22) Message boards : Number crunching : GPU Requirements [OLD] (Message 42405)
Posted 27 Sep 2010 by Cliff Harding

I have a very unique card EVGA GTX275 w/ integrated GTS250. This is a card that has two separate physical double precision capable processors on the same card. Normally the GTS250 (GPU1) will not support double precision if on a card by itself. But in this instance because it is intregrated with the GTX275 (GPU0) it is. You may want to add this card to your list for those who have this type of card but have not designated the GTS250 to crunch GPU WUs.

Normally, I only crunch SETI, but I was doing a test by downloading some MW tasks for timing purposes. I noticed that all of the downloaded tasks were GPUs and when they started crunching is when I discovered that both GPUs were crunching on MW; instead of one on MW and the other on SETI.

I am currently running two projects on two machines (Windows 7 & Vista Business) using the current BOINC software (6.10.18). In this version I have noticed not only do I get the active SETI screen saver, but also static displays of all tasks that are currently running; which includes Milkyway.

I know it is very little to go on right now, but at least it gives me a reminder of what is currently running. If you have Windows and you haven't upgraded, now might be a good idea.

Post:
This should not be a problem, because the SETI WUs will process very quickly. The only ones that will take any amount of time are the Astropulse WUs. The rest CPU WUs usually complete in 2 hours clock time per.

I recently added the Milky Way project which is supposed to run at 50% of the time with the currently running SETI project, switching every 60 minutes between projects. I received WUs for the CPU, but no GPUs on the first day and nothing since. Any ideas why.
