    So set up the basic clients on my laptop, but can't get fahmon to recognize them, but remember that I had started using something different for monitoring, any suggestions?

    Both my 4870 and 4850 loop with..
    Code:
    Run: exception thrown in GuardedRun -- Gromacs cannot continue further.
    ..ever since updating to 11.12 drivers. Is this problem limited to 4000 series cards, or is anyone else getting this?

    Relevant link number one and relevant link number two.

    Edit: 4870 running P5736, 4850 running P5737

    Roll back your drivers XVI and see what happens. Same thing happens to Nvidia drivers when they first come out.

    so how does the v7 client do with AMD cards, in particular a 6870? i would like to start Folding/WCG again and am wondering about F@H with AMD cards.

    ^^^

    Don't have any experiences with both AMD cards and V7 but I hear they put out some decent points

    Not really. A GTS250 does the same PPD as a 6850.

    DRDNA, if you look back at post 1854, you will see that someone else is also having problems with AMD at this time. Seems to be something wrong with the latest drivers. You may want to roll back to a previous version.

    Crap that was what I was afraid of! Oh well ...how about the VMware Player method of folding on the ATI GPU? 4870X2

    bogmali if you have some insight to the VMware player or something we can work off line?

    I keep my two 4800-series cards in crossfire when I fold. You just have to add the -force-gpu to at least the second card (-gpu 1). I add it to both for redundancy.

    What I don't understand is how AMD does well in compute benchmarks, but relatively terrible at folding. Additionally, I am DROOLING over the 7000 series cards. I can't wait to see how well they fold.

    Well I posted my issue over at Folding at home forum and PantherX advised to use V7 which I thought was only for 5000 series and up ATI cards...I asked PantherX to confirm that it should work with the 4000 series and specifically the 4870X2...I will post what he says and the results if indeed it does work.


    now I am at >> 107 DRDNA 491408

    The V7 client works with all Folding cards, it's just that it is the only way to get the FAHcore_16 WU's for the 5000 series and newer. It may even be better at getting the troublesome X2 cards to work. Give it a try and see what happens.
