Almost sure, that this isn't the winning post.

Aha!(again) - Thanks OzzFan.
So to take advantage on my current machine, I should goto .75/75% Cores in Prefs?

And same percent on new one (more I think) since I only have One discrete GPU
that I run CUDAs at .25GPU config - but AP-OpenCL NV is config with 1+1.
=
I'm currently planning to DVI my new iGD HD 4600 to my Monitor only - to free up discrete GPU VRAM for Crunch only.
I'll "unlist" use Intel GPU/iGD in Prefs - until I see OC options for it in BIOS that is - (that would come close to 960 GPU's base clock of 540MHz) who knows? Not I til I *seethis BIOS.

Telling BOINC to only use 3 of the 4 CPU cores in your current machine is likely to increase its overall performance.
If you set BOINC CPU usage to 75% the setting in your app_config for the OpenCL AP app to use a whole core will still be used. So while AP tasks are running only 2 CPU cores will be used. So you may want to update your app_config settings so that does not occur. Alternatively you could modify your MB GPU app settings to also reserve a whole core instead of changing the BOINC CPU setting.

I'm not 100% sure what you are referring to in regards to the iGPU clock vs the GTX 960. Most of the iGPUs have a clock that runs 1.0-1.3 GHz. That doesn't really mean anything as they have far fewer shader units & thus a much lower GFLOPS benchmark. The iGPU in the i7-4790K should be rated at 400 GFLOPS according to the formula they use.


The GPU in i7-4790K, is rated much lower than that by BOINC, as can be seen from the startup of my new computer:

And then again, the same problem with AP availability comes back. I'm soon out of AP's again.

Sigh....

I am OK. The kitties are splendid.
Thank you for your concern.

Good to hear Mark. I was a bit concerned, because you usually don't stay out of here for 4 days, unless you are banned :-)

Take care, and don't work yourself to an early grave.

We hope he is ok, life is a bit of a go for him.
We only wish him peace while he is here on earth!

Amen to that.

He may be working over time.

That hasn't stopped him before from posting. After all, it's well known that SETI is one of the bigger parts of his life...

Mark MIA for 4-days without the reason being "banned", is highly unusual at least.

It's a normal situation nowadays. SETI being unreliable. Nothing to worry about. Go outside and enjoy mother nature instead.

El pueblo unido jamás será vencido,
el pueblo unido jamás será vencido...

De pie, cantar
que vamos a triunfar.
Avanzan ya
banderas de unidad.
Y tú vendrás
marchando junto a mí
y así verás
tu canto y tu bandera florecer,
la luz
de un rojo amanecer
anuncia ya
la vida que vendrá


Next 20
