Hi All,

Just thought I would throw something out there that surprised me a little bit.

In my HP rig with the Ryzen7 4700G, I was just running the gpu built in and decided since I had this GTX1050TI laying around I would throw it in and see what would happen.
Well, after several reboots and no edits to the bios, it started showing up in Boinc, as though nothing happened. No editting of anything. Pretty nice.
I then went to the app_config file and changed it to this and I'm running 16 wu's on cpu and 4 wu's on each of the gpus. Pretty slick. Now I'm just waiting to see what a difference the extrra gpu brings to the system.

<app_config>
<app>
<name>milkyway</name>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>0.25</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>0.08</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
</app_config>

I also have a 1050Ti but only running a single task at a time and these are my numbers:
772.46 219.05 244.01 Milkyway@home Separation v1.46 (opencl_nvidia_101)
x86_64-pc-linux-gnu

while these are you numbers running 4 at a time:
1,210.28 413.42 228.26 Milkyway@home Separation v1.46 (opencl_nvidia_101)
windows_x86_64

It seems to me that you are doing alot better than I am as far as credit goes!!

Mikey,

Thanks for the comeback.
Whether it's worth running 4 tasks or not, I'll know in a while.
I've just left it alone so it can settle down and determine just how long it will
take to run a WU on average. I'll let you know when I check in on it later.
I was just very surprised that I didn't have to do anything special to set it up.
I thought I would have to fix something in the bios, but there wasn't anything
in there that I could change.

Love getting feedback on my follies!

No problem, but there could be a problem if the Project can't supply you with enough tasks to keep that thing running consistently on MW tasks, then it might just be an exercise in hot and cold episodes
for the gpu. As long as you have sufficient cooling for that thing then getting it revved up shouldn't be a bad thing but if you have to wait for tasks, I know you are running the special MW version of Boinc, then the heat up and cool down cycling could kill that thing.

Haven't had a problem so far getting enough tasks. The 1050ti wu's take about 27 minutes a piece and the amd tasks are taking about 19 minutes. My cpu is running at about 87c and the Tj Max on it is 95c. Still, I'm running it under boinc at 85% of the time. The amd gpu being part of the cpu, iit is running at about 76c and the 1050ti is running at 54c. Looks like the RAC is going up, how much, just have to wait and see if it is worth it.


Thanks again for the input. Always appreciated.
