I'll have to check the BRP7

I'll have to check the BRP7 thread but I think minimum OpenCL is 2.0 for that app.  So the R5 240 with its drivers won't get sent any BRP7 work.

I haven't pinned down the minimum requirements for Intel/AMD cards for the BRP7 app.  Do know that OpenCL 3.0 is minimum for Nvidia cards.

if you're talking about

if you're talking about Petri's BRP7 app, that's CUDA.
if, you're talking about the project OpenCL BRP7 app, I do not believe that requires Opencl 2.0. probably 1.2 like their other apps. It does have a minimum CC required for nvidia (I think 3.5), but that's nothing to do with OpenCL or AMD cards.

OpenCL 2.0 is only required for the new v1.28 FGRPB1G app (both Nvidia and AMD) as well as Petri's custom Nvidia app. OpenCL 3.0 is not a minimum requirement for the Nvidia app, it's just that Nvidia never offered an OpenCL "2.0" app. they jumped straight from 1.2 to 3.0, skipping 2.0 completely. but 3.0 provides backward compatibility for the required OpenCL 2.0 features.

Interesting! Apart from this

Interesting! Apart from this R5 240, i also have a Sapphire HD 7750 on another pc(13064592), it also runs Opencl 1.2 and exhibits the same behavior, FGRPB1G runs fine, and while it gets BRP7 tasks, half of the completed tasks get invalidated, the other half gets validated just fine. So, for efficiency, i restricted that pc to FGRPB1G only on GPU.

Out of curiosity (I am known as Curious George if you didn't know), what are you running your 5 GPUs on?

A mining rig?  Any chance you could give a picture or two?

If you were to switch over to an AMD Threadripper Pro and go with a custom loop water cooling solution, you could have a ASUS Pro WS WRX80E-SAGE SE WIFI AMD Threadripper Pro EATX workstation motherboard which has 7 PCIe slots.

TR-Pro motherboard here

I would also put the Asrock WRX80 Creator board into consideration for the Threadripper Pro system.

I know the ASRock has been

I know the ASRock has been around for about 20 yr.  But I always thought that it was an offshoot of ASUS Motherboards, making MBs at a cheaper and less costly way than ASUS.  Why?  I dunno... I just couldn't get it out of my head, and I don't know why I got that idea or where it came from.  Your thoughts?  Am I goofy, or what...?

You can read history

You can read history here. Asrock wikipedia entry Old entry, not current.

They make good products, certainly not cheap.  Also they have a workstation division that markets professional boards as Asrock Rack.   Again, certainly not a producer of cheap products.

A computer store owner told me that too, he would talk to all the reps as he sold everything from high end to middle and even low end stuff. I bought several $3 USB keyboards that still work great after over 10 years, they are black with bright yellow keys so are easy to see.

I guess I wasn't dreaming... 

I guess I wasn't dreaming...  ASRock was an offshoot from ASUS ( actually ASUSTek Computer Inc. ) in 2002.

And yes, I know that they are making great strides in producing very good motherboards.  So I guess that maybe I could look into them with a little more effort.   ;>)

The very first ASRock mb I bought failed, a capacitor blew, and the company told me they would NOT replace or repair or give me my money back because I installed it in my pc and not some 'company', I didn't buy another one for a LONG time afterwards but have since bought 1 or 2 that have been just fine. At that time I had been installing and replacing mb's for both companies and myself for YEARS and just bought ASUS or MSI afterwards.
