So does GPU3 really work on ATI cards now?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a 5850 sitting in my media PC now and I was thinking about putting it folding. I installed the GPU3 client, but it just sits on idle...tells me the core is not engadged. From the log it looks like it even downloaded a WU, but just didnt' start it.

There a trick for this? For gigles I tried adding the GPU2 flag, but that didn't help.

Check out this link, you want to install/run Client v7. You should see some pretty nice PPD out of that card too

I just used the link for GPU3 off the website. I figured that would be the newest one. I will check to see what version I have


yeah crap...looks like I have release 6.4. I will try it again.

I am thinking this will produce pretty good. Since my wife is too daunted by the deadly "power button" I have to leave this machine on all the time anyway. I will occationally play some PS2 games on it, but other than that I don't think I will have to pause or shut off the folding. It should be able to play a bluray and fold right? For that matter it might be Ok to run with the PS2 emulator.
