Worked: Have not tried any of the nightly builds.

Short description of error
I have rendered a scene using my CPU and GPU through the OpenCL path tracing option in preferences. The Cycles render has difference in amount of noise and light between the tiles rendered by CPU and those rendered by GPU. This mostly happens only if I have volumetrics and transluscency in the scene. Scenes that have only diffuse, gloss, refraction and transmission are consistent.

The hardware that I use is
Processor : AMD Threadripper 1950x
GPU : AMD Radeon RX 5700 (Reference card from XFX)
GPU eBIOS Version:
GPU Driver Packaging Version:
Motherboard : Asus ROG Strix X399 e-Gaming
MB BIOS Version: American Megatrends Inc. 1203
Operating System : Windows 10 Pro Version 10.0.18363 Build 18363
