I just built a new PC, primarily for work, but also for S@H. PC has i7-4770K and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti (1024MB).

As the PC is primarily for work, I have it set to use 2 cores and the 650Ti with the standard BOINC Client. I do not want to start getting into the customized apps and such; running stock is just fine.

Curiosity question: How capable is my 650Ti of running more than 1 WU at a time? How many might it run at one time? I wouldn't mind running more, if I could do without affecting the computer's role as my primary work machine.

Thanks in advance!

I run 2 WU at a time on my 650 Ti, times are around 28-32 minutes for a standard WU.

If you are running 7.0.64, you can change the number of WU at a time with a app_config.xml file.

My GPU tasks are running in about 17 minutes. So I guess our net result is the same?

Here is a link to my little machine.

Looks like I run around 1400 to 1600 seconds or so. So about 24 to 27 minutes for 2. This is with the CUDA 50 app.

Yep, saw it! Like I said, while you are running 2 at a time, I'm taking about 35 minutes to run 2, one at a time (cuda 50 here, too).

Guess I'll leave things alone and not fix what ain't broke!

Thanks for your input.
