My computer has an integrated AMD 760G GPU with 512MD of dedicated memory.

When Boinc Manager starts I can see this message into the log register:

07/09/2017 12:00:12 | | CAL: ATI GPU 0: ATI Radeon HD 2300/2400/3200/4200 (RV610) (CAL version 1.4.344, 512MB, 480MB available, 56 GFLOPS peak)

But never downloads SETI GPU, for example, or other GPU projects tasks.


Can I solve this issue?

CAL was the old ATI method of doing calculations on the GPU. They themselves have long since dropped it in favor of OpenCL.
However, the GPU on that chipset (Radeon HD 3000) does not support OpenCL. None of the projects that I know of any longer supports CAL applications, because they were cumbersome and error prone.

Minimum required GPU with full support of OpenCL 1.0 is a HD 5000 series these days.
Please do not private message me for tech support. Use the forums for that. Tech PMs will be ignored.
