Indigo's GPU rendering not working on Macbook Air mid 2015

Post by ErichBoehm » Sat Aug 10, 2019 6:21 am

Hello,

I am trying to render a hefty scene on my Macbook. I figured GPU rendering would speed things along, but when I turn it on, Indigo gets stuck on the "building" part and goes nowhere. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Best regards,
Erich Boehm

Hi Erich,

Intel HD Graphics really do not work well with Indigo. It would probably be slower than the CPU.

Best,
Yves

Does Indigo support eGPUs? Here is the product I am considering purchasing

Hi

Gigabyte Gaming box RX 580 8 g scheda grafica Egpu (gv-rx580ixeb-8gd)
474,11 € https://www.amazon.it/Gigabyte-Gaming-s ... B07CCK527Y

PowerColor Mini Pro RX570 8GB eGPU Thunderbolt3
$479.99 > €432,577 https://www.amazon.com/PowerColor-Mini- ... B07Q4R7GZR

I think the first solution is more convenient because in addition to greater computing power, the power supply is internal.

Best regards
Mac Mini 2011 - 2,3 GHz Intel Core i5
16 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 - Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 Mb.

My Macbook has Thunderbolt 2. Would this work if the solution is Thunderbolt 3? Would the two be backwards compatible?

Hey Erich, short awnser ≠ YES!
( if you plan only on rendering it will work fine, for gaming it wont bcs of lag, you need TB3 for that )
All you need to do is get an Apple adapter TB2 to TB3 and off you go.
