Issue with GPU

Postby AdmWings » Wed Apr 22, 2020 6:09 pm

I am currently running on MacOS. I try adding my GPU, AMD Radeon Pro 5500M, but it seems to fail, as it does not show up as a slot. Any help would be great
Edit: I am now running windows with Bootcamp, but I am still unable to add the GPU.

If you dual boot to either Linux or Windows

The GPU itself is supported.

Which version of the folding client did you install on the Windows running in Bootcamp? There is a known problem with the latest full release, 7.6.9, where it does not download the GPUs.txt file, and does not detect and configure a GPU for folding. If that is the case, you can download and configure manually, or try the beta version, 7.6.10 - https://foldingathome.org/beta/. That should have that bug fixed.
