My apologies if this has been already tried but I personally always use regular 
Linux with black magic binary drivers unacceptable to plain Guix distribution. 

My AMD (both CPU and Graphics card) computer's visuals will freeze without the 
modification of the settings to avoid LibreLinux that comes standard with Guix.

Recent AMD video cards appear to have out of the box native drivers built into 
the Linux Kernel - that's why replaced Nvidia with AMD 😄.   I have a 
stress-free graphics environment using Guix OS and Regular Linux.  (There was 
text terminal latency issues with X11 so I use Wayland - it has its limitations 
and bugs but works better for me😄)
