Why so much hassle with AMD GPUs in Bootcamp and pretty much no hassle with nVidia?

Hi folks,

 

Does anyone know why there are so many problems and hassle to solve them (if possible) with AMD GPUs like 5700XT or Radeon VII on Macs with Bootcamp (Windows), while no hassle under macOS with the same GPU and all the time pretty much no hassle with nVidia GPUs in Bootcamp (cuz in macOS nvidia support is dead anyway and not worth mentioning)?

 

Is it the AMD drivers? Apple limitations? What is it?

@andreid2017, I have read its something too do with something called BAR which is something at some level of the GPU, which isn't wildly helpful but its not a macOS/Driver issue.

This link may shed some light on what exactly BAR is.

GTX1060 + AKiTiO Thunder3 + Win10
GTX1070 + Sonnet Breakaway Box + Win10
GTX1070 + Razer Core V1 + Win10
Vega 56 + Razer Core V1 + macOS + Win10
Vega 56 + Mantiz Venus + macOS + W10
