When running an asteroids at home gpu task on my amd R5 240, I've been getting a VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE bluescreen, and frequent graphics driver error, I've Reinstalled drivers and checked the temps, its not overheating, its even cooler that it is on other projects tasks. Online it says this can be related to drivers, overheating, and overloading. Im assuming its overloading it but i don't know why.

Hi, the app has some driver issues on slow cards, especially on the Radeon R5 family + Windows

we will try to fix it in the code, but for now, disabling TDR protection might work

anyway, don't expect a good performance. I would estimate ~6 hours for a single work unit. Your CPU doesn't even support AVX, but it's most likely a more effective option for this project than utilizing a GPU.
