Well I don't know about the drivers for games but the ATI OpenCL seems poor to me. Doesn't work on the 2nd core of a HD 5970, it's their top product and it's still not supported yet after a few different versions of the drivers and SDK software.

I was going to give the PrimeGrid PPSieve ATI/OpenCL test version a go but no point if it only works on one core.

I have a Ati 5700 series (Juniper) and it doesn't support ? double precision math's? How come? And what's the solution? My 4800 series went down yesterday so I had to change. Any Ideas? Greetz. Meteor

Very true.

Server software upgrades and other issues. Looks like no DNETC this week end or early next week.

lol lets not get onto the rumours about the new series 6xxx i would seriously not expect anything more then say 7 to 20% gain if they get released.( anything above this will be nice bonus)

I know for a fact that all manufactors do not give the full potential ever, since we want our pricy cards to run longer then the warranty says ;)

I have seen some test with cpu's from DEC which where simply destroyed by going to their limits, so they will allways stay well below that risk.

Nevertheless here we see an overclocked GTX480 doing about 110 seconds over a unit, while a normal clocked AMd 5870 takes about 85 seconds..

So even though its not bad for a nvidia you must consider that any 5870 does that cooler, cheaper, more silent and last but not least needs less power todo this then those nvidia cards

On Collatz we see the same the GTX 480 OC can show in the top list but has a huge list of AMD cards above them.
To be exact a 5870 does one unit in 5 to 6 minutes and a GTX480 OC needs 6,6 to 8 minutes for the same unit.

So i can safely say nvidia made a huge improvement on the processing side on these projects but still is not able to beat a simple 5870 at all
Its new, its relative fast... my new bicycle

How to deal with MilkyWay@home server diagnostics:
"Result de_16_3s_2_835115_1279816531_0 is no longer usable"
"Result de_13_3x_2_1254273_128284363_0 is no longer usable" ?

Since January, 2010, I've processed almost 42 million on Milkyway@home, using two ATI 4870s running on an ASUS M4A79 Deluxe motherboard.
In Late August I converted from Vista64 to 64-bit Win7. I then started noticing the above diagnostics. I'm using the latest ATI and BOINC download software.
The message seems to be telling me that my GPUs are malfunctioning. However, Collatz Conjecture continues to process normally using the GPUs.
Question 2: Do we need a GPU diagnostic/validation utility?

Best Regards,
Rich

I have a very unique card EVGA GTX275 w/ integrated GTS250. This is a card that has two separate physical double precision capable processors on the same card. Normally the GTS250 (GPU1) will not support double precision if on a card by itself. But in this instance because it is intregrated with the GTX275 (GPU0) it is. You may want to add this card to your list for those who have this type of card but have not designated the GTS250 to crunch GPU WUs.

Normally, I only crunch SETI, but I was doing a test by downloading some MW tasks for timing purposes. I noticed that all of the downloaded tasks were GPUs and when they started crunching is when I discovered that both GPUs were crunching on MW; instead of one on MW and the other on SETI.

I am wondering what is wrong since there has been no announcement of any change. I have been using ATI 5870 and 5890 cards with no problems, crunching with GPU only. Suddenly all my cache ran dry and I am not getting any new work, yet the Server status indicate there is plenty of work.

Funny, my NVIDIA card is recognized by BOINC and MW and my client keeps requesting work for it with no error messages. For reference, my GPU is a notebook card (GeForce GT 300M) that does not support DP and only has 256MB anyway.

It works for PrimeGrid and supposedly for Collatz, although Collatz gives computation errors. Einstein won't run because of insufficient memory...

I'm looking into a Quadro 600 (brand new as of, like, yesterday) for my home desktop...Not only do I want to crunch and help more, but I'm sick of games made past 2004 crashing CONSTANTLY.

That said...wonder if I can somehow make my ATi RADEON X800 SE crunch...something.

Riddle me this?
I have a ASUS G73JH with a ATI HD5870 card that BOINC reads as a 5700 series card.
ATI GPU 0: ATI Radeon HD5700 series (Juniper) (CAL version 1.4.515, 1024MB, 1120 GFLOPS peak)

MW gives me the
Milkyway@home Message from server: No work sent
Milkyway@home Message from server: An ATI GPU supporting double precision math is required
Milkyway@home Message from server: Your computer has no NVIDIA GPU

Running Catalyst Ver. 2009.1217.1632.29627 and after I tried to update Catalyst to the most current version I locked so I am stuck with the version I have.
Downloaded the 64 bit .23 mW apps for 64 bit W7 and copied them after stopping (completely) BOINC. When run I produced WU in 2-4 seconds that were all errors. This happened to around 10 WU then I stopped it and retried the installation with the same results on another 10 WU's. deleted all and am just using the CPU at the moment.
Any ideas?

Message 42927 - Posted: 18 Oct 2010, 8:34:18 UTC

I get a message now that i cannot get more work units from Milkyway as my system is not supported. i run a MAC, power PC G4 1.6 Ghz and 1 MB memory. The graphics card is a Nvida GEOFORCE2 MX

This started a few days ago. Does this mean i am out of luck with future work units?

I want to know so i can remove Milkwway and dedicate it's space to some other application.

Right now i run SETI, Einstien and World Community work units. At one time i did Rosetta but it's requirement went beyond my systems capabilities
