I'm getting an error on every work unit I try on my 2012 iMac with an ATI Radeon HD 6970M (see paste here https://pastebin.com/0A6atKK1)

I have tried several different times to run MW@H work units on this box, always resulting in failures. No other project that I've attempted have any issues that I've seen.

Is this a known issue, relating to the thread, or is this separate?


Your GPU isn't supported 'Device doesn't support double precision.

You can still use the CPU applications. You need to disable your GPU for Milkyway.

Thanks for this update Sidd

Now my Macs can process NBody again! I still get some errors, but it doesn't run past 100%

Hi,

The problem is resolved for me with the new NBody v1.54. Not all Nobody validate (lots do), but they don't run past 100% and they finish.
