When will Kepler be supported?
Posted 152 days ago by TheInternal
Running Windows 8 Pro 64-bit, Core i5 at 4.4GHz, and two Geforce 670 GTX cards. I'd like to lend my spare cycles to BOINC (SETI@home and world community grid in particular), but kepler still isn't supported.
It's really frustrating, having been BOINCing for years, to not be able to easily boinc now that I have access to a faster system.
I am greatly concerned that by having a whole series of popular graphics cards not work with SETI@home, that you'll risk turning off a lot of potential volunteers / alienate a number of existing ones. I sincerely hope a fix is in the works to allow individuals to easily contribute once again.
Some questions regarding the FAQ:
a) Use an optimised Cuda application, where available.
b) Downgrade to the 301.42 driver - only possible on GTX 670/680/690 cards, not on newer releases like the 650/660 or their Ti variants.
c) Set an environment variable, as shown below."
a) what the hell is an optimised Cuda application?
b) Um, no. I use my computer for games regularly, so this is not an option. Is this part an absolute must?
c) Confusing... step b said use 301.42 driver... step c wants us to use 306 driver?
I figured out how to do this in Windows 8, but the FAQ is rather lacking in a few of the steps for the more novice computer users who would like to contribute.
creating the environment variable doesn't seem to fix the problem. No matter what I try, SETI keeps erroring out.
