After some beta testing the application is now available.

"Fermi Application Released & Available", perhaps!

Selection instructions would also help.

and how can we make it UN available? Now my card wont get any new WUs because "fermi-class is needed". If I have to buy ANOTHER video card for this project, I am SO outta here (this will be the fifth card!)

Change your GPUGrid Preferences so that you only have ACEMD2 selected.

Could somebody check and clarify this advice, please?

I've just set up a new GTX 470 (host 71413), and attached with preferences

ACEMD: no
ACEMD ver 2.0: yes
ACEMD beta: no

That got me a download of acemd2_6.03 with Cuda 2.2 DLLs - just the same as my 9800GTs. It failed (not unexpected).

From the Applications page, I need v6.73 of 'Full-atom molecular dynamics', not 'ACEMD - GPU molecular dynamics' at all. It's all very confusing, even for an experienced user.

I think you need to have ACEMD = yes and ACEMD ver 2.0 = no

The advice you've seen above was a way to avoid these units if I've read correctly.

That was timely - had to go out for a while, and came back in just as the replies were posted (if I can include the PMs in a general reponse).

Yes, I think I'd worked out that I needed the #1 slot enabled for work to get these 6.73s (no longer Beta, by my reading of the situation). I've already created a venue to keep them separate from the 9800GTs.

It's still a bit confusing that what is called "Full-atom molecular dynamics" on the Applications page is called "acemd" on the Server status page, and "ACEMD" on the preferences page: whereas the "ACEMD" on the Applications page is called "acemd2" and "ACEMD ver 2.0" on the other two pages.

And downright frustrating that the server says that none of the "GPU Results ready to send" are actually available!

Hi, to clarify this I attempted to rename the "user-friendly" app names to be more consistent and possibly friendlier. This should also make it clear that "acemd" is old and is not getting any more WUs.

acemd -> ACEMD: full-atom molecular dynamics (old)
acemd2 -> ACEMD2: GPU molecular dynamics (acemd2)

I have none of these choices listed under my GPUGrid Preferences and my GTX 470 client is still running ACEMD2: GPU molecular dynamics v6.05 (cuda30)

How do I access the WU choices?

The choices have been removed, GPUGrid has consolidated some of the app versions and is also handling the distribution entirely from the server. It looks like you are processing everything without error so I would say that is good and let it just keep running :thumbsup:
