Hello,

I don't see any topics on the FirePro laptop graphics cards. I have an HP Elitebook with the Firepro M5800 and I saw on this page "https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison" That it can do 60Mhash/s on ubuntu.

I have installed the latest graphics drivers and the SDK 2.4 but in windows 7 it does not detect it as an OpenCL device it only detects the CPU as OpenCL. Does this mean the FirePro cannot be used in Windows 7 to mine? Or is there something else I need to install to get it to work?

You are going to want to use the 2.1 or 2.2 SDK because I think the 2.4 is 5-10% slower, but first things first. Do you know for sure if the card you have supports OpenCL? I know the site lists the card, but perhaps there was a mix up?

FirePro M5800 does support OpenCL. Beyond that, I don't know. Keep playing around with it. Try a restart, make sure you have the correct catalyst drivers.

Perhaps it's time to play around with Linux?  Grin

Don't mix your coins someone said isn't legal

Bah, this is bizarre.

I managed to get it working on one laptop with the FirePro M5800. After uninstalling and reinstalling drivers and SDKs over and over somehow it started working. However I have a second laptop the exact same model/hardware when I installed the drivers and SDK it says OpenCL is not supported with the current drivers though they are the exact drivers from the first laptop. After messing with it for 2 hours like I did on the first, still not working, :|

I managed to get 60Mhash/s on the first Laptop with the FirePro M5800

I had to do something similar, it wants the drivers and SDK installed in a specific order, but certain driver versions don't want to work with certain SDK versions so I had to kinda try all of them, installing them randomly until I finally got it to work using the 2.2SDK and the 11.4 driver, I believe.
