In summer i stopped compute any of compute apps with gpu. By now after 2 years it started to die.
It not do invalid results yet. I cant oc the memory in overdrive for first gpu, other gpu mem is ok.
I readed many forums that these cards started broke up after 2 years of use.

Is your x2 card life is ended for compute or it still alive.

I used mem tester for videocard and all running fine.

Could be a RAM issue. Try reducing the number of wu's running to one per GPU at a time.

Hi,
find in your app_info.xml the path

<platform>windows_x86_64</platform>
<plan_class>ati13ati</plan_class>
<avg_ncpus>0.050000</avg_ncpus>
<max_ncpus>1.00000</max_ncpus>
<coproc>
<type>ATI</type>
<count>1.000000</count>
</coproc>
</app_version>

and change <count> to 0.5

This should make it possible to run two apps on one gpu.

Regards
Alexander
