ERROR New blender version 2.91 does not start ERROR

Hi guys. The new version of the blender does not want to start. Before that, it was 2.9 and everything was okay. Produces the following in the window: ERROR: EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION. I attach a screenshot with an error. And excuse my english, i’m from russia.

Which graphics card are you using (make, model, driver version)?

Какая видеокарта у Вас? Изготовитель, модель, какая версия драйвера?

Graphics card – amd radeon hd 7500 7600 series. The drivers were updated recently. Everything is alright with them.

Reinstalled version 2.90.1. Everything works great.

Error log file.

Thanks for the update. Unfortunately, that graphics card doesn’t meet the minimum requirements to run Blender. The HD 75xx and 76xx cards are built on TeraScale 2 architecture, while Blender requires cards that are at least GCN1 (HD 77xx and later).

See for example

Thank you for the clarification.

Hello,
Another CRASH victim here. I have mentioned this is the developer blender org but it was closed with the “invalid” flag. Under what circumstances is crashing a valid response? The installer checks for diskspace so perhaps it should check for a valid graphics card and print a human readable error message. I apologize for sounding snarky but I do realize that you are using a lot of time replying to the many people who have crashed systems but if there had been a version which said your graphics card is so old and we won’t support it in six monthes I may have gone out and purchased a card. But with Covid I am not going out, I am waiting for Ryzen 5 and 3070 general availability without buying from ebay. I do know my card is “old”, but why can’t I run on CPU rendering?

Please don’t take this the wrong way. “Invalid” status of a report simply means that it shan’t be treated or tracked as a bug report (since there is no bug). It does not pertain to the behavior of the software itself.

In this case the crash occurs in the GPU driver, the very thing Blender would’ve needed to use in order to even attempt a determination which you suggest. Surely you can see the conundrum here. This is not something the developers can predict or control. There is simply no practical maintainable way of testing each and every GPU.

Blender isn’t using the GPU just for rendering, it is also using it for drawing its own interface, the 3D and 2D viewports. Thus it requires a certain set of features from the GPU, even outside rendering. The concrete subset of features actually utilized is changing from version to version. That is why, for example, you may be able to run an older version of Blender even on an unsupported GPU, but that is also why eventually this could no longer continue, as in this case.

The minimum requirements to run Blender on your system are available via link on the download page, you can always consult them there.

If you know may I inquire as to which specific feature the 2.91 version demands that the 2.9 version functions without ? Must be a very labor intensive or hardware specific function.
Personally I do realize blender would eventually be too sophisticated for my old pc and I would have to scrape more together to get something functional .
And do you know where I can find more info on this particular subject?
Correction I found the requirements.
Second edit: I am running on an AMD radeon hd 8500M which seems to be covered in the supported gpus but im encountering the same error access violation, maybe the requirements havent been updated?
Sorry for all the questions and confusion but this is the only area ive found any substantial information so far.

The requirements are current. If you’re encountering a crash on a supported GPU you should report it at the development portal so that developers are made aware of this problem. Please don’t forget to specify your OS, CPU and exact GPU model and driver version, and attach the crash log that Blender creates.

Thank you for linking the portal, I’ll report it as soon as possible. Maybe they can help but ive also seen other reports of substantial errors in 2.91 seems like they are going to have a very busy week at blender…and thankx for the quick reply.

Please share your bug report status,may be your fix may work for mine too.i own 10year old Amd 5450 terascale architecture GPU which is not currently supported by blender.thankyou.

It seems as though my gpu isnt supported either, blender requirements are in support of gcn 1st gen and newer but amd discontinued driver updates for my gpu in 2016 from what i can find out. And as punchcard mentioned in an above message his bug report was closed with an invalid flag so i assumed the same would apply to me. Im just going to save up and upgrade to a new pc in a few months, i can learn blender on 2.9 without updates or new features i hope.
Sorry if that doesnt help, the above proccess for sending a bug report “development portal” Is a little tedious from the video and “tips” for someone like me who knows very little but you are welcome to try.

But your GPU is GCN first gen card https://www.techpowerup.com/gpu-specs/radeon-hd-8550m.c1905. reporting the problem in portal.

Yeah, maybe someone else will have a similar problem but i really am not that knowledgable in all this architechture stuff all i know is i have a lenovo laptop g50-70 and the display properties says i have a amd radeon hd 8500 m …thats as far as my knowledge goes right now

. But thanks for the card details i couldnt figure out if it for sure was the 8550m.

Yes you have GCN 1st gen card,your card is supported by blender.you can report the bug now here https://developer.blender.org/.
