Good day,

I've been having issues lately with specifically "MilkyWay@home 1.43 (opencl_ati_101)" units which have a failure rate of 100% 2secs after starting up.

The "MilkyWay@home 1.43 (opencl_nvidia_101)" actually works great on a separate machine so I leads me to believe that this problem is specific to the AMD Radeon GPU (6800 series - HD6870 in my case). The adapter has never been overclocked and is actually working on a machine crunching for 16 distinct BOINC projects without any issues on any other project.

I'm running the latest AMD Catalyst Software Suite available on Windows 10 (non-beta drivers).

Driver Packaging ver. 15.201.1151.1008-151104a-296217E
Provider Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
2D Driver Version
Direct3D Version
OpenGL Version
Mantle Driver Version
Mantle API Version Not Available
AMD Catalyst CCV 2015.1104.1643.30033

Breakdown is as follows for the end result of completed units...

- MilkyWay@home 1.43 (opencl_ati_101) => Computational error after 2 secs.

- MilkyWay@home 1.43 (opencl_nvidia_101) => 100% successful completion.

- MilkyWay@Home N-Body Simulation 1.62(mt) => 100% successful completion.

- MilkyWay@Home 1.42 => 100% successful completion.
