much into it, that's just the way it is. AMD is a waste of time and money. Also, showing test bench video doesn't prove anything because a test bench isn't a standard gaming situation where Nvideo outshines the competition.

The thing is, they shouldn't outsource it. We don't need AMD blabbering about their chipset even more while it overheats. Go Nvidia, or go home.
