Start Up Errors
on Jul 16, 2012 at 5:17:43 am

Hey, guys. New to the forum and Resolve. I'm getting an error message when I open up Resolve. It says:

"WARNING: No OpenCL Acceleration Hardware Detected! Please quit and install a OpenCL accelerated GPU card or update your OpenCL software driver to the latest version."

I'm using an iMac. The specs are:

Any advice on the next step? This might be a simple problem but I'm new to this whole thing and not sure what to do. Any help would be much appreciated!

Here is the problem:
Chipset Model: ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro

This card doesn't support OpenCL, Resolve prefers CUDA for best performance and will fall back to OpenCL if CUDA is not available. But sadly your system supports neither CUDA nor OpenCL.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Thanks, Juan. Is there any solution for my current setup or am I just out of luck?
