Hi All

Im trying to get my 290x folding, but when I try add it on [email protected] it just says something along the lines of "no gpu found on local". Im assuming this is because the card is not recognized by [email protected] yet, is there any way I can get it recognized?

Thats the spirit, folding from day one. I guess it will take some time before they support 290 series for [email protected], but i m really interested to see some ppd both stock and oc'ed speeds.

If it is, without any optimizations for the albeit small differences, you might be looking at yields in the margin of last gen cards, or worse - same clock for clock performance as them. You would strive for forcing it to be recognized as another card, no?

(I am just throwing wild guesses so bear with me.)

I think I just figured it out.

When taking a look through the GPUs file, I found

Code:

Code:
0x1002:0x6790:1:5:Tahiti0x1002:0x6791:1:5:Tahiti0x1002:0x6792:1:5:Tahiti0x1002:0x6798:1:5:Tahiti XT [Radeon HD 7970]
which refers as to which devices are Radeon HD 7970 GPUs.

So after a lookup I confirmed that ven_1002&dev_6790, etc are indeed those GPUs.
So,
open Device Manager, go to your Display Adapters > X9 290 Properties > Details tab and select Hardware Ids. Note them down.
Now look up the line I quoted (just Ctrl+F for a '7970' ) and before the brackets, input them so it looks like this:

Code:

Code:
0x1002:0x6790:1:5:Tahiti0x1002:0x6791:1:5:Tahiti0x1002:0x6792:1:5:Tahiti0x1002:0x6798:1:5:Tahiti XT0x****:0x****:1:5[Radeon HD 7970]
I'm not sure what the last two values :)1:5) refer to, but I assume it has something to do with architecture. And since the R9 Hawaii series are already defined as such (source), I suppose these are the values you seek.
^
assumption made also because 6000-series and the time-related FirePros are :1:4.

Post back once you try it!

Edit: Actually the first value (1) represents Vendor. 1 for AMD/ATI and NVidia cards go under '2'. And the last two bytes must be architecture, because Fermis end in :2:2; Keplers in :2:3, etc.

Edit2: Summarized description for GPUs.txt, in case it hasn't been posted and somebody finds it useful:

[VendorID]:[DeviceID]:[VendorEnumerate]:[ArchitectureEnumerate]:[GPU]
E.g.
0x10de:0x1180:2:3:GK104 = NVidia:GTX680:NVidia:Kepler:GK104

290X is probably more closely related to the 7790, architecture wise (both are GCN 1.1).

Heres one of 4:

So with Blameless' post taken into account try adding this:

Code:

Code:
0x1002:0x67b0:1:5:Bonaire XT
Right before

Code:

Code:
[Radeon HD 7790]
So it looks something like this:
LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01

And Blameless thanks for clarifying that!

I'm not that familiar with ATI/AMD's products.

Edit: requesting confirmation if it should be noted as 'Bonaire XT'. I assume the client might read it and the GPU will be recognized as such in human-readable format?

Bonaire is the code name for the much smaller 7790 die.

R290X uses the Hawaii XT part (which shares the same shader uarc as Bonaire).

Anyway, the name in the txt is probably just for reference. You could likely call it 'Samwise Gamgie PRO' without problems.

Got it. GCN is the architecture; Bonaire is the die codename.

(IIRC it was ~25% smaller than Tahiti, right?)

Now I want to read up more on Hawaii/Bonaire.

And at some point I will also test whether the name is associated with any specific optimizations on any projects for that chip, or just used for reference.
I am curious, it would be interesting if specific work units are pushed with higher priority to some chips.

Yeah and I actually feel sorry that I don't have an unsupported (yet) GPU in order to try to cheat it.

READ THIS. You cannot just modify the gpu.txt file and fold on your GPU. It is required that the GPU is added to the GPU.txt file and on the Assignment Servers. Editing just the .txt file will change nothing.
