In this article, we will show you how to enable AMD compute mode on Windows. If you are using Linux OS, you don't have to turn on compute mode as Linux drivers don't have this option. Please also note that not all GPUs and all Windows drivers versions do have this option.
You can find Radeon software in different places:
If you don't find such icon or software, then your GPUs and/or drivers don't support it. You can try to install different drivers, but if you aren't experiencing any issues, there is no need to do that.
Follow the steps:
AMD compute mode is a special settings in some of the AMD drivers that makes drivers perform better for different computing tasks (as opposed to different graphics task). Mining of cryptocurrencies (especially Ethash coin) is one of such computing tasks. Drivers optimize the performance for computing and use different advanced algorithms to assure the computing tasks get executed faster and better. Some miners reported high improvement of their mining performance - so if you aren't getting expected hashrates on your AMD GPUs, you might only need to enable compute mode. In Linux, on the other hand, drivers automatically enable compute mode.
