Are these builds from or homebuild/distro build?

I have downloaded and build Blender 2.8.0 from here:

The 2.79 one is from Manjaro repository, installed with pacman.

please try with a build from, just to rule out a distro specific packaging issue.

I tried this before but just got an error massage in terminal when I tried to start the application. Now I downloaded and started Blender 2.8 again from and the problem is solved. I even can start now the previous downloaded and unpacked 2.8er version and see all GPUs. I don't understand it, but nevertheless thank you for your help!

Same problem with the new update of Blender (31 december)
I have tried the version of the 25 october and it's good, but with the last versions (new preferences interface) it doesn't work !!!

Different issue, for mac opencl support has been dropped

I also have Manjaro, but downloading from builder doesn't help.
Should I open new issue? I've got AMD GPU (Radeon RX470). It worked before, I see significant loss of performance.

Got the same issue with GTX 1050, windows 7, and the latest GPU driver, is there any news?
