They work pretty well for me. I have an RX 570 (and a Ryzen 5 1600), works great for the most part but in all honesty it did take me a while to find a stable kernel. I'm not sure if that's due to the CPU or the GPU, or just me not knowing what I'm doing. All I play is CS:GO, which runs very well. I've played a bit of Rust too, which also works well.

I can't hear mine at all right now. Hope this helps, Alec
