Hi all,
I've been crunching for a while and have recently got a new graphics card, an RTX 2070, running the SoG application with s@h take between 3 and 5 mins to process a typical WU but I'm finding the cuda 42 and cuda 50 applications are taking 15-19 mins per WU. this is a lot slower. is there anything I can do besides installing the lunatic's optimized apps to make the project only use the SoG application?

Many thanks,

Just give it a bit of time and it will settle on the fastest one.
This is normal operation. Or you could just install Lunatics and it would go with your pick..

Even though the servers will eventually settle on the best app they will on occasions revisit those older apps.

The only way to stop this is to use the Lunatics Installer.

The installer will automatically select the much quicker AVX CPU MB8 app and you just have to select the SoG MB8 app for your Nvidia GPU's, make your selections to do Astropulse CPU and Nvidia apps and skip the Intel iGPU and AMD/ATi sections.
