    No problem. Also thanks for the help you gave me.

    What does FWIW mean? I am surprised that the rx 560 has less efficiency than the gtx 1050 in the Dota 2 with vulkan. But thanks, it helps me to go more for the gtx 1050. Although the truth is that I am not yet a 100% user of linux, so I also notice which one is more efficient in windows yet, but I'm sure it served me. Thank you so much.

    AMD GPU pro: it have the driver in kernel so that you don't need to install it after a kernel upgrade.

    AMD GPU cons: my card is an UEFI one and I have an HDMI monitor. It did not work with CSM enabled in BIOS (black screen) only with UEFI. So, after a BIOS update (I have a Ryzen CPU so I update often) I need to change to a DVI monitor and change the BIOS from CSM to UEFI.
    Screen is flickering if you logout and login (X11 and Wayland). I did not find a solution to stop that yet. The only solution is to change resolution and the flickering is gone.

    I did not want what DE you use. KDE did not support wayland very fine yet. Only Gnome.
    So if you really want to use wayland (and Gnome) buy an AMD GPU.
    In any other situation - Nvidia. My opinion is that Nvidia has a better driver (even if you need to install it after a kernel update).

    PS. I did not know how RX 560 works with a DVI monitor.

    Hope that helps.
    Great, you finished helping me decide to go for the gtx 1050. I always use kde less in my startup with ubuntu. I'm going to have to share an adapter from dvi-d to vga and another from hdmi to vga. It should be time to change at least the main monitor hahaha.


    Thank you very much: D

    Glad to have been of some help. FWIW = 'for what it's worth', often used here when the author is not sure of the value of something they want to express, but do so anyway in the hope that it might be.
