Dear all,

Those of you who would like to testdrive an OpenCL app for ATI/AMD cards in an Intel Mac can now do so on our test project, Albert@Home.

Note that only OSX "Lion" (and previews of "Mountain Lion") with ATI/AMD cards are supported at the moment.

If you haven't done so already, you can join Albert@Home just like any other BOINC project by specifying its home URL in BoincManager, in this case

http://albert.phys.uwm.edu

Albert@Home is a pure test project, that is work crunched there is not used for scientific results (as the code used tehere is still experimental), but it really helps us a lot to be able to testdrive our apps there.

Discussion of any problems with this new app should be done in the Albert@Home forum, here:

Thanks,
HB
