Interesting. When I got my first all-Linux, all the time box in 2008 it was a crapshoot to go with AMD/ATI hardware. Although I have had some compatibility issues in the past, the reliability of AMD has never been a problem. Now it looks as if AMD is becoming the default choice for FOSS hardware.

Yeah I'd be pairing an RX580 with an R5 2600 or so, not a Threadripper. He wouldn't have any CPU bottlenecking issues.
