1) Message boards : Number crunching : What "Latest ATI Driver" do I need for Mountain Lion? (Message 56753)
Posted 2975 days ago by mlivingstone
Well, I'm the original poster, and I have turned on GPU, ATI, Proth Sieve but I am still not getting work units to my Mountain Lion running Macintosh

Nor am I getting any workunits in a couple of other Boinc projects that claim to support Macintosh ATI OpenCL work units which is why I am seeking input from any Mac users as to whether they are getting ATI OpenCL work units?

Thanks!

Hello!

I am running the current Boinc client (7.0.31) on a AMD Radeon HD 6970M equipped 27" iMac with Mountain Lion installed. I have turned on ATI in the preferences and it says it is asking for ATI work units but then it just tells me:

Fri 27 Jul 11:05:22 2012 | PrimeGrid | Message from server: ATI GPU: Upgrade to the latest driver to process tasks using your computer's GPU
Fri 27 Jul 11:05:22 2012 | PrimeGrid | No work sent
Fri 27 Jul 11:05:22 2012 | PrimeGrid | No work is available for 321 (Sieve)
Fri 27 Jul 11:05:22 2012 | PrimeGrid | Message from server: No work available for the applications you have selected. Please check your project preferences on the web site.


What drivers are these, and where do I get it? If I go to the download section at the amd site, the drop down boxes do not seem to give me the option to download for my setup? I seem to get the same sort of response from other Boinc projects that claim to be Mac ATI compatible too :-(

Here are my startup parameters:

Any help gratefully received!
