Radeon Pro WX 5100 Slow Blender Render

my current setup I have a dedicated Radeon Pro WX 5100 card for renders in blender but when I setup the opencl using cycles or AMD Pro Render the render are super slow and depending of the version of blender there are artifacts. is there something I need to enable or check to get faster renders with AMD Gpu's my AMD cpu feel like they render faster than my gpus. I really havent found a good applications in my pipeline that justified the cost of buying this card.  are there any better rendering addon or programs than blender that take advantage of amd gpus?

Try their Radeon Pro-Render for Blender Plug in.

Might be faster tha Blender Cycles, but I am not convinced about it at all and pretty much everyone I know uses Cycles. 

AMD ae way behind in Blender GPU rendering now, and seem tohave given up on OpenCL Compute.
Recent reviews of the RX68/9000XT covered that aspect of the cards.

If you just want them for gaming and rasterization only fine. 

Anything else? forget it. 


I have used the pro render addon and its feels slower than cycles let alone having to learn new render engine. I left maya after the dropping of mental ray and was happy to hear cycles being built into blender I didnt have to worry about having to relearning everything. if I would have known my Radeon Pro WX would have been so useless compared to my RX 590 or even my Ryzen 7 I wouldn't have bought it. I just cant find a good rendering solution for amd cards..
