Blender 3 GPU drivers for AMD Radeon Pro WX 7100?

The newly released Blender 3.0 is said to take support for AMD GPUs to the next level, which I have been very happy to test as a very appreciated feature since OpenCL is not the vere fastest. But, my Radeon PRO WX100  is a pretty new model, but as I can see the support for that adapter is lost totally? I can not take advantage of the new "better support" and "Cycles X", or am I missing something??

Best

Maybe AMD Forum's Moderator on Professional GPU Cards can help @fsadough otherwise you can try and check AMD ProRender Forum and see if anyone there can answer your question: https://community.amd.com/t5/blender-discussions/bd-p/blender-discussions

Even though the above like is for Blender Plug-in for ProRender program.

Re: Blender 3 GPU drivers for AMD Radeon Pro WX 7100?

Blender supports GPU rendering on discrete graphics cards with the AMD RDNA architecture or newer and AMD Radeon Software 21.12.1 or AMD Radeon PRO Software 21.Q4 GPU drivers or newer.

Support GPUs include:

  • AMD Radeon RX 5000 Series

  • AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series

  • AMD Radeon Pro W6000 Series

Radeon Pro WX7100 is based on GCN Architecture and not RDNA

Thanks for answer. So, the correct term would be "newest" GPU architectures rathern that "new". Because, in my world a professional high-end graphics card, invested in less than 2 years ago is still new architecture, even if there offcourse always going to be newer/newest architecture available. So, my investment in AMD professional gx adapter despite Nividia-people trying to convince me that Nivida CUDA is the path to follow for rendering, was not very wice. I don't have the money for another investment in graphics card.

 

Thanks anyway

@fsadough, can the OP use ProRender with a Blender Plug-in since I believe ProRender is compatible with all RX GPU Cards.

Or is that different then using Blender by itself?

Regarding ProRender crach with new Blender 3.0:

  • Which OS?
  • Which GPU driver is installed?
  • Which ProRender version is being used?

So, the W5700 is not supported, still it is RDNA architecture?

That one cost "only" about €1000 and would have been almost affordable.
