Bricking was an AIB issue. AMD drivers are terrible for their video cards. NVidia has their fair share of problems, including a few decade old bugs, but the instances of NVidia having buggy drivers releases often is far less than AMD. Apart from value (cheaper price) and better raster performance today compared to launch and a long time after, what do AMD cards have to offer to consumers? I'm not anti-AMD here, but I don't see the point in spending money on their video cards when there's a better alternative, even if it costs more.
By all means keep living in a world where you think AMD driver stability is on equal footing to NVidia. People love to ignore the problems RDNA has. The only AMD products worth buying are their processors. It's fine. People are free to spend their money however they want, even on an overall inferior product.
