My personal internet access is down for a few days so I didn't tried, so I ask the question(s) directly : is the CUDA project operationnal or not ? Has anyone tried with a small graphic card like 8600M GS, 8600 GT, etc. ?

I don't know if it's useful to say that, but a friend tested the optimization with a Radeon HD 4890, and it works very well. 5-8 seconds by workunit.

That's good news. I can propose my computers for beta-test if you need it :

- Quad Core Q6600 / Vista 32 bits (CPU only)

and

- Core2Duo E7200 / Vista 64 bits or Xp 32 bits / ATI HD 4850 512 Mo

If you need to test something I'm here ^^

Yes there is enough units to download, but I can't get a lot and I must do a manual check to get some tasks.

Thank you very much ^^

I have a problem when running another project at the same time :

If I run another project, I always have the "not requesting tasks" message.

If I suspend the other projet, I must manually request tasks, and sometimes I get some ...

It worked great on Vista64, but on Xp32 I get always the same message : not requesting tasks ... the only solution I found was to suspend or delete the other projet (World Comm Grid).

I think this is a priority problem (100 for each, theorically 50% each).

Edit : I tried 100/900 (WCG/MW), but now it's running only WCG because of priority time... I try to suspend WCG.

Edit 2 : With only MW project, I get some workunits and then :

24/02/2009 08:53:11 Milkyway@home Sending scheduler request: Requested by user.
24/02/2009 08:53:11 Milkyway@home Reporting 3 completed tasks, requesting new tasks

Same message, again : not reporting or requesting tasks... I can't crunch today :(

Note for Vista-64 users : I had to install a hotfix from ATI to get the CCC working. The driver is 8.2

PS : when GPU activity is 0%, I have an idle temp of 80°c and fan speed at 25%. If I use the CCC to set the fan speed at 50%, the temp decrease to 60°c :) But I have a question : if I sent the fan speed manually, may I have a problem when running the GPU at 100% ?

If anyone can help with this "not reporting or requesting tasks" thing ... thank you ^^

Upgraded to GPU app version 0.19.

Works fine on Vista 64, 4 Go RAM, HD 4850 512 Mo, Core2Duo.

It's running 4 MW units (0.50 CPU each), and 1 World Community Grid unit.

The two core are not working at 100%. In version 0.17 I was running two WCG units, and two MW units, and the 2 cores was at 100%...

Little problem here : when I attached a new WCG project, the 4 MW stopped (the calculation seems to work, but the progress bar is freezed for the 4 units).

A BOINC shutdown almost solved the problem : I have now 1 WCG unit and 2 MW units. Haaaa it changed again : 2 WCG units, and only 1 MW unit !!!

:)

Tried to remotely reboot and modified the boot.ini ... and it's crashed :( So I can't test anymore at this time :(

I'm trying GPU app on a XP-32 bits.

After I installed the latest BOINC 6.6.9 and Catalyst 9.1, the first 10 or 15 MW units went on error. Since then I got this message :

20/02/2009 14:50:16 Milkyway@home Sending scheduler request: Requested by user.
20/02/2009 14:50:16 Milkyway@home Not reporting or requesting tasks
20/02/2009 14:50:22 Milkyway@home Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks

Same problem I got a few hours ago on Vista-64 (but it was solved on Vista).


-------------------
I detached from MW project, then re-attached with copying the files, I got this message :

20/02/2009 14:56:59 Milkyway@home [error] No app version for result: windows_intelx86 19

When I try to update the project :

It works now, sorry for the previous message ^^

Everything is ok, with the WU limit removal, I try now to keep only the MW project. I have 8 workunits running on my Core2Duo, less than 10 seconds by WU...

I think I have a little problem :

20/02/2009 09:21:02 Milkyway@home Sending scheduler request: Requested by user.

20/02/2009 09:21:07 Milkyway@home Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks

For the past hour I tried a few times, no workunit for me :(

I will try the 32 bits version, with an overclocking of my HD4850 (and CPU, too ^^)

Another question (sorry if it's stupid ^^) : why the optimized application, specially the GPU app, are not available on the MW website with a big-red-flashing font ? :) I found this thread only by (extreme) luck, and I think that a lot of people don't know they can optimize their participation. But maybe it will be a charge to heavy for the server ?

I just saw the new 32 bit version for ATI GPU. It's a good news, but is there any performance difference between 32 and 64 bits ? If the calculation times are the same, I will come back to my Xp 32 bits ^^

I've used some welcome coding from Exar Kun to improve the layout of zslip which hopefully will make it easier to use. I still need to tidy it up a bit, but the latest Windows and Linus apps are there. Just some historical Linux to add.

Thanks for your help Exar Kun, much appreciated ;)



You're welcome ^^

I'm always pleased to take advantages of improvements, so if you're serious in that I can use the code for your table, I might just do that. Thanks ;)


I'm serious. It took me 5 or 10 minutes to do that, so it's not a big work ^^

Take everything you want. If you want me to do something else, do not hesitate ^^

(exarkun_AT_free.fr if you want to talk more about it)


I like that :)


Thank you ^^

You can take a look (it's an alpha version ^^) :

Just to get an idea. You can take the code of course ^^

It's my personal opinion, but I think that a full list of compatible GPUs might be great, because I can read here and there some questions about the compatibility of cards. Maybe the label "HD38x0 or HD48x0" isn't clear for all people. Maybe something like this :

Compatible Cards :

- ATI Radeon HD 3840
- ATI Radeon HD 4850
- ATI Radeon HD 4870

Cluster > do not be offensed by my next question : do you want a simple html/css code to present your different pages ? With some nice tables, colors, etc. ?
