I don't know much about AMD GPU's, but I must say that all your completed Cuda50 work on your Nvidia GPU's have really atrocious run times.

1: How many workunits are you trying to run on each GPU? (I ask this because your run times are 5-6 times longer than I'd expect even using that old app, a GTX 660 should take no more than 22mins to do the longest of MB workunits under the SoG app doing 1 task at a time)

2: Why arn't you using the SoG app instead of that out dated Cuda app?

Running the SoG app properly on those Nvidia GPU's should near double your current RAC.

Cheers.

go to you BOINC and find view. Change it to advance view, then once it has change, look for tools in the pulldown menu. Click on tools and find event log.

Click on Event log. If you just restarted BOINC, you can scroll back up and find the first 30 lines. If BOINC has been running a while, might want to exit and relaunch and go back and find the first 30 lines of the start up in the Event log.

SoG is an application, usually installed with the installer but before that, lets see if BOINC event sees your GPU....

The Lunatics Beta6 installer, select SoG for NVidia.
Change the settings back to run only 1 WU at a time.

If you want to keep running CUDA then no more than 2 WUs at a time is best.

Yes running 4 tasks at a time would certainly account for those atrocious run times that you're producing, 2 should be the limit while running the Cuda50 app.

The Lunatics 0.45 beta6 installer with the SoG app can be found here, http://mikesworld.eu/download.html and just run 1 task at a time on your cards (your GTX 970 maybe able to run 2 SoG tasks at a time, but only testing will tell if it can do it productively).

Cheers.
