CUDA_ERROR_ILLEGAL_ADDRESS device_optix.cpp:769

It happens from time to time when I use the rendered view. This time, I had opened the Task Manager, and there had been 3GB of free VRAM, so it was not because of VRAM exhaustion. Once this happens, the rendered view does not work and rendering does not work either. I have to restart Blender. Is this a bug?

I’m facing the same issue, did you fix the problem?

No. It kept happening when I used 10 for the strength of the HDRI and used Rendered preview mode. I lowered the strength to 5 and it did not seem to happen… yet.
