Hi folks, I have a rig with a GeForce GTX 480 and a GeForce 8400 GS.

Tasks for the GeForce 8400 GS constantly bomb with 197 (0xc5) EXIT_TIME_LIMIT_EXCEEDED.

I presume because the faster GPU is being used to determine the ETA of the task and the slower GPU can not get there on time. (computer 6850757)

Is there a setting in the app_info or other approach that might be more tolerant for running both a fast and slow GPU?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions

eithier run a second Boinc client with one GPU excluded from each client, or move the slower GPU to a different PC.
