The OpenCL application for Nvidia GPUs is ready for testing for Windows and Linux x86_64. I'm particularly interested in the performance / responsiveness tradeoff on mid-low range GPUs.

Many thanks to cncguru for donating his GTX 480. If I hadn't had it, it would be about 30% slower than it is.

http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/download/test/milkyway_separation_0.48_x86_64-pc-linux-gnu__cuda_opencl.tar.gz
http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/download/test/milkyway_separation_0.48_windows_intelx86__cuda_opencl.zip

Extract these to the project directory. On Windows this is something like C:\ProgramData\BOINC\projects\milkyway.cs.rpi.edu_milkyway
On Ubuntu for me, this is /var/lib/boinc-client/projects/milkyway.cs.rpi.edu_milkyway

@ Matt - do you have a link for the download or will it download automatically as a stock app?

You have to manually download from the links I posted. I'm not putting it up as stock yet. I think the server still needs to be updated for that to happen, and I want to hear if the system responsiveness is a problem on some lower end GPUs.

I just installed it on my GTX460 host and will see what it does on there.

Just tried to run that version on my GTX260.
But I only get WUs that error out immediately like this one.
Do I need something else for it to run?

If I remember correctly, you will need at least a 26x.00 driver to use the openCL app.

Upgrade to the newest and see if it runs correctly.

The minimum driver which is supposed to work is 197.13, but I've only actually tested with the latest drivers.

Thansk, guys :-)

The only thing - I tested that on GPUGRID and there cuda 2.3 is way faster then codu 3.0 and just faster then 3.1... But NP, I'll try latest drivers...

Is anyone running it in a system with both ATI and Nvidia drivers installed? I just realized a hypothetical problem that might happen.

ok, I understand - I have to move to CUDA 3.0 at least.

The latest driver (260.19.21) is on CUDA 3.2, so I think it's necessary to get cudatoolkit 3.2 from here

Why in the stats on the project account, the stats of these test units do not stay posted?

Upgrading the driver did the trick, you were right on this. I had a version beneath 260.x. Thanx for that hint!
The WUs are running fine now. :-)

I don't know. I consistently have a problem with this.
