Not in all use cases (yet)... they still don't have a very compelling GPU compute story on Linux. There are reasons they've only made a minor dent so far and compute is one of them. As soon as they do, I'll be happy to switch my systems as I do like the direction AMD has been going the last couple of years on the driver front but they still have more work to do before it's viable for me.

OpenCL AMD story has been rather flaky until recently, but supposedly ROCm is the most complete and open option there is now. You can also use Vulkan for compute purposes as far as I know. And Vulkan support isn't behind Nvidia in any way.

Some further Vulkan+OpenCL interop is still planned by Khronos.
