Asus radeon rx5500tx gpu slow blender start

i have seen this issue raised before.however it seems to me that blender favors nvidia and cuda cards.
i find this disturbing as a long time blender user.favoring one corp over another is entirely against the blender principles i know.i know this because i had an nvidia card,and never had an issue.
now that i have upgraded to a better radeon card w/8gb of vram over the 2gb vram i had.suddenly i have issues?i have an 8 core i7 24 gb of ram and said gpu.the answer i saw was use blender2.83 beta.
no change i still have to wait 15-20 seconds for blender to start.and that is with minimal addons.
any help would be appreciated.2.28a takes even longer.
