I have a ATI 6850 GPU and I get the message:

"An ATI GPU supporting double precision math is required"

This GPU does have double precision floating point.

Maybe de software doesnt recognize because it's a relatively new gpu?

Sorry, it does not support double precision.
Take a look at page 7 here

Thanks for the info.

AMD slightly changed the numbering scheme. The upgrade from the 58xx series is the 69xx.
