I have a laptop with old gcn 1 amd gpu
on windows, it says
Radeon R5 M330, it's not
R5, just a rebranded ATI card
$ sudo lspci -v 01:00.0 Display controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Sun XT [Radeon HD 8670A/8670M/8690M / R5 M330 / M430 / R7 M520] (rev 83)
basically, a hainan card
these penny pinchers at hp have given me a "mobile" card rebranded more than 6 times !!! , they also did this with the wifi card btw, I mean yeah what should I expect at this price ?
so, my question is can I use this card with blender (for cycles rendering)? I know blender has dropped support for old cards, but I think there is still some alt render engine that supports this card, or perhaps an old version of blender ...
any help is appreciated...
