Thread: GPU Acceleration doesn't work on Radeon5

  1. #1

    Default GPU Acceleration doesn't work on Radeon5


    I have HD5850, why is acceleration not detected, what a pile of junk.

    I will update drivers, but I don't think it will do anything, i updated them 2 months ago, I'm way above the requirements.

    Looks like it detected now.

    I think i didn't had one tick selected for "AMD Decoders and Encoders" previously ... maybe, don't really know, not sure yet if it will in practice.

    I'm very interested to know what you did as I thought the 5800 series wasn't compatible with openCL which is what is needed for GPU acceleration in Sony Vegas. I have the same graphics card and can't get it to work on my system.

    Actually nothing, I have Pro 12.

    I think it was the fact that when I installed the drivers i didn't check all the boxes in Catalyst suite about decoding, i didn't thought I was going to do anything but now I am. it was 13.1 now i have 13.4 version.

    The options says Advanced Micro Devices ... doesn't spell out the name of the card actually but ... i think that's a good sign.

    Also i checked the loading screen and it says Initializing GPU accelleration ... so it ought to work, i haven't finished to do rendering yet, but at first glance, I can see the project loads up WAY WAY faster than before and the thumbnails too.
