An important note for Windows XP users

Po, 17.04.2017 - 22:19
Dear all, GPUGRID will stop supporting Windows XP in April 2018 Every version of the science application we have to maintain costs us time and effort, and it's important that we focus our resources where they can give us the best return. Building and testing Windows XP versions our applications is increasingly difficult now the OS is unsupported by both Microsoft and NVIDIA. There are now fewer than 20 Windows XP machines crunching on GPUGrid, out of a total of over 2500, and it's difficult to justify on-going engineering effort for a small fraction of our capacity. Sadly, this means that it's time for us to stop supporting Windows XP. The recent update to the application will be the last, and will cease to work one year from now. After that time work will only be issued to hosts running Windows 7+ or Linux. If this affects you, please accept my apologies. Your contribution has been greatly appreciated, and I hope that you'll continue to support us. Matt

App update 17 April 2017

Po, 17.04.2017 - 21:49
Dear All, If you've been following other threads on the forums, you'll know that the Windows versions of the science application have recently been updated. There are now two versions, 849 (CUDA 6.5) and 918 (CUDA 8.0), which will be assigned to hosts as follows: * 849 - Windows XP (32 or 64 bit) and any GPU >= sm 3.0 - Any 64bit Windows with a Kepler 3.0 device * 918 - Any 64bit Windows, Vista or later with any GPU > sm 3.0 and driver >= 370.0 The peculiar exception for sm 3.0 devices is due to a compiler problem with CUDA 80 that affects only that hardware version. When that's fixed, hosts with a non-XP Windows will get 918. If you see any behaviour that deviates from this, please report it here. If you think you should be getting work, but aren't please check that your system complies with the above, in particular the driver revision and that the OS is 64 bit.
