Please test with latest release 2.77a and latest builds from Also make sure you're using latest AMD drivers (from their site, not the ones from Windows Update).

I confirm this is the same problem seen in
Anyway the artifacts are still there running the daily build with R9 390 8 MB NITRO (latest AMD drivers 16.4.2) on Win 10 x64

Problem still appears using daily build (15-05-2016) and AMD drivers ver. 16.5.2 with R9 390 8 MB NITRO on Win 10 x64.

This is a driver failure, and what's annoying is that recently released 16.6.1 does not fix the issue. Commenting out any 5 closures in bsdf_eval() makes kernel to work fine, but not sure if it's red herring or some avalanche type of issue which triggers compiler issue.

Such issues are up to drivers developers, who can bisect code and find which exact change in driver caused this.

Please submit the issue to AMD developers.

For the meantime considering this a TODO, since it's not a blender bug.
