WARNING GPUCompute: GPU features requested, but no GPU device available

Can someone help me in this problem?

I use Instalod Studio on an iMac 2020, i9 CPU and Radeon 5700XT 16gb, Gpu unit. The warning:(WARNING GPUCompute: GPU features requested, but no GPU device available.Using CPU) appears in the Remeshing job, when I choose to bake with the GPU. If I choose with the CPU, then everything is ok. I would like to know if anyone has encountered this problem and if there is a solution. I mention that I had Instalod XL in evaluation on the same iMac and I never had this issue. Thank you!


Hello Simy,

Welcome to our community!

GPU Baking is a new feature that is not yet supported on all platforms and GPUs. When InstaLOD cannot load the required GPU libraries, it falls back to the CPU bake engine and logs the warning that you have encountered.

Previous versions of InstaLOD supported the CPU bake engine only. Thus, you didn’t see this warning before.

We are planning to support more GPUs with our future updates. In the meantime, you can continue using the CPU baker, which is very fast as well.



Hi Andreas.
Now everything is clear, thank you very much for the quick reply!
