From the system section of the log, Windows 7 Ultimate and 64 bit. I don't think the version of Catalyst has been mentioned or asked for before.

As for the OpenCL level, the ATI site says 1.1, so should be more equivalent to a 5870. But how much so is not clear since it was sold as a high end workstation card.

When you install the latest Catalyst drivers, OpenCL is also installed. If you have not done that's probably half of the problem you're having. Without supported drivers, it doesn't matter what GPUs.txt says.

Just to save time, if Cat 12.4 or newer, you may need to drop back to 12.1 or 12.2 to make sure OpenCL is getting installed/updated correctly. There have been a few reports of issues with 12.4/OpenCL. Don't know the exact issue, but using an older driver did help.

"Cat" is short for the Catalyst drivers.
