Welcome to the F@H Forum LeonardRenner,

I am not sure what model your new GPU was. However, for AMD, there are Projects that are limited to one set of hardware than the other simply because there's a technical limitation where Navi doesn't run FahCore_21 while non-Navi GPUs can run FahCore_21. Thus, if the WU was FahCore_21 and you upgraded to a Navi GPU, then dumping the WU is expected.

Generally speaking, it is recommended to finish folding WUs (use the Finish option in Advanced Control) when upgrading hardware. If in doubt, ask in the Forum or finish :)

Which WU were you folding on the HD 5550? That GPU does not support Double Precision (FP64) and was removed from the supported list a while ago.

But in any case, while it might be desirable that a WU continue on with a different GPU, architectural changes between generations usually mean there is a chance that the calculations will be different.

Welcome to Folding@Home!

Your HD 5550 is a card in the Terascale family, they used instructions called VLIW

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TeraScale ... chitecture)#TeraScale_2
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Very_long ... ction_word

After 3 generations of Terascale, AMD used GCN Instructions for 5 generations.


Most recently, AMD has moved to another instruction set named RDNA.


None of these are interchangeable, and none are interchangeable with the various Nvidia or Intel GPUs.
