Trying out the new GPU3

Postby DL13 » Sun Aug 01, 2010 9:27 pm

Well I have bin so busy that I haven't fold for the team or any thing else and every thing is still hectic. The last time I was folding the old GPU2 was causing my rig and there wasn't any real solution to fix it until F@H cam out with a new client, now there is and nothing mention about ATI cards on the Folding forum that GPU3 will work with 5870, so I still downloaded the new client and see what happens.
Any one using the new client with a 5870, if so how is it working out? It seems like F@H is only working to cater for Nvidia, kinda suck for ATI users.

I wonder if that is more on Ati then F@H though. It just seems that Nvidia is doing a better job at pushing GPGPU and CUDA then Ati has been with their alternatives.
