Redshift Support for AMD Radeon

by Anne

Maxon has announced that artists can now use select AMD Radeon™ PRO graphics cards with its production-class Redshift render engine. The engine now offers high-performance rendering via AMD (HIP), Apple (Metal) and Nvidia (CUDA) technologies. Morever, anyone can work with Redshift materials and rendering thanks to Redshift CPU announced last week.

The AMD dedicated GPU programming environment, Heterogeneous Interface for Portability (HIP) is designed for programming high performance kernels on GPU hardware. HIP is a C++ runtime API and programming language that allows easy migration from existing CUDA® code. This means that developers can write their GPU applications and, with very minimal changes, be able to run their code in any environment with comparable performance across platforms.

Redshift also supports rendering with mixed devices like RS CPU and AMD Radeon™ PRO graphics cards, opening possibilities for individuals or studios with a variety of hardware setups – whether it is Nvidia on one machine, AMD on another, or CPU only.

Redshift on AMD GPU Requirements and Availability

To run Redshift on the supported AMD pro W6800  graphics card will require the AMD Software: PRO Edition 22.Q1 driver available from the ADM website later this quarter. Redshift is also validated on the AMD Radeon™ PRO VII graphics card. Both AMD Software and Redshift support for AMD Radeon PRO graphics cards on Windows are currently in a closed technology preview and development is actively ongoing.
