Hi, I recently bought a Radeon R9 390x and when I am rendering the test scenes, Indigo crashes after 2 min.
The GPU load jumps from 0% to about 80% and back. I thought that AMD would be a good choice because of the bigger allocation limit and the 8GB of Vram, should I better go with a GTX 1070 or will the problems with the Hawai GPUs be fixed in the Future. I hope for a statement of the devs.

Hi Vasco,
Does Indigo give an error message or just crash? Does it crash on all scenes?

I have had the very same issues with my R380, which disappeared the moment I tried it on Linux.

Hi Ono,
indigo just crashes, just tested the mclaren scene. I send the card back now and will wait for the GTX 1070 a few days. The R9 390x became very hot, made a lot of noise and the power consumption is twice as high as the GTX 1070 so I think its the better choice.

Do you realize the 480 releases in 2 weeks at $199?

This is the issue i described with my R9 290.
And it exceeds the limit of both VRAM and RAM.

Hi, I don't know exactly how much VRAM the 480 has but I don't think that it will have 8 GB, so I ordered a GTX 1080 now for testing because I would also like to play Games in 4K in the future and when new exporters for indigo are ready and I upgrade my v3 license I would like to render bigger scenes on GPU. I wonder if the allocation limit on nvidia cards is bad when it comes to bigger scenes.
Also I sometimes use cycles and the opencl support is not that good in the moment.

Nvidia can only allocate 25% where ATI can allocate 65%.Which would mean 2Gb for a 8Gb Nvidia one against 2.6Gb for a 4Gb ATI.

Not entirely true, Nvidia can (for now) only allocate 25% per allocation. Indigo does multiple allocations when rendering a scene, so the problem is not as big as one might think.

Is this before or after tax? When its before tax I think the 8GB card will cost in germany around 300€.

I've got both gfx boards on Linux! :D Still I'm quite baffled just how fast it is on OSX. Linux seems to be the best responsive system.
