  • $\begingroup$ What GPU are you using? It's likely that it isn't supported or that the driver is not up-to-date. $\endgroup$ – Robert Gützkow Dec 7 '19 at 14:22

Graphics cards from the Radeon HD 6000 series are not supported, since they use the old TeraScale 2 architecture. Blender 2.8x requires GCN first generation or later when using AMD GPUs.

Supported Graphics Cards

These requirements are for basic Blender operation, rendering using the GPU requires slightly different requirements. Always make sure to install the latest drivers from the graphics card manufacturer website.

  • NVIDIA: GeForce 200 and newer, Quadro Tesla architecture and newer, with NVIDIA drivers (list of all GeForce and Quadro GPUs)
  • AMD: GCN 1st gen and newer (list of all AMD GPUs)
  • Intel: Haswell and newer (list of all Intel GPUs)
  • macOS: version 10.12 or newer with supported hardware

  • $\begingroup$ Oh. Thank You for your help. This Might be the Reason but. I got blender eevee working on windows 10 with The same hardware I never Thought that changing My os Would solve the problem $\endgroup$ – Mohamedhany Dec 7 '19 at 19:37
  • $\begingroup$ It might work with the most recent graphics driver, but Blender doesn't provide support for them in case it doesn't work properly. $\endgroup$ – Robert Gützkow Dec 7 '19 at 21:40
