How do i get wcg to use my GPUs only?
I am over 100 in queue now.
Set the profile to not allow cpu WU's on WCG website.
But would this interfere with my cruncher at work since its CPU only?
You can have multiple profiles.
My home profile is GPU only, while default is everything.
What gpu is in the work rig?
First 20 gone. On the the next 100+
Hey guys, how to set the GPU percentage on BOINC? Right now, I have my GPU running at 100%, and I do not want :/
OK I created profiles but how do I set the profiles to the device?
Unfortunately you can't do that. Either the GPU runs at 100% for WCG or it doesn't run. My suggestion is to check the box allowing the GPU to crunch only while the computer isn't in use
EDIT @ Brandon: You do that under Device Manager; click on the device and then you can apply it to a specific profile
Never mind my last post, I found it. Ok I have the work 2600K running CPU only and my Home PC running both 6950's only
Brandon on Wcg site under device manager you can set your rigs to the profile you want.
The points are rolling in. If they keep the gpu unit up I might switch this rig to only them. LOL
Ok its alternating from GPU to GPU once WU are done COOL!
So yours isn't running 2 gpu wu at once?
I also spy a 1g.
Yeah as I was looking at WCG, and saying GPu to use only that %, but on BOINc it's either you use the GPu or not.. I gues I'll have to do that.
maybe it needs the card to be not on Crossfire?
Mine is crossfired and it's running 2 at once.
Yes that is a 1G
Nope it will use one card at a time alternating after one is finished.
Hmm that is wierd. Mine is using both cards at once.
well, I think BOINC will work only when computer is not working, but for me it doesn'T seems to work.. I'll have to stop GPU usage, as my window are soo slow when I moved them with GPU running at 100% :/
In your client under advance/perferences uncheck the box for use gpu while computer is in use. Then you can set a time for when it will start after idle.
that's only for GPU or CPU too?
That's just for gpu. You can set your processor usage with the "While processor usage is less then" box. Also if you don't have to many queued up you will run through the gpu units quick. I am banging through them at about 4 mins each. I have cracked through 40 of them so far.
Wonder how many points a piece these WU are going to be for?
Right around 54 points per unit. Very high yield on these compared to the other wu we do.
Pretty much exactly 56 points on my GTX460s and GTX470. Not bad, that's about 27k PPD from the GTX470 alone
Your AMD cards should do amazingly as well
so calculated like this would be 27K*2/7 = Total Bionc PPD of 7714.3?
