I5-3570 want to use all 4 cores for normal processing of 6.03's plus GPU
660 for 6.10's but I can process AP's twice as fast when a full core is available.

Anyway with an app_info or app_config in 7.42 to tell AP OpenCL tasks to use a full core?

Thanks

I'd try with:
<avg_ncpus>1</avg_ncpus>
<max_ncpus>1</max_ncpus>

Ok, since I have 200 tasks waiting to process, I'll set NNT and wait
to try this so I won't blow up those 200 tasks with an Edit fit for a Joker,
as I recently did over at MilkyWay trying to get two GPU tasks to run at the same time.

I think I'll upgrade to 7.042 to try the app_config method, less chance of a bad edit

Thanks Raist,

Will give it a shot after I wind down all my tasks.
