Yes, one niche BOINC/Collatz had was that it still supported these old GPUs. I have something else I prefer to use newer hardware for.

If the "AMD Radeon HD 4800 or later graphics card" requirement is for real from now on, and a Radeon HD 4350 with OpenCL is no longer supported, then I guess the project leader is not expecting any more participation from people like me.

Ever since solo_collatz was removed, I haven't been able to get any WUs. The System Requirements is now saying HD 4800 or later. Did you deliberately drop support of HD 4350? Why?

read below plz

Sorry, but message 21562 seems to talk about CAL/Brook+ drivers. My GPU uses OpenCL (1.0). Is the new sieve app not compatible with the old OpenCL drivers that support my Radeon HD 4350, and that I've been using for several months running solo_collatz?

Every time I request work, I just get "Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks". It doesn't given any hint whatsoever why it's not giving me any new tasks. It would be nice if it did.

I've been contributing to the Collatz project since last August using an ATI Radeon HD 4350 GPU. So it sounds like you are planning to restore support for this GPU at some point, correct? Will I again be able to use the GPU with extremely little CPU usage as I have been able to do up until this recent outage?

I note that I use my CPU cores for GIMPS, but since my GPU was not compatible for GIMPS, I was happy to use it for Collatz, as long as CPU usage was insignificant. I am now wondering if I'll ever do another Collatz project task.
