Hi,

Someone has brought it to my attention that I am getting a high number of invalid/validation inconclusive tasks and I believe it has to do with my recent upgrade to the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT. BOINC estimates 8 minutes for the GPU tasks, but they've been completing in about 17 seconds. Would anybody know the reason why?

PC stats:
Windows 10 pro 64-bit
Intel i9 7900X
AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT
32gb ddr4 ram
2tb m.2 drive

I will quote a post form Keith Myers over in the Number Crunching forum


The new Navi 5700 and 5700XT are useless for compute currently. The drivers are not ready for compute. All projects that rely on AMD OpenCL drivers are producing nothing but garbage results and invalids. The AMD developers and the Khronos group are aware of the problem but not a peep from either of them about what the real problem is or when to expect a fix.


The thread is here

Thank you for the information! I'll be suspending GPU activities until the problem is fixed by AMD.
