Hi All,

i joined today,

My BOINC notices says:
Milky way@ Home: Notice from server
An ATI GPU supporting double precision math is required

What does that means?

My GPU: AMD Radeon HD 6500M/5600/5700 series
CPU: Intel Core i7 CPU Q 720 @ 1.60GHz

Is this project is suitable for my laptop?

Thanks in Advance
Dev

Sorry, but the card in your laptop will not be able to crunch Milky Way separation (GPU) work units. It lacks the floating point precision necessary to get the accurate results the project needs. But all is not lost, your i7 should be able to crunch n-body units (Milky Way CPU work units) without difficulty. My laptop GPU, an HD6370M crunches Collatz slowly but without difficulty. Your GPU should as well.
