I have a 2080 ti & a 1660 super in my computer. I have used the use_all_gpu option so that both will run. However, even though it says Running (0.955 CPUs + 1 NVIDIA GPU(Device 0)) and ...(Device 1)), it's actually using the 2080 only (though twice, it seems). I only noticed because I'm monitoring the temperatures and the 2080's goes up while the 1660's stays flat.

If I tell it to ignore_nvidia_dev 0, then I can get it to use the 1660, but I can't seem to find a way to get it to run both simultaneously. If it ignores the 2080, then the 1660 will run just fine (CUDA utilization 80%+, power draw increases, temperature increases).

I've included the event log for having use_all_gpus enabled. I can confirm through thermals, power from the power supply, and Windows task manager that only the 2080 is being used.
Telling it to ignore either GPU gives an extra line in the log stating it's being ignored.

Thanks in advance for any help.
