As I move things around next week it looks like I might, later in the week when a 1050 shows up, up to 2 spare 750 Ti's that I (apparently) can add to this new workstation/server that will be arriving.

Since it is under windows, I don't think "auto tune" is an option.

If I use the 1060 parameters including -sbs 1024 I am worried that the 750's memory will "thrash" because it will be "paging" things in and out because its limit is more like -sbs 512. Short of running the 1060 at -sbs 512 is there a better idea?

I can try the stock setup for multiple different gnus parameter file but it doesn't seem to successfully regulate the individual gpu memories so I wonder if it regulates anything else?

Thanks,
Tom

It's not an issue as the GTX750Tis will default to the maximum they can actually use.
