I'm running Blender 2.79 on Windows 10 Home Edition


  • Processor: i7-4790 CPU @ 3.60GHz
  • 8,00 GB RAM
  • AMD Radeon R9 270 (latest drivers)
  • Intel HD Graphics 4600 (latest drivers)
  • OPEN CL Version 23.20.15015.1002

According to the BlenderWiki Page, my graphics card should be supported for rendering in Cycles, but OPEN CL doesn't show in user preferences, I'm not a pro with PCs, I try to do things on my own a lot, but this issue is above my head, I can't figure out how to render with GPU...


I think you need to go into user preferences>system> and in the bottom left corner there is Cycles Compute device. Turn this to open CL. Then back to main interface go to render > device and you will see a drop down says cpu. Use drop down and it will give you the option of gpu. Hope this helps!

  • $\begingroup$ All i get when i go to user preferences>system>cycles compute device is a blue toned button that says NONE, i know i have open CL in my Radeon settings, but for some reason it doesn't show in Blender $\endgroup$ – Ronald1968 Feb 2 '18 at 23:31
