My graphics card is AMD Radeon HD 6800 series. Can it rendering on GPU? And if it so, how to do it? Rendering animations on CPU it's veeeeeeery for a long time. 1 frame ~ 7-15 minutes & it's only 100 samples.


Update: Here are the official list of AMD card that Blender supports for OpenCL. It does not have Radeon HD 6800.

OpenCL Supported Devices

It is likely that Blender does not support HD 6800 for GPU rendering.

I am going to assume the following:

  1. You are using Blender 2.76 (latest as of 14/03/16).
  2. You are using Cycles Render.

To use GPU render on Cycles Render, you need to enable OpenCL in Blender.

To do so, you need to:

  1. Go to "User Preferences" (Ctrl+Alt+U)
  2. Go to "System" tab.
  3. Under "Compute Device", click on "OpenCL".
  4. In the scroll box, choose your GPU.

User Preferences

When you render the next time, select GPU.
