Hello,

Currenlty you can allocate the amount of CPUs/cores manually for BOINC but not GPU. Could you add such feature also for GPU.

Could you please add a feature that does not use specific amount of GPU or specifc amount of CPU cores while gaming. Currently there is only on/off feature for either GPU or CPU.

Usually one dedicated Core and one dedicated GPU for gaming purposes is enough. The rest could crunch the WU as before.

There is a way to do this. I believe you edit a certain file.

If someone doesn't help out here, ask in the "number crunching" forum.

Hello,

There are features like exclusive CPU or exclusive GPU. But it does not do the trick. More easy would be to just select snooze feature from the task bar. An additional GAming profile which you could preconfigure the amount of CPU & GPU with easy activation is what I am looking for. I.e. something that can be done in 2 seconds. Editing profiles takes a while longer.

I see what you mean. You would like to see something like "usage profiles" that could be selected from the tray icon in an instant.

Not a bad idea.

Yes. This was what I had in mind. I figure the effort would not be too big either. It is more about adding new GUI features that control existing functionality.
