If I remember correctly, and assume I don't . . . . MW allows 300 tasks per card and a project maximum of 900 tasks.

Yes, your correct.

Based on the other discussions I try to write a script that will work around the limit by pausing the networking

I also assume that it would be better for the project to create larger work units? or at least an option for larger ones?

They already make larger units by bundling 4 or 5 tasks in the work unit.

But they ran into issues just recently with failed work units that for some reason the devs haven't figured out had the scheduler/splitter bundle 7 tasks into the WU and that exceeds the parameter length limit.

So making larger tasks doesn't seem possible at this time.

Still won't go above 210w, timed it and when running 16 units at the same time it does about as much work in the same time as when I run 4 units at once, no real difference.

I assume the 3090 just can't do enough work to get to full power, in the Ampere SMs only half of the SM can do FP64 so, I can imagine the best case here is 3090 would be about half of max power which is about what you see I assume if you have 400 W BIOS, I have founders so I have 350 W and see about 180 W, with just one WU at a time

even on my Titan V, its not full bore with 7 WUs at once

There are other gpu projects that will use every watt available to them on Ampere. GPUGrid, Minecraft, Einstein for example.
We just need Petri to give the MW app a good work over like he has done with Seti and Einstein.
