Message 11879 - Posted: 20 Feb 2009, 20:51:25 UTC - in response to Message 11814.  

I'm also looking into getting the server to automatically determine what optimizations are available to a client (via BOINCs application planning). If we can get that up and running then we'd be able to have our applications compiled with different levels of optimization and send them out accordingly.


That'll be great for the project if you can get it working and also provide a full set of working apps with different levels of optimisation. I'm sure there will be a lot of complaints though when the credits are standardised to what the new apps can do, and optimised apps start losing credits again :)

Can't say I'm overly concerned either way. This project will for the time being get some of my processor time, I'm just adjusting according to my personal preferences (which do include credit levels but only to determine how much of my processor time each project I work on gets). Hey, so I don't know from one day to the next what I want to do, at least I do it :)

I'm now using the Win32_SSE2 ATI version 0.19 myself. It is crunching 4 tasks at a time remarkably quickly. The BOINC manager Tasks screen is fast forwarding so quickly you might as well make it the screensaver.

I've updated zslip.com / zslip.net with links to a suggested free download site for the ATI Catalyst drivers, which is;

http://www.ngohq.com/home.php?page=files&go=cat&dwn_cat_id=18

If you know of a better site please let me know. Thanks.

I tried that initially. But all it wanted to offer me was the 9.2 driver. I must admit I got confused and frustrated with it since there is no obvious place to find the 8.12 driver. Perhaps you can say where it is on that site?

There will be a different page for all OS flavors and card series.
For example: http://ati.amd.com/support/drivers/vista32/commonprevious-vista32.html
Might as well use the site previously mentioned.

Thanks for finding that Misfit. When you've just laid out mega bucks for a card and want to get it installed and running quickly, one page with all the drivers for all OS would be helpful - so I'll leave the site I found as you suggest, thanks. I'm sure pleople can use the official ATI or other sites if they want.

But as ever, if there are any suggestions for improvement, please let me know.

after choosing your OS and card you get to the page where you get the latest driver - a few line down there is a link called "Previous Drivers and Software"

Ah, I see it now, thanks speedimic. To find the Catalyst 8.12 and 9.1 drivers;

Go to the official Ati/AMD site http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html, and click on your OS, eg, 'Profesional/Home' under 'Windows XP'. Then select 'Radeon', then select 'Radeon HD 4800 Series', then click on Go. Click on 'Previous Drivers and Software' at the bottom. Select 'Catalyst 9.1' or 'Catalyst 8.12' and then click on 'Display Driver'.

Or go to http://www.ngohq.com/home.php?page=files&go=cat&dwn_cat_id=18

Yes it's longer, but then some may like to get the drivers from the ATI site itself. I documented the 'long walk' below so that I could link to the post in zslip ;)

One of the problems with a site like ATI's is the mass of information and links you have to wade through. If you're unlucky you don't see the links you need, or if lucky or used to such sites you may see them quickly. Hopefully it is now easier for some to find the drivers.

hehe, I was describing the ATI site as the ong way round, not your site. the link you gave has it all no one page which looks a lot easier (I'll know when I get modern ATI card :) )

Yes I see, but now that I've found it on the 'long' ATI site I'm inclined to uninstall mine and use the one from the ATI site. I do recall on the site I used that there was more than one driver for 8.12 XP... did I pick the right one? The one on the ATI site must be right.

No.
Also for the future there won't be any significant performance changes. It is simply at the maximum already ;)

I will slowly add more features and hopefully the reliability will go up in the future.

I would say that it looks like the drivers are not installed as required. I first tried the drivers that came with my card, 8.5, and also 9.1 and 9.2 (with files renamed to make it work) but none of them worked - only 8.12 was good for my HD4850.

Perhaps you need to make sure you uninstall all your existing ATI drivers before installing 8.12 - my suggestion.
