Hi there, I'm trying to run the Compute Benchmark using Geekbench 4.2.2, but the "Run" button is greyed out and it says "No compatible compute devices found." Any workarounds? See screenshot and system details below. Thanks!

OS: Windows 10 Home version 1803
OS Build: 17134.1
Graphics: AMD Radeon Vega 8 Graphics

    Hi isedhello,

    Thanks for posting about this. Have you tried running the Compute benchmark using the command line tool? What happens when you do so?

    If you haven't done this before, here is an article explaining how to do it (scroll down to 'Install the Tool on Windows'):

    Also, what do you get if you run the following command?:

    Hi, thanks for the response.

    When I run the --compute command, I get the following:

    [0504/134034:ERROR:consolemain.cpp(921)] Geekbench encountered an internal error and cannot continue. Please contact [email blocked] for assistance.
    Internal error message: clGetPlatformIDs.

    With --compute-list, there is no output beyond the program name, and the prompt returns after a short delay. When I view the --help list, there is a --cpu command listed (with runs OK), but not --compute or --compute-list.

    In the meantime, let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.
