21) Questions and Answers : GPU applications : Boinc version change 7.4.22 to 7.4.26 - no GPU ? (Message 1597935)
Posted 17 days ago by Profile BilBg
And why exactly do you need/want "newest Graphic drivers" on old GPUs?

NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT (512MB) driver: 340.52
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=6819491

NVIDIA GeForce G 105M (512MB) driver: 340.52
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=5168264

For old GPUs the best driver is 266.58

I really don't know if stock applications users have "DOCS subdirectory" of if they receive any ReadMe files.

But I know where you can get them:

If you go here:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=76035&postid=1596403#1596403

... follow the link to 'Lunatics main download area' and get the installer file
(Lunatics_Win32_v0.43a_setup.exe or Lunatics_Win64_v0.43a_setup.exe)

... then you may use 7-Zip
http://www.7-zip.org/

... to extract any file from the Lunatics installer (it have inside numerous .exe .dll .txt and other files)

I have the same error with an AMD 7970.
...
Running driver version 13.1

As TBar say - Catalyst 13.1 is bad:
"Cat 13.1 has APP runtime 1084.4 compiler Bug. Do not use for SETI@home v7"
http://www.hal6000.com/seti/boinc_ati_gpu_cheat_sheet.htm

(the above page have links "To download ATI PCIe drivers")

P.S.
No need to do steps after:
"But these drivers can be used still if the kernels binaries are precompiled under an older Catalyst driver"
Just update Catalyst (I'm not sure which version is best for your GPU and OS, ask TBar :) )

Again not clear

Do you use app_config.xml for any project and what are its/their contents?

The only thing I can find is the trdelay in my registry

As already noted - NONE of these values exist in the Registry, even TdrDelay do not exist until you create it. (manually or running a .reg file)

And it's TdrDelay - not trdelay nor tdrdelay
(I'm not sure cASe mattERs but it's best to Copy/Paste it from Microsoft article: TdrDelay TdrLevel)


... so what do you suggest?

Reboot after any change to these values? (so they take effect)

Read files in <BOINC_Data>\projects\setiathome.berkeley.edu\docs\ for available switches "to reduce GUI lags or to prevent driver restarts"
e.g. "If you experience screen lags reduce unroll factor and ffa_block_fetch value."

Ask in Number Crunching for what and how to do (e.g. which switches to use and where to put them)

When asking specify which computer you talk about ("DELL" means nothing - give link or ID#)
Give link to this thread;
Stress that you aim for low lag and no driver restarts (else most people tend to think you want highest performance)


e.g. for low lag I use:
-cpu_lock -unroll 2

in:
ap_cmdline_win_x86_SSE2_OpenCL_ATI.txt

From what I was reading the options given were to set tdrdelay to 8 for more time or 0 to turn it off and quit the detection.

Where did you read such thing?
Copy/Paste the "reading" and/or give the link.
(in Microsoft article you'll not see this)

So you try TdrDelay=0 ?? - for me the result of this will be 'unknown'

Either:
- driver will fail very often
- Windows will ignore the value as 'stupid'

... or maybe it's a result of me disabling the txt file with the switches in it.

How do you "disable the txt file"?

Do you delete the file (WRONG) or do you delete the contents (OK) so the file is empty?

"ValueData : TdrLevelOff (0) - Detection disabled"

TdrLevel can be set to 0 to Disable 'Timeout Detection and Recovery (TDR)' altogether

***

TdrLevel have to not exist in Registry or be set to 3 (default) to enable usage of TdrDelay

***

So use either (not both):

TdrLevel=0
or
TdrDelay=8

***

If you set TdrLevel=0 "and still get the display driver has failed" something is wrong (e.g. TdrLevel was not set in the proper place in the Registry or is not REG_DWORD)

Did you reboot? (I think these values are not used until reboot)

This time it have to be something very near to servers or the servers themselves.

I tried to redirect my traffic from Bulgaria through VPN to Los Angeles 23.19.26.250 (so the servers think I'm in Los Angeles) but this didn't help

Do you use fast-user-switching?

Yes sir, bios 2507 and the latest updates are downloaded and installed.

Already was bios 2507 or you now updated to 2507 ?


Is this still the latest about installing the luncatics package ?
http://www.overclockers.com/forums/showthread.php/625171-Instructions-for-Installing-and-Optimizing-BOINC-for-Windows

:)) No, this is from 2009 on some 'third-or-fifth-party' site ;)

This is from today:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=76035&postid=1596403#1596403


What about my second project, Rosetta@Home if I install the lunatics package ?

All changes are only in SETI@home directory (<BOINC_Data>\projects\setiathome.berkeley.edu\)

So TJMax looks to be 97°C

***

Do you know which version of BIOS you have? (is it 2507)
(shown e.g. by CPU-Z and SIV -> Machine, or (while you reboot) by the BIOS itself)

Another user pointed me that there are several updates for your MB BIOS aimed to:
"Improve System performance, Improve system stability, Enhance compatibility"

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Z97P/HelpDesk_Download/

(choose Windows 7, then BIOS)

The last is:

With the Boinc application it won't go up that high, max temp around 40°C

Do you mean "With the SETI@home application"? (just BOINC with no running projects' applications is idle computer)


I know these programs, will use them when needed

So you will not know till then what is TJMax (or you know it from somewhere else?)
TJMax is the max core temperature before CPU "start to thermal throttle"


Yes, I use Plex.tv mediaserver, when used with my Xbox One it has to transcode X264 streams

Define "transcode"
If this is only decode - this is light (any player do it)
If this is encode by x264 - this library/codec really heats
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X264

(if "Plex.tv mediaserver" uses other library/codec to encode in "H.264/MPEG-4 AVC format" - I can't know how optimized it is)

-period_iterations_num N

: Splits single PulseFind kernel call to N calls for longest PulseFind calls.
Can be used to reduce GUI lags or to prevent driver restarts.
Can affect performance. Experimentation required.
Default value for v6/v7 task is N=20
N should be positive integer.
If you experience screen lags or driver restarts increase -period_iterations_num


On my AMD Radeon HD 6570 - I feel too much Desktop lag even with:
-period_iterations_num 200

... so I don't run MultiBeam on it

If you try -period_iterations_num 10 this will be even more lag than the default

(Sten-Arne: "using 10 and no lag" is for high-end GPU with "compute units: 20"
