Message 959976 - Posted: 1 Jan 2010, 23:51:34 UTC

I have two GPUs (not in SLI), an 8600GTS and an 8800GTS.
When I start the BOINC manager both cards are listed;
Nvidia GPU 0 (not used)GeForce 8800GTS
Nvidia GPU 1:GeForce 8600GTS

How can I get BOINC to use both GPUs?
{If there is a way}
I tried using optimized app.s from Lunatics but it doesn't seem to change the ability to run more than one GPU.

Do I have to have identical GPUs in order to use both?

Can you help me out?

You need to put a cc_config.xml file in your BOINC data folder.

I had the same problem and it was answered here.

Wow . . . that was pretty easy..

I thought I had to actually find an XML file named "cc_config.xml", that link cleared it up. I just typed it out on Dreamweaver and saved it to the BOINC data file..


Thanks much!
;)

Your welcome. I'm glad I could help. :)

I just copied and pasted it in windows notepad and saved it as a cc_config.xml file. Slightly easier than typing it out. When saving you need to change the option from saving as a .txt to saving as all files.
