Einstein has an option "Run CPU versions of applications for which GPU versions are available", which I unticked. We need a similar thing here. I have computers with CPU and GPU, and I'd like to use both for Milkyway, but if I allow them both to get tasks, the separation tasks get run on the CPU which is a waste of time, since they're 100s of times faster on the GPU. I want just the nbody to go on the CPU, as the GPU can't do that.

Or another alternative, does anyone know of something I can put in my config files to forbid the download of CPU separation tasks? I thought maybe I could tell it they needed 100 cores which I don't have so it wouldn't ask for them. Or does Boinc just say "CPU work please" and it's up to the server which app to give out?
