There are just the lastest two versions available from Intel (3960 and 3907). But I don't want to run older versions as they have other issues (tearing in videos etc.)

I think I'll stop using the OpenCL application, it feels a bit pointless.

From 58 OpenCL WU's there are right now:
25 pending (10 of them because they're inconclusive)
19 invalid
14 valid

oops sorry.
I tried the previous version earlier, which was even worse.
I guess the version has to match the one the wingman is using.

As I said earlier, it's running the latest version.

But there is one that took 4621s and validated. But it took way to long compared to the other host (using a HD4600 too)

It's their latest driver. It's changelog said "Experience up to 30% improvement in performance in certain OpenCL workloads"
So probably it changed somthing in the way calculations are done.

Hi,

I recently bought an i5-4690K which i'm running at stock settings.
So far I have many invalid results using the opencl application on the HD4600 (rough estimate: about 50%).
What could be wrong?

Two examples:

http://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/result.php?resultid=462795181

I've tested the RAM using memtest86 and the CPU using prime95 and haven't detected any errors. CPU tasks seem to run fine.

You can try to run http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/ to check if it's running in x16 3.0 mode.

Also make sure, that the card is running in the fastest possible PCIe-Mode (3.0 if possible)

I cannot find myself listed as being a ranked competitor on the Challenge, why?
Thank you for your help


Which list are you referring to?

I have now some results from S6LV:

Without HT:
2 Results in avg. 87875s

With HT enabled:
4 Results in avg. 111155s

It's a pretty amazing gain.
