Hi.

My computer has a GPU Asus Geforce 9600 GT (Nvidia) with CUDA and OpenCL 1.0 support.

I've never been able to download any Enigma@home GPU task.

Are there any reason for that problem?

Thanks

Well

I read at another thread at this forum that it's necessary for Enigma@home BOINC GPU crunching, to install the apropiated app and app_info.xml file.

Can somobody where can I found detailed explanations about the procedure to follow?

I want to test with my old Nvidia and ATI GPUs. I think this is the repository:

https://github.com/VE3NEA/enigma-cuda

Which files and where must I copy them to my local computer?

I found app_info.xml file with this info:

1, BOINC installed as a service?
2, Is the GPU an option in the ACTIVITY tab?
3, Did you install drivers from Nvidia, or did Windows install them?

Ok, but why are not downloading Enigma@home GPU tasks at any of my GPU (I have old ATI and old Nvidia GPU's)?

Are there any web where I can see the minimun requeriments for crunching Enigma@home GPU tasks ?

looking at the GPU results returned I can't see your card, and looking at the card spec, it may be below requirements.

This is the BOINC log about my GPU:

06/11/2017 12:50:34 | | CUDA: NVIDIA GPU 0: GeForce 9600 GT (driver version 342.01, CUDA version 6.5, compute capability 1.1, 1024MB, 942MB available, 312 GFLOPS peak)
06/11/2017 12:50:34 | | OpenCL: NVIDIA GPU 0: GeForce 9600 GT (driver version 342.01, device version OpenCL 1.0 CUDA, 1024MB, 942MB available, 312 GFLOPS peak)


Where can I found the minimun GPU requeriments for Enigma@home?

Thanks

The BETA CUDA app's name says FERMI indicating that it needed to be a FERMI based (NVidia) card or newer. However, the production application is using OpenCL. It is possible that the requirements are still the same as far as FERMI goes. The 9600 GT was long before the FERMI cards were released. I do not know of an official requirements list though. I recommend trying it on another project that still supports the older cards just to verify that BOINC is indeed working right with them. I would suggest Moo! as it still supports CAL and therefore much older ATI (AMD) cards as well.
