A bit too techy for my small brain but could be useful info to some:

This issue has been ongoing since the RX5700 and RX5700XT was released. OpenCL compute is broken on these GPUs (unclear at this time if it’s hardware or drivers related) and they produce invalid results.

The problem is that these RX5700s are cross validating their incorrect results with each other on occasion. If left unchecked this has serious implications for the integrity of the science database.

More information can be found here: https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=84508&sort_style=6&start=0

There are reports that these GPUs are causing issues with other projects as well. If you are running any of these GPUs at SETI@home, please remove it from the project immediately until a working driver update is confirmed.
