I’ve been having problems recently trying to use the GPU Compute setting in 2.83 Cycles. I’ve been hearing that it’s an issue with AMD’s drivers (I just upgraded to a 4GB card with RadeonRX550) that’s causing it. To wit, this is what happens- I click the rendered option in the viewport, wait a few minutes as it loads the render kernels, then this:
After that, it loads in the materials and textures, then freezes my computer completely until I do a forced reboot. I don’t know what’s causing it or how to fix it beyond avoiding the use of that setting or buying a Nvidia card. And before anyone asks, the drivers are recent, so that’s definitely not the issue I’m having.
