Note :

  • Although Nucoda and Phoenix is not tested with the AMD Range of high end GPU's they should work.
  • Be aware that some manufacturers make use of Nvidia CUDA for performance when debayering or rendering OFX.
  • We will not prioritise any issues or bugs that are related to using AMD GPU's at this time
