Last week I installed Blender just to play around with it and discovered that I can’t use my GPU for rendering if I’m using the open source driver.
I read on the wiki that I can install opencl-amd alongside the existing driver to make use of my GPU in Blender, but what I can’t understand is: will opencl-amd be the preferred driver for any opencl program/game if I install it?
And if this is the case, how can I make sure I’m using the open source one when I’m gaming for example?
I play a couple of opencl games and my GPU is not that powerfull, so I can’t afford to loose performance over the proprietary driver (which I know it happens).
If it’s a stupid question I’m sorry, I’m pretty new to manage GPU drivers having been on iGPU for most of my computer life
