drivers – No compatible AMD Radeon GPU detected on Blender

Good day all,

I am on Ubuntu 20.04 and trying to figure out what my gpu version exactly is.

1, Checking my system, it reads:

Processor: AMD® Ryzen 3 2200u with radeon vega mobile gfx × 4
Graphics: AMD® Raven

On that note: A youtuber showed how to install driver to change the Graphics to AMD@Radeon by using release-notes/rn-amdgpu-unified-linux-20-20 . I attempted this, and did crash the Ubuntu … I then did reinstall the OP …

  1. Lately, working on Blender Rendering function, I checked what Blender recognized:

Cycle render devices: CUDA, OptiX, Open CL => “No compatible GPUs found for path tracing, cycles will render on the CPU”

enter image description here

  1. Checking the tutorial “How to check current AMD Radeon driver version” on linuxconfig.org => amd-radeon-ubuntu-20-04-driver-installation after running the commands up to: glxinfo -B, the terminal gives:

Vendor: AMD (0x1002)
Device: AMD RAVEN (DRM 3.40.0, 5.11.0-22-generic, LLVM 11.0.1) (0x15dd)
Complete set of commands and output: https://pastebin.ubuntu.com/p/zwD8pVSmsM/

  1. Finally, I did ask previously about installing the right driver. The response was that Ubuntu 20.04 has already all the drivers pre-installed and I should not venture into doing this as (1) it wont improve much the performances (2) taking risk to create some conflicts …

I am new to Linux and Ubuntu. The goal being to have the GPU working on Blender Rendering function (.. instead of THE CPU), What would the best course of action be ?

Thx in advance for your input
