it's not necessarily the OpenCl that is going to crash the work either.

For ATI driver installs I tend to be a bit over zealous and anal about their installation. It saves time later trying to figure out what failed

That has been true for a long time. At least since I got the first Radeon AIW. Which was before they started using numbers to identify products. Back then they actually had an uninstall utility that did a good job of removing all of the driver bits.

Looking through clinfo the card's work units are 128 but if I use the settings you suggest for <256 Boinc doesn't register a GPU, but using on the settings in the image works! I will leave it to run and see how it goes from here!

I would like to thank you all for your input.

If the workgroup size is 128 then the applications selected in the image will not work. BOINC may download tasks and try to process them with those applications, but it will just result in errors if it attempts to run them.

Seems not right that his HD5450 should only have a Max work group size of 128, when my HD4850 has a Max work group size of 256.

Your 4850 is considered a high end GPU while the 5450 is considered low end.

Dammit arkayn, I always fall in the same trap "the higher the number, the better"

Just start ignoring the first number and concentrate on the last 2 or 3.

x850 and x80 are high end.
x770 and x60 are middle of the road.
x450 and x30 are low end.

I'll see what happens at the end of the work unit and see if it returns an error if it does I'll try another setting and wait!

StenI bet your HD5450 is a 1GB card as mine is only a 512MB!!


I haven't got a HD5450, I have a HD4850, as I said previously, but it is a 1GB card yes.

If the result come back as corrupt then I will try the other settings again!

Can't you give us a link to the computer in question (maybe unhide it too if it's hidden), so we can see how it performs, and view the stderr of the completed work units.

I had realised I incorrectly typed the number hence why it's been removed :)


I have asked the mods to hide my reply :-)

Hmm it runs OpenCL,r390 with a card which have a Max work group size of 128. According to the release documents that should not work, but this completed WU says it does work:

Task 2344581713

Someone more knowledgeable than me should comment on this.

I thought it strange too, perhaps the latest drivers fix this problem?

I find it a strange one, if it continues to report successes and the other settings fail I will reset it to work in this manner.

I have just noticed that you seem to be running 2 different GPU's in your system! http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/hosts_user.php?userid=35858 Do they work ok together or are you just running one unit and the other was an older card?

I've actually got two mixed Nvidia/ATI hosts, both hosts GPU's coexist with minimal probems,
the only thing to note, is that when installing drivers, for correct OpenCL operation, the AMD drivers need to be installed last,

I guess once setup it was OK but I bet it was a pain initially to get it to work properly?

Yep, getting ATI drivers that would co-exist with Nvidia drivers was a pain for a while,
