Open cl processor

Post by Ezearebalo » Tue Oct 02, 2018 3:51 am

Hi im searching some "new" processor. But i dont understand something. The cpu need to have open cl 2.0 capability to speed up renders ? Look the image, i7 and fx 6300 doesnt have it ? I should buy a brand new processor ? Thanks

No. LuxCore uses native C++ code for CPU devices, OpenCL is only used for GPUs.
Also, the integrated GPUs in modern CPUs are not really capable of running LuxCore.
Support LuxCoreRender project with salts and bounties
