This is most likely a driver bug and we cannot do much about this. We decided to not support pre-GCN hardware from AMD since they do not offer substantial driver maintenance.

You could try updating your drivers or update to windows 10 but there is not much we can do on our side sorry.

Is there any way I could access an old version of 2.80 that can support this hardware?
