Hi there, I have

Hi there,
I have a PC with a Pentium 4 CPU 1500Mhz, 1.5 Ghz. 2.0GB of ram,
Windows XP SP3, ATI Radeon 9200 Series Graphics card. Can I upgrade Boinc and now be able to use my GPU ?

Thanks,

Ivor

Einstein will not crunch two

Einstein will not crunch two BRPs units at once. Albert has no problem with doing so...
Is Albert twice as smart as Einstein.
Einstein will only do one unit at a time on my hd5770 . I ve checked and double checked my preferences
Einstein preferences are the same as Albert as far as I can tell.In both cases I ve set the use .5
option. Einstein is using .5 CPUs + 1 ATI GPU per unit whereas Albert is using .879 CPUs + .5 ATI GPUs.
Is anyone else having this problem

Is there a difference between these work units such that the top one needs to hog all the GPU
but only uses .5 CPU

Einstein...
Binary Radio Pulsar Search (Arecibo) v1.24(atiOpenCL)

Albert...
Binary Radio Pulsar Search v1.24 (atiOpenCL)

So what does Albert have that Einstein don t (sorry about the lack of proper punctuation - keyboard problems)

no, its too old. if you look at the GPU requirements at the top of this thread, you'll see you need an OpenCL 1.1 compliant ATI/AMD GPU, which corresponds to a Radeon HD 5000 series GPU/APU or later.

This is just a graphics card with a graphics processing unit. It has no GPGPU = General-purpose computing on graphics processing units capability.

The AMD GPGPUs capable of doing CAL/Brook+ calculations are shown in this list.
The AMD GPGPUs capable of OpenCL calculations are shown in this list. All GPGPUs with beta level 2 support are not supported by Einstein's OpenCL application.

I have the 7.0.28(x64)

I have the 7.0.28(x64) version running on a Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit machine and it seems to be working ok, except that I sometimes get messages like below:

5/20/2012 9:48:28 PM | Einstein@Home | Task h1_0435.95_S6GC1__1142_S6LV1B_0 exited with zero status but no 'finished' file
5/20/2012 9:48:28 PM | Einstein@Home | If this happens repeatedly you may need to reset the project.

I have tried resetting the project but it still happens. I've had like 6 instances of this in 4 days so it's not a complete show stopper, but if anyone has knowledge or ideas about what might be causing this I would appreciate the info.

Thanks
