Posted 15 Jan 2012 by John Beck
I have a ATI HD 6870 and Milky says that I don't have the necessary computing power? 2TB/s isn't fast enough? I bought my system specifically to work with BOINC projects, and yours is a main one. What do I need to do to get this puppy crunching with your project? Using Catalyst 11.12 made sure I had Open CL SDK 2.6.

Specs are:
MS Windows 7 64-bit SP1
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T
Thuban 45nm Technology
8.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 535MHz (7-7-7-19)
Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. GA-890GPA-UD3H (Socket M2)
Generic Non-PnP Monitor (1600x1200@60Hz)
AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series (Sapphire/PCPartner)

Other projects are utilizing my 6870 just fine just so ya know. Thanks for the option to be able to help in this project! :) Also let me know if I just need to wait for a new Milkyway update too.

Hi I like option 2 maybe the big picture with shaded areas showing looks of current work done and in progress on an overlay of the generalized structure with the location of the solar system and the option to turn it off and on when checking it. Maybe to have a one level zoom with the processed data (not the high resolution but like a thumbnail version)the brightest. That should be simple enough but get the data expressed quickly. Use like a snapshot process maybe once a day. Hope this helps. I think most of us just want a basic view of the progress. Have the more intensive stuff on the website page as an option later.

Hope I helped!

Is there going to be a show graphics program added to see on the fly progress of the project?
