I'm very new to blender and am trying to follow a beginners tutorial but the person who made the video said to use GPU compute for rendering. I recently got a RX 5700 XT for Christmas and figured it's powerful enough for this sort of thing. I'm trying to see what my scene looks like before I output it. CPU rendering works fine with Cycles, but as soon as I switch to GPU compute blender hangs indefinitely. I tried searching the web but I can only find issues dating around to this cards release date. Its the new year and I'm still having the same problem. Is there an issue I'm unaware of or can I get this fixed?
Currently running Blender 2.81a
I attached a video of the issue occurring.
In event viewer I get the error "Display driver amdkmdap stopped responding and has successfully recovered." Event ID 4101
