Rendering video with Blender on Pop!_os

I have been using blender as a video editor for a few years now, but it has always rendered very slowly. I worry that I’ve installed a few too many drivers and something has gotten mixed up at some point.

For unrelated reasons, I’m about to do an OS re-install so I will have a clean Pop!_os installation with the default video drivers (mesa, if I’m not mistaken).

  1. What version of blender should I install?
  2. What drivers should I install, if any, for my Radeon RX 5600 gpu?
