folding with 6970?
 
I'm folding for Braineater as helped me out so I'm returning the favour. I don't know which video card app i'm supposed to use for my video card. After reading some other forums it looks like it doesn't work? Thanks for any help. Cheers.

It's all just so confusing. :bleh:

if you want too GPU folding use nVidia. much more productive than AMD.

Hey hades...try the v7 of the client:
Folding@home - WinGuide

I actually don't use this but I do believe that it should work for AMD cards.

I'm not folding for me so I don't care that much TBH. The person I'm folding for suggested it might not be worth it with the ATI card. I'll just stick with the SMP client I setup from the stickies and see how it goes I gues.

Thanks for posting ne way!

And I like ATI cards ffs why would I want a bloody Nvidia card! :P

Hi Chris,

Looks like all of the download sites for V7 are down.
I went on internet and tried all sites, but no go
Not sure why, perhaps the beta was not ready and are working on second beta release?

I am very interested in giving it a go tho.

Take care......

yes, up from generation 5, the V7 is the folding client for ATI/AMD

I believe its related to the network issues at Pande. From looking quickly at the FF, ALL the download links where broken at one point over the past several days.

Folks wishing to use ATI cards for DC would probably be better off having a look at boinc. It's been a while since I played with it (I think I might still be the owner of the HWC boinc team.... ;) ), but it was much better optimised for ATI hardware.
