    You should set affinity - one for the CPU and the other for GPU (CPU 1 and 0)

    No, your gpu client under Vista should use not more than around 5%. Are you running any other app?

    What are the values: CPU and GPU Clients?

    Ex: Mine:

    Cpu = 50%

    Gpu = ~4%

    OK stanhemi, sorry.

    The values I passed you (50 and 4%) are using vista with nVidia cards. I know that nVidia fixed up the gpu client CPU usage with the latest drivers.

    My rigs with ATI cards, all of them are currently using win XP and the CPU usage is 100% all the time!!

    what about under XP? my GPU client pulls 50%(full load on one CPU core) if there is something i can do that will lower the CPU usage for the GPU it would be great.

    @MMAAKK: i like your avvy :toast:

    Thanks p_o_s_pc! :toast:

    The values I posted are for vista32 and with nvidia cards. I read that the latest nvidia beta (I'm using "180.84_geforce_winxp_32bit_english_beta") did solve the problem related with high CPU usage under GPU client.

    Give a try, and this latest beta has GTA IV improvements too.

    Strangest thing I went from about 2xx performance to 4xx up to 5xx ! With this new mobo and CPU speed I get double the performance now !

    Geez, nothing but 384 pointers for the last 2 days! Knocks me down by 2k points per day... Also is it normal if you set the smp client to 50%, that it uses 100% of 1 core and 70-80% of the other? This is with no gpu client running. I really don't want either core sitting at 100% continuously....

    I don't know if that useful,tonight i found this article about new catalyst

    8.12 contains updated dlls that we will switch over to at a later date, so for now you will not see a performance change with 8.12 until that switch occurs and/or the newer cores are made public.

    I'm 41 i know that is going to be going down again. My 8800GT keeps hitting around 90c and just not feeling like it is safe for the GPU. Temps used to be around 70-75c before the voltmod so looks like i am going to have to get a new cooler.

    Congrats Bow!! Everybody knows that after the 1.19 core, going to the top is taking a little longer. :toast:
