    Anyone know why my ATI Radeon 3850 AGP won't get any WUs? I was folding on it sometime 2010 until the socket 939 board it was on died, but now that I can run it again I can't get any WUs in the old V6 GPU2 client, F@H Tracker V2 or the Stanford V7 client. Running XP and 12.1 hotfix drivers on an ASRock AM2NF3-VSTA with a Phenom II X4 955BE @ 3.8GHz.

    With my folding/crunching rig down for the count for a while (getting replaced with a new machine next week), I figure I would fold with my 7970 for the time being. So.. are they at leat ok at folding? Should I be using the v7 client? Any tips? :D

    I'm using both of mine to fold with NP.They fold with some decent numbers, nothing like a Nvidia card. I also use the ver. 7 client.

    erocker: You HAVE to use client V7 in order to use core_16, which does give good points per watt on the AMD GPU's. According to theoneandonlymrk, the client will now auto detect the AMD GPU's and start with the correct core. It used to be a multi-step process.

    deffinately the V7 client ,it tends to need no setup(config flags as it picks x16 Wu's up straight away(best))) with the latest beta and im on cat 12.4 , i did get a slight ppd increase this driver release ,not much

    and the client tends to be reasonably easy on gpus, mine obv run warm but games need higher volts for eg

    oh and i held off retireing my shitter so long ive unretired it:)

    I share those thoughts. It's always been a great community effort here, and it's a shame that others have ruined what this challenge used to be about.

    Whether we join this year's CC or not, I'll move over my crunchers to the F@H team during that time for old time's sakes :)

    Finally got my damn 460s working again with the 285.62 driver from TPU, as well as disabling core unlocking on my Sempron 130 as the disabled core actually caused some weird corruption in Google Chrome and Microsoft Security Essentials would just sit on the "Installing..." screen until I disabled the core. Got credit for a 7644 and a 7643 I believe (both cards finish at the same time).

    I think AMD gets picked on too much for crappy drivers, as NVIDIA has apparently half-assed the drivers after 285.62 and broken GTX 460s (my other Fermis seem fine though).

    Can't get these 6850s folding at all. Tried just about every revision of the v7 client, CCC drivers, etc with no change. They are recognized and pull down WUs, but they never start working. They stay at 0% load and power saving clocks.

    Any advice? Tempted just to move them for Nvidia cards. So far AMD and the ppl @ F@H have not impressed me with this supposedly 'improved and streamlined' v7 client. I still use console clients on my main computer.

    Have you tried adding the "client-type" "advanced" parameter to them? My 6950 is working on an 11293 and I'm pretty sure my 5770 and 6670 in my dad's office PC have been going nonstop too.

    Alright, I see what its going. For some reason its running the Core16 program on the CPU not the GPU. What a weird thing to do. Anyone have an idea how to get it back on the right track? Using 12.2 CCC right now and 7.1.52 v7 client.

    Thanks,

    You should be able to change your view to Expert, hit Configure and remove the CPU slot/add GPU slots.
