AMD ProRender addon adds Vulkan Ray-Tracing


bsavery writes:

Today, we are providing a beta preview of Radeon ProRender with Full Spectrum Rendering in our Blender 2.80 addon. This gives artists a viewport that can be scaled from super-fast rasterized to fully ray traced, all with physically accurate materials and lighting. Think of it like a mix of EEVEE and Cycles all in one, powered by Vulkan! You can download the add-on here.


  1. And where' NVIDIA with that super expensive RTX I bought 8 month ago (and now prices dropped half)?

    Some experimental, not fully integrated Optix implementation on F12 while I was hoping MOSTLY for viewport speedup / eevee improvement. Wow, I'm such a loser. FU NVIDIA.

    • Based on post on blenderartist by one of the developers. YES.

      Overall this is great news. Wonder how long before Blender adds "hybrid" rendering to use Eevee and Cycles. :)
