Event Timeline

Sebastian Parborg (zeddb) triaged this task as Needs Information from User priority.

Your card is around 9 to 10 years old:
(In addtion, it has a very low amount of memory)

I don't think we support cards this old, @Clément Foucault (fclem) ?

Assuming the drivers are up to date.

Well we should support any hardware that is opengl 3.3 compliant. But MacOSX drivers are way too buggy and not really developed anymore.

Maybe if @Lee A. Butler (butler) would investigate the problem himself (try different scenes, see if it can be isolated). If the problem can be easily worked around we will see what we can do.

Closing since we only officially support macOS 10.12 and higher for Blender 2.80 now.

We keep this bug listed in T61936: EOL GPU problems tracking report in case anyone is interested in fixing it.
