Hi

This week I was able to get my GPU up and running (I am working on compiling a "what I did list" for this forum), but then I stumbled into a peculiar problem with Cullen/Woodall Prime Search (Sieve) v1.12 (cuda23) tasks. They all error out after 1-3 GPU seconds (10-20 CPU seconds).

System:
- Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3HRev 2.1 motherboard. BIOS version FF
- 16 GByte RAM distributed on four 4 GByte modules (ganged mode)
- AMD Phenom II 1100T 6-core processor
- GeForce GTX 460 (336 Cuda processors, 1 GByte RAM)
- Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit version
- NVIDIA driver version 260.19.44

Task example giving this output:

<core_client_version>6.10.58</core_client_version>

The peculiar thing, for me :-), is that every Proth Prime Search (Sieve) v1.38 (cuda23) tasks runs perfectly. I have read that for a while ago some of the CW cuda tasks has some error in it, but I don't think this is the case now. I can't really see that it is a GPU hardware error, since a heavy load of PPS cuda tasks has finished without errors and still runs perfectly. GPU temperature is 74-75 degrees Celsius, far below the maximum of 104. Does anyone have a clue?

With very best regards

The driver 260.19.X is known for problems and the beta driver 270.26 does a good job.
Please have also a look in the thread CWPSieve CUDA testing.
