ATI 10.8 drivers
« on: 26 Aug 2010, 03:26:58 pm »

Just saw this over on the BOINC Forums
Quote
I just updated to the new 10.8 Catalyst drivers and apps for my ATI 5970's and now all GPU apps are failing. I have currently suspended GPU WU downloads, but thought you might someone may be able to tell me what is causing the unhanded exception... bad install, incomparability, or what.

The behavior is the WU counts down the minutes to completion, but never stops nor does the progress indicator move from the initial 0.000%.

Thought I should let you guys know but wasn't sure if this is the right place to post it.

Thanks Perryjay, I've got the 10-8 drivers installed and have no issues with Raistmers ATI AP build.
Guess it must be some applications that don't like the new drivers?

I see the OP was having trouble at Collatz and Milkyway.  Glad to hear it doesn't effect Raistmer's work on your rig.

Thanks, i've also seen that thread, got Cat 10.8 downloaded last night, not tried it yet, as i'll probably have to fix it like i did Cat 10.7,  Roll Eyes

Also works fine on my Collatz tasks, which he reported his failed on - looks like ti could have been a bad install or other machine specific issue rather than driver issue

That's great to hear Claggy but I figured better safe than sorry.

Always better safe than sorry Cheesy
Had to check and make sure that Collatz worked with the new drivers after I read your post, as haven't had any since I installed the new drivers. Need something to keep that card warm when the AP tasks run out  Grin

10.8 also works fine here with AP, Collatz and DnetC, which is all I have tried.

I don't think they are the source of the problems.

OP posted at Milkyway

Figured out the root of the problem... had 2 system changes and blamed the usual suspect when it was another. It is not the Catalyst update, but is dealing with monitor setup.

Situation where GPU Units function: Dual 5970 in non-crossfire or crossfire mode when 2 monitors are hooked up to one graphics card.

Situation where GPU Units do NOT Function: Dual 5970 in non-crossfire with 3 monitors hooked up. 2 on the 1st card and 1 on the second.

(crossfire does not work when using 2 cards and the 3 dvi connections for 3 monitors (card 1 x 2dvi, card 2 x 1 dvi hooked-up))

With a 2 monitor dvi setup on one card the WU work installing the 3rd monitor dvi on the second card dvi the work units do not progress.

For me, last Catalyst that work fine with Boinc (64-bit) is Catalyst 10.3.  From 10.4 onwards, Boinc doesn't see the ATI HD5850 GPU, saying GPU missing... Seems like some issue between 64bit Catalyst drivers and Boinc x64. Nothing to do with Raistmers buids, affects also Collatz and Milkyway. So I am still on 10.3, until the problem is resolved...

Config is Win7 Home Premium 64-bit, ATI HD5850 and GTS250.

UPDATE: Problem seems to be in hybrid multigpu config (ATI and Nvidia together) and Catalyst CAL.

Explanation and workaround here:

I think in Cat10.9 these problems have disappeared.
