I’ve been trying to find a blender version that supports my old GPU so I can learn basics of creating simple mesh, maybe low-poly sculpting. I have AMD HD 5850 card which is really old. I know I can’t render the most realistic scenes with this gpu, my aim is to produce simple meshes to export and use inside unreal engine; low poly props and generic models for a game I’m trying to develop.
So far I tried versions (almost everything) since blender v2.78, including experimental builds. I’ve tried using:
--debug-value 256 and the other
Set CYCLES_OPENCL_TEST=ALL methods. While I can see the gpu being listed on system tab of settings, I see no load and no difference between render times switching back to CPU only/deselecting gpu.
Can you suggest me a blender version that utilizes my gpu? I will leave it’s gpu-z snapshot here
