Old Quadro 4000 (GF100): Should I expect only 9405PPD?

It seems that a lot of GPU problems revolve around specific versions of drivers. Though NVidia has their own support structure, you can often learn from information reported by others who fold.

@RichieOnTheFold Half of my GPU farm is Quadro 4000 that were working until a few days ago with no changes on my side. If the Quadro 4000 was blacklisted and not supported then it would show up as "Not Supported" in the log. 192.0.2.1 is an address that shows up in the log when there is no WU of that type available. The reason that I know that is I had to retire some AMD Firepro 3D V5800 cards that were still technically supported but FAH but they are single-precision cards. As far as I know, the last project that used single-precision has ended sometime back and Folding leadership has not officially blacklisted those cards but they were never going to get WU.

I am purely speculating but I did see that nvidia-430 drivers dropped support for Fermi architecture cards which the Quadro 4000 are and if Folding upgraded a Nvidia WU building server to newer drivers then it might have dropped support for Fermi cards.

@Joe_H Any thoughts?

Recently, there was further clarification and it turned out that OpenCL 1.1 with Double Precision was the lowest requirement to fold. Thus, your Quadro 4000 is supported and changes done at the Server level may take a while to come into effect. You may try to check by deleting the GPUs.txt file (%AppData%\FAHClient) and then restarting the client. If in doubt, please post your log file here for troubleshooting :)

@PantherX Thanks for the update! I know that @RichieOnTheFold and myself are happy to keep our cards running!

@PantherX @RichieOnTheFold All of my Quadro 4000 cards are back in business again, so thanks again.

I've got an old Dell Precision Workstation with the same card and I also just reach 10k PPD with this card, so everything should be ok...

10k PPD is what I'd get on a 3Ghz quadcore, or 4.5Ghz dual core CPU.
It's crazy how we've advanced so much in terms of performance!
