I am pleased to announce that we will be hosting our first project challenge!

Rainbow Resurrection: 2012-04-07 16:00:00 GMT - 2012-04-10 16:00:00 GMT

This 72 hour challenge will feature Primegrid style user and team statistics and only work handed out after the start time and returned before the completion time will be counted. In addition all WUs that are part of the challenge will receive 1.25x the credit that is received ordinarily.

The reason for this challenge is two fold:
1) The new hardware has been performing excellently and is averaging less than 20% utilization
2) An ATI/OpenCL app version is in early alpha stages and this challenge will be helpful in seeing if we can handle full 24/7 CPU+GPU where ATI will be added in the future.

Oooh. Exciting. :)

What WUs will be counted as part of the challenge? Both CPU and GPU?

All WUs, so yes both CPU and GPU.

Wow, I've already received my first ATI opencl WUs!!!

Runtime on my HD 5850 is a bit over 1 hour (as you can see here), so there's definitely room left for optimization.

My ATI PCs is screaming for work but I get that dreaded message:
2012/04/02 17:46:19 PM DistrRTgen Sending scheduler request: To fetch work.
2012/04/02 17:46:19 PM DistrRTgen Requesting new tasks for GPU
2012/04/02 17:46:23 PM DistrRTgen Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
2012/04/02 17:46:23 PM DistrRTgen Message from server: No work available

I rechecked my preferences and it is set for ATI work
CPU tasks is running fine

Do I have to install Boinc Client 7xx ?

ID35169 &35168 both Win XP x32 pro HD5850

I'm using BOINC version 7.0.20 and I've checked the TEST option in the DistrRTgen settings.

EDIT

I guess the first ATI task are in Alpha stage

I ran 3 on a HD5850 (OCd to 850MHz) Dual core Win XP pro 32 and the completed in 65 minutes.
I could only get tasks when I upgraded Boinc Manager from 6.10.58 to 7.0.20
Compared to Moo on the same machine it produce only 66% credits
Moo= 3.28 cr/sec
Distr= 2.26 cr/sec
GPU usage running at 98% but it was running a lot cooler than Moo 72 Deg C to 63 Deg C at Distr

On a second PC a quad Win XP Pro 32 with a HD6750 it completed in 120 minutes.
I noticed it's running only @ 86% GPU usage but when I freed a CPU core it jumped up to 98% GPU

Hope this info will help to improve the ATI app

Make sure that you have both "Use ATI GPU" and "Run test applications?" set to 'yes' in your DistrRTgen preferences.

already figured that out earlier, even got the v7 of boinc as mentioned by others, only thing i notice if the version i got says 7.0.23 instead of 7.0.20 like other have said they used.

What ATI work ;) Yes, it is alpha but development is moving along that a test app for the plan class was due. We intended to have the challenge before this "secret" leaked but for those that wish to try should be prepared for potential pitfalls including at least:
1) serious trouble for those OC'ed for down-clocking, performance, and heat
2) totally hit and miss on which cards work well and massively impacted by your CPU assignment *esp* if you run with HT on
3) random crashes, invalid WUs, etc.
4) You *must* run a 7.x client which itself is beta
5) At first you needed OpenCL 1.1 but this was fixed and you only need 1.0
6) suspend/resume of any WU by the user or by BOINC, computer restart, etc. seems to almost 100% of the time lead to the WU being invalid

The ATI work pool is the same GPU work pool as used by the Nvidia Cuda app plan class so if we are really out of work then it means no GPUs are getting any work.

Also, CPU/GPU each completed WU is 4000000 bytes so keep this in mind! No, really there isn't a better way to deal with the upload size currently (it use to be 9000000, then 8000000, then 5000000 bytes each) and no the data does not compress as it is binary and tightly packed at that. There is an ugly hack to cut the uploads down to 3500000 bytes each but this will not be done before the challenge. It is exceedingly easy with 2-3+ GPUs to compute faster than you can upload for many connections. My single GTX 470 keeps my 384kbps upstream busy some 25-35% of the time.
