Are you running the latest drivers? (try Windows Update)
If so, which version of the toolkit are you running?
we definitely support that card.
Hopefully we'll sort this out.
thanks for reporting the problem!
Windows Update has completely updated and no updates are hidden.
I have installed the newest video card driver (http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx?p=win7/windows-7-64bit 1/27/2010), and I'm running pixel bender version 1.5.1, Build 02
We're running the 3870 X2 in automation so we expect it to work. That said, we're running that card on an xp32 system so the problem you're seeing may be related to our interaction with win7 and the win7 graphics drivers. Would you please send us the output of running SnifferGPU on your machine. You'll need to run SnifferGPU from the commandline. SnifferGPU lives at the same level as the Pixel Bender Toolkit executable ("pixel_bender_toolkit.exe") on windows. The SnifferGPU executable is named, "sniffer_gpu.exe". Thanks for your help.
Thanks! Nothing stands out in the SnifferGPU output, so we're going to have to try to reproduce your configuration, 64-bit Win7 running an ATI HD3870. Just to be clear, you're not running both the 3200 and the 3870 in the same machine, correct?
That is correct, the HD3200 is on my HP Touchsmart laptop. There's no separate graphics card on that machine.
The HD3870 is on my desktop, which uses a MSI P35 Platinum Combo. There's no graphics chip on that motherboard.
So the only two things they have in common are the gpu chips being from the HD3000 range, and that they both run Windows 7 64-Bit.
We believe this is fixed for the next Pixel Bender Toolkit release. In the meantime, you might try dropping back to the Catalyst 9.11 or 9.10 release of the graphics drivers to see if that gets you around this problem. Let us know what you find if you decide to go that route.
