    I am a cruncher at several projects of BOINC.
    I have question regarding 'What gpu load really means'.

    I see @ Einstein a gpu load of ~ 95% and a power consumption of <60% TDP
    I see @ GPUGRID a gpu load of 78% and a power consumption of > 75% TDP

    Graphic card is a GTX 750ti

    The Einstein app is cuda32
    The GPUGRID app is cuda6

    I tried to get an answer @ Einstein, but sorry, nothing what explains the difference.

    Hoping to get an answer here I joined this forum today.

    I haven't seen any reliable info on how GPU usage is calculated. My best guess is that it monitors how many clock cycles in a certain interval specific GPU units are active. It is certainly not an average of all the different units inside the GPU
    Alexander77 and AlienIsGOD say thanks.
