The reason I asked, is my plan to turn off CPU tasks for MW and only make it do GPU tasks. That way, my CPU can do some other projects, that can't be run on the GPU.

Yup. That's what I do.


Hmm, what should I cange to make it do this?
I have looked though the settings, but can't find the right option. Under MilkyWay@home preferences, the option "Use CPU" is set to No (it has been this way for a long time) - but I still get CPU tasks. What other options should be changed be changed?

Same as far as I know

Yup. Same. That's why the granted credit is the same for CPU work and GPU work.


Okay, thank you.

Better use of my hardware. :-)

Hi,

I can't find an answer to my question, so I will just ask it instead.

Is there a difference in the kind of work, that the CPU get and what the GPU get? I seem to remember, that Folding@home sent 'special' WU to the GPU, because they where limited in what work they could do. It all worked towards the same goal, but different CPU/GPU are better suited for some work than other.

Is it the same with MW - are the WU different?
