Message 29619 - Posted: 22 Aug 2009, 16:54:37 UTC - in response to Message 29506.  

With the server upgrade now in place work has begun on setting up the server to be able to distribute the CUDA client to users that have access to a CUDA 1.3 card (one that supports double precision). Right now a Linux/GNU 64 Bit CUDA application is live, however, there are some issues with the NVIDIA drivers and BOINC so the application seg faults. This issue should be non-existant on Windows, therefore, over the next few days a Windows 32 bit CUDA client will be added to the server.

Nice!
Will there also be a 64bit Windows CUDA application?

i'll be happy to do a test run for yall considering the new drivers suck for a lot of users and can't use them..

190.62 is working fine for me on gpugrid, seti, and Einstein.

I'm having difficulties building 64bit Windows applications with Visual C++ Express Edition so there will only be a 32 bit application in the beginning.

The CUDA compiler from NVIDIA is giving me some trouble with using the 64 bit binaries of the Visual C++ compiler (cl.exe). It complains of the wrong version, I'm researching the problem now.

Visual C++ Express Edition doesn't include the 64 bit SDK. You need to download and install that to be able to compile and link a 64 bit app.

Anyway, there's no use for an 64 bit CUDA app since you won't gain any speed by using 64 bits and any 64 bit windows can run 32 bit app.

Problem solved, case closed :p

Message 29698 - Posted: 24 Aug 2009, 23:37:56 UTC - in response to Message 29696.  

The Windows 32 bit application is complete and I have successfully downloaded it through BOINC and crunched about 5 WUs. I have deprecated it though because it is getting different results than older versions of the code, as a result of a few changes in the code repository. Right now I am waiting on a response from the team to see if it is okay if the code changes propagate to the users. As for an ETA, it will be any day now, pending on the conclusion of the code change.

Work has been put off on the Windows 64 bit version and I am now concentrating on the 64/32 bit Linux version.

There appears to be a memory fault with the longer wu's with the app using over 300MB of video RAM, instead of ~30MB. If you only run 1 wu at a time it seams to help.

This issue should be resolved in the latest version (0.24) available on BOINC.
