AMD HD 7900 series driver update for folding@home
 
Those of you who have 79xx cards and had some issues folding can try the new driver:
http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles...C11Driver.aspx

edit: Seems the download link on AMDs site linked to the old drivers :doh:...take a close look before downloading these to see if AMD fixed their goof.

This line of the release notes caught my attention:
Quote:

Resolved issues: highlights of the 8.921.2 RC11 AMD Radeon HD 7900 driver:

      • Folding@Home: intermittent stability issues have been resolved for the OpenCL version of Folding@Home

A bunch of gaming stuff fixed too, but who games on their GPUs anywho? ;p

I can't verify this driver, as I don't have the card. Just FYI

If anyone can actually ENABLE or have seen people who have enabled F@H's OpenCL app on a Southern Islands card, please post.

I may just not be setting things up correctly (their new UI sucks IMO) but for the life of me the darn thing won't work.
