Although I am getting a lot of SOG's for my new box's (its been online a week or so) Gtx 1060 3GB I just noticed that the Seti scheduler had dropped a 20 odd Cuda50's on me. So I went and copy/pasted the cfg.sample and put in the "improved" parameters.
;;; This configuration file is for optional control of Cuda Multibeam x41zi ;;; Currently, the available options are for ;;; application process priority control (without external tools), and ;;; per gpu priority control (useful for multiple Cuda GPU systems) [mbcuda] ;;;;; Global applications settings, to apply to all Cuda devices ;;; You can uncomment the processpriority line below, by removing the ';', to engage machine global priority control of x41zi ;;; possible options are 'belownormal' (which is the default), 'normal', 'abovenormal', or 'high' ;;; For dedicated crunching machines, 'abovenormal' is recommended ;;; raising global application priorities above the default ;;; may have system dependant usability effects, and can have positive or negative effects on overall throughput ;processpriority = abovenormal ;;; Pulsefinding: Advanced options for long pulsefinds (affect display usability & long kernel runs) ;;; defaults are conservative. ;;; WARNING: Excessive values may induce display lag, driver timeout & recovery, or errors. ;;; pulsefinding blocks per multiprocessor (1-16), default is 1 for Pre-Fermi, 4 for Fermi or newer GPUs ;pfblockspersm = 8 ;;; pulsefinding maximum periods per kernel launch (1-1000), default is 100, as per 6.09 ;pfperiodsperlaunch = 200 ;[bus1slot0] ;;; Optional GPU specifc control (requires Cuda 3.2 or newer app), example processpriority = abovenormal pfblockspersm = 8 pfperiodsperlaunch = 200
So my question is. For the "newer" generation of GPU's like my Gtx 1060 3GB has anyone found a "faster" while still being reliable, set of parameters?

Let them run through with the default settings, BOINC will decide they are too slow to worry about and not send you any more.
btw. - There is NO difference between a "SoG" task and a "CUDA50" task. What is different is the application the task is target at.
