Blender Version
Broken: Blender 2.79 Official release, 2.79 RC1 and RC2, 2.80 build
Worked: All versions before 2.78c(including 2.78c)

Short description of error
Blender doesnt recognise my graphics card as a cycles rendering compute device. Under preferences in the system tab, it only shows NONE. I am aware that my gpu has GCN 1 not 2. But opencl rendering worked perfectly before on all blender versions.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Based on a (as simple as possible) attached .blend file with minimum amount of steps
