Default Quad-GPU cruncher (9600GSO x4) cannot run WCG HCC CPU WUs?

I get a notice saying it cannot run on my GPU. Running newest NV Win7 64-bit driver. 306.xx?

Yet, I have it running on a GT430 on my main rig. Are the 9600GSO cards too old? Even though they are comparable in speed to the GT430?

Edit: Ok, am doing PrimeGrid on the GPU(s). Or at least, I want to. It only detected one GPU.

Interestingly, EVGA Precision Legacy 2.12 only gives me one GPU temp, but it gives the other stats for all 4 GPUs.

What am I doing wrong here?

Here is a list of cards that are unable to participate in HCC GPU. The 9600 GSO, unfortunately, is on the list.


As for your GPU problem, I don't have anything to offer other than maybe trying to yank two of the cards and see if it can at least recognize two.

Which GSO's are you using exactly? Some are a bit more locked down than others.

Also please remember, in WCG each GPU needs one CPU-core ... thus 4 GPUs need 4 cores, which you have, but what about the other work? IIRC it needs 4 cores excusively ... I may be wrong though ...

I ran some quick and dirty benchmarks using app_info and run-times were shorter with 0.2 cores than with 0.25 or 0.15 cores. This is for a Llano laptop which also has a 6650m. The test was done on the 6650m but not on the 6520G which is integrated in to the Llano. Further research should be done if anyone has some time!
