HD 7670 will not fold with driver 15.7.1

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

HD 7670 will not fold with driver 15.7.1

Post by BoredPrinter »

Hi everyone,

I have an old AMD HD 7670 that shows disabled. According to the requirements (https://foldingathome.org/support/faq/i ... ts/?lng=en), it requires an AMD 15.1 device or newer. Here is what I am running.

Details:
FAH 7.6.1
AMD Driver 15.7.1
OpenCL and Open GL Compatibility Pack from Microsoft Store

I have updated the driver to the newest available and installed the OpenCL and OpenGL Compatibility Pack from the Microsoft Store. What else can I try to get this card to fold? Or is it a waste of time trying to get it to work?

Welcome to the folding support forum.

The requirements page is a bit out of date. At some point a new person will be assigned to updating pages like that to get the current level of support listed. The HD 7670 does not support double precision calculations (FP64), and a couple years ago that became a requirement for GPU processing in F@h. The HD 7700 series and above HD 7000 GPUs do support FP64, but are close to end of life due to driver support ending for the older GCN based video cards.
