I've been messing with the percentage of work done by the cpu, by dropping the cpu workload to 10% my gpu workload jumps from 30-40% to 70%.
Probably everyone already knew that, but i thought i would share anyway :-)

Just a tip, For AMD CPU like the one you have is better leave a core (or even 2 you need to test) free to feed the GPU, and a sugestion, try 2 WU at a time, that will give you get a better performance from your GPU. Plenity of examples are avaiable on the forum.

How do you get 2 x wu to work at the same time?
Thanks

When running Anonymous Platform (you're not), you just change the Count value in your app_info.xml to 0.5

For Stock users, it hasn't been possible (until now), unless the project produces their own preferences like Einstein has done,

With the latest Boinc 7.0.44 there is a new app_config.xml config option where you can limit the number of tasks to be run at once, or increase the number of tasks to be run:

BOINC 7.0.40-42 and new app_config.xml
