thanks Jimbo, the driver on that link is the one that I had (that wasn't working). However, I've downgraded now to the driver form windows 7 (9.12.0.0) and on this one I notice little bursts of 3% - 7% GPU usage. So still seems like the GPU is underutilized by FAH. Too bad 'cause I really wanted to leave this thing overnight crunching away.

This is Windows 7, and yes Catalyst did an auto upgrade.

yes I think I mentioned before I had other cards on this box, so it may have started on a RX580 w/crimsom driver. I removed that card and the rx drivers and then put the HD5870 w/the latest drivers I found on AMD for legacy cards (same that jimbo found). Like a day later I noticed the AMD auto-upgrade. I'm leaving the HD5870 on it for now though (now I've reverted to an older driver from 2012 on it--I think it shipped w/Win7 SP1).

yeah FAHBench didn't work for me.

Thanks you for your help Bruce, I think I'm going to leave it as is for now, I've spent too much time (and many bluescreens w/all the driver switching :) trying to get FAH to crunch away on it.

I had the same issue on m old 6950 : on this page, the latest drivers (Crimson Edition 16.2.1 Beta) lack OpenCL support. Use the previous ones (15.7.1).

AMD/ATI believes that Crimson works fine. Can one of you reproduce the problem. Here's what they're asking.
We would like to know the OpenCL runtime version of the working and not working cases (for this, running command 'clinfo' and redirecting the output to a txt file with both the working and non-working drivers [catalyst and crimson drivers] should be a good). This will really be a nice data point for us to proceed with the investigation and possibly repro the issue in house.
