I have a Dell Precision 7740 running on Ubuntu 18.04 Linux with an AMD/ATI Radeon Pro WX 7100 graphics card and a much less powerful Intel UHD Graphics 630 (Mobile). I'd like to utilize the graphics card to help speed up Blender renders. However, under the "System > Cycles Render Devices" setting, I see a "No compatible GPUS found for path tracking. Cycles will render on the CPU."
Given this card and os, what options do I have to optimize my renders and take full advantage of the GPU?
I've encountered the https://www.amd.com/en/technologies/radeon-prorender-blender project. Is this a viable option? (Though I imagine it would be a different rendering engine to learn apart from Cycles and Eevee).
Any thoughts are much appreciated. Thank you
