I have an AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512 MB. Does that satisfy the requirement? If so, how do I take advantage of the new release?
Thanks,

My company has upgraded some research hardware and has given me a Tesla C1060 unit. I was wondering if I can use it to process SETI@home and Eistein@home data. I currently use a AMD 965 BE Quad core, 8 gig 12800 memory with a NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 470 video card configuration. If I can use them together then it should be a real screamer. Any thoughts?

Eric is going to work on an OpenCL app for OSX, but it has to go through beta first.

The installer is waiting for Multibeam version 7.

You need to be running Boinc 7.0.25 or later to get the Astropulse opencl_ati_100 6.04 app,

The proper name is OpenGL. This may be confusing for some (as it was for me, I didn't recognize it at first).

No, OpenGL is a graphics library or API designed to be cross-platform to aid in graphics-related apps (CAD, virtual reality, games, screen savers).

OpenCL, the correct term, is an API that is designed to assist or allow running standard applications on the GPU via a common programming language regardless of the hardware underneath (i.e. an OpenCL application can be executed on any GPU that supports the OpenCL standard as long as an OpenCL compatible driver is loaded).

"Just click HERE and all kinds of necessary stuff will be done AUTOMATICALLY"


Then perhaps you could just act on topic of this thread. This thread about stock app release that will be downloaded on your host automatically as long as it meets requirements. No action required from you at all, this thread just for INFO, not for "non-geeks" to do anything new.


Guess it'll download as soon as a new AstroPulse is required on my system? I still have 1 in queue now and it'll be done in ~36h from now (if running constantly). No new AstroPulse jobs (with the GPU set) here though

I think I see why some of the confusion here. The notice that came up on the BOINC Manager is missing the following line that was in the original post in this thread:
"If your computer supports a version, it should get it automatically."

Hence, people just reading BOINC Manager were wondering where were the links to download the new applications.

Note that the URL reports two 460s because BOINC considers the most-capable GPU.

If you attach it to SETI@home and it's running on Windows is should get SETI@home work for the GPU immediately and AstroPulse GPU work as soon as I release those versions.

Confused as well, 1090t, 8 gig of 1333 ram, 6950 unlocked to 6970, Win7 64 bit, just upgraded to the newest boinc 028 I believe, but, since its not using the GPU, I must not automagically be able to run the GPU end of this.

Any reasons why not qualify to compute GPU, or do I have to install and go through the headache on my own?

Any help, wanna find space aliens talking to us. HELP!!!!!

Sorry I solved my own confusion.

But, as stated, sometimes you need to go back and start from the beginning, I didn't know I had to install the Opencl program first, I assumed it would be in the newest BOINC upgrade.

In any case, I have 5 cores running CPU and one thread using .05 processor, and the rest GPU, and MAN is it FLYING speedwise.

I think I got it solved, but, feel free to ad any helpfuls if you wish.

Keep your eye on results from that computer for a week or two, to be sure none are deemed invalid or something like that.

Hi!

My acer aspire 7741zg, intel pentium p6200 (2.13 GHz 3MB L3 cache) 2-prosessors ofcourse with AMD Radeon HD6550M with up to 2746MB hyper memory (4 GB DDR memory), the ver 7 and above (or what ever ver 7 tried many times, this LT is 100% OK) on yours dl page does not even start at all on this LapTop. So I am tied to version 6.smth. I have tried everything and you can bet your moneys that here is some information on these situations since 1991. My first op.sys. was Dos 5.0 or 5.5 cannot remember anymore, those days took most of time to find enough EMM or HI-MEM to be able to play certain games, no these days youngsters know anything about it.

So question:
Is there anyone who can take those improvements to working 6 ver or could someone who is coding now those 7 versions take a second look onto their codes.

This is annoying situation the Boinc-manager shouts everyday to update to the never version, or did it you say: "should update!"

Yours:

Hi!

Sorry man, but did you mean Opengl, not Opencl?

You should really try the Questions and Answers forum for all trouble-shooting related questions. I am willing to bet my money against yours that you have not tried everything, and that there is no way this is due to a code bug in BOINC v7, but likely an issue specific to your computer's configuration.

As was stated before one should not mix OpenCL and OpenGL.
OpenGL is GPU API interface for games/advanced graphics mostly (though there were attempts to use it for GPGPU before too) while OpenCL, OpenComputeLanguage, was developed specifically for GP (general purpose) GPU usage, that is, scientific computations of massively parallel data sets.
And very OpenCL was used for AstroPulse build in question.

Wow, you're even too wordy here.

NOTE TO ALL: openCL (C as in sea).

Thank you.

Good day. ;)
