cycles compute setting

  • Dedicated GPU: AMD Radeon R5 M330 (HAINAN), Drivers: radeon + Mesa 17.2.0 obtained from the padoka PPA.
  • Blender Version 2.78c downloaded from blender.org

Tried running with DRI_PRIME=1, running as root, and both at the same time, but none of those worked.

OpenCL rendering with this GPU works on Windows 10 so I am sure my GPU is supported.

As of march 2017 GCN 1.0 is no longer supported for gpu rendering. Because the R5 M330 is using that architecture you won't be able to use it anymore in blender.

  • $\begingroup$ How unfortunate! I think you should edit your question and replace "As of march 2017 GCN 1.0 is no longer supported for gpu rendering" to " All versions made after March 2017 do not support GCN 1.0 for GPU rendering". $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ But the first link you pointed says that: "If you have such a card, use Blender 2.78c downloadable here: download.blender.org/release/Blender2.78" $\endgroup$

2 years later, I found out that it was just because I didn't have OpenCL drivers. I'm using Arch now, so all I had to do is to install opencl-amd from the AUR, and ocl-icd. This still doesn't change the fact that GCN 1.0 support was dropped in 2.79 as Sniperbeer mentioned.
