I have the following
<cc_config> <options> <ignore_intel_dev>1</ignore_intel_dev> </options> </cc_config>
BOINC detects my setting to ignore Intel GPU. Yet it is still fetching Intel GPU work units.

Fri Nov 9 12:55:57 2018 | SETI@home | Requesting new tasks for Intel GPU
Is there anyway to prevent BOINC from fetching Intel GPU workunits when I have it disabled?

The "best" place to stop a particular type of processor getting tasks is from your "Account" web page:
Simply de-select the Intel GPU option and you will stop getting tasks for the Intel GPU from SETI

It's also because GPU device numbering starts at 0 (zero). So the Intel device to ignore is 0 (zero)
<cc_config> <options> <ignore_intel_dev>0</ignore_intel_dev> </options> </cc_config>
On a single CPU system you can't have a second Intel GPU (GPU 1), because there's only one built into the CPU.
But in essence, unchecking the Use Intel GPU option on the project's preferences page fixes all that.
