    Default Warning...Catalyst 7.1 Drivers do NOT work

    This is relevant to anyone folding with a GPU at present.

    The new Catalyst drivers released today 2007/01/10, version 7.1 (8.33) do not work with regard to folding on your GPU. The new drivers will cause the folding GPU core to continuously EUE on WUs, producing an "mdrun_gpu returned 114" error.

    The only versions of Catalyst that work with the GPU client are:
    • 6.5
    • 6.10
    • 6.11
    The GPU client will work with these drivers with a significant performance hit:
    • 6.6
    • 6.7
    The following drivers do not work at all with the GPU client:
    • 6.8
    • 6.9
    • 6.12
    • 7.1
    Tested with X1900XT 256 on Windows XP 32bit

    I haven't had a single problem with 7.1 drivers with my Radeon x1300. But I do have a question, what is making this graphics card so under powered? As my 6600GT was a lot more powerful than this one.

    this is just for folding, not for gaming etc. If you use an ATI X1900 or above card for folding certain drivers either don't work or have large performance penalties.

    The 6600GT is actually a better card than the X1300 on paper as you can see below. Just because a card is newer certainly doesn't means its better, the 6600GT was one of the best bang for buck cards ever made.

    Code:
                        X1300       6600GT
    Vertex Pipelines:   2           3
     Pixel Pipelines:   4           8
                rops:   4           4
          Core Clock:   600         500
       Texture Units:   4           8
      mem controller:   128 bit     128 bit

    Was indeed a great card. Maybe an idea for a poll. The top five graphics cards of all time.
