Messy textures with AMD RX 6700 XT

Dear all,

I recently had to replace my GPU (AMD FirePro W9100) with a new one (AMD RX 6700 XT), now textures come up quite messy in Rendered view:

… while they look correct in Raytracing view:

Is there any setting I have to deal with?

Hi Cyana -
Please attach your SystemInfo data and a small 3dm test file that shows this behavior on your system.

I’ve exported some of the tubes into the attached file. In rendered view, they show up completely black. In raytracing view, they have their correct white weathered texture.
Thank you for your help.

Any news?

Hi Cyana -

On my end, the Raytraced and the Rendered display modes are pretty much identical:

Does your Raytraced view look similar?

If it does, you could first try to disable the SimLab Composer plug-in and restart Rhino. If that doesn’t help, I would try a clean install of the GPU drivers. You can follow these instructions to do that:

Make sure to include step 4 of the uninstalling process!

Hi Wim,

thank you for your reply. Your displays appear to be correct.

This is how it looks on my side:

Raytracing is the correct one.

I’ve deactivated the SimLab Composer plugin, however this did not cure the problem. The GPU driver is freshly installed as this is a brand new GPU. It seems that the AMD RX 6700 XT might not be fully supported (it also crashes when using ProRender) ?

best greetings and thanks
