Hi there guys,

I am a little confused as to what is going on on with the processing, I have a GTX 1080 GPU (Nvida) also a RX470 GPU (AMD), and a mediocre processor Intel core i5 7600

Here is a screeshot:


Now the question is, I want to minimise the load on the CPU, I want to use the RX470 (AMD) for the processing, and sometimes all 3 two GPUs and the CPU.

As of now, how do I know it is using the GPU, as the processors are showing 100% utilisation:




the ram usage is only at 28% under max load, granted I do gave very expensive RAM G.Skill Ripjaws 3600mhz 8GB but surely it must use more than 28% under load?

I'm a gamer and a semi-pro poker player, I don't mind dedicating an entire GPU for computations 24/7, it pretty much has negligible affect for me for gaming, and work.

Any advice?

This might help

1. Log into your account on the milkyway web page and then go to milkyway preferences
2.You want to edit the preferences by unchecking the CPU and then checking the nvidia option or the AMD option
3.Don't forget to save your changes !

Regards

John

GPU-Z is a very handy utility for displaying stats and utilization of your GPU
