1) Message boards : Number crunching : Regular GPU or Mining-designed GPU (Message 1876404)

In past days grown in my mind this question. A GPU mining-designed would have better performance than a regular GPU?

This doubt is feeded by articles where says the some graphics chips are improved to get more efficiency with coin-mining's algorithm (maybe some BOINC-based projects will works better).

Thanks for read me. Cheers!

I downloaded some tasks one minute ago (8.22 opencl_ati5_nocal) and the first task is running fine.
Also I wish the all another WUs will works fine.
Thanks for response, cheers!

I received 40 tasks (8.22 opencl_ati5_SoG_nocal) at January 21.

The tasks don't get aborted automatically, I had to abort it manually today when I found out this.

Greetings from Mexico.

4) Questions and Answers : GPU applications : Radeon and Nvidia at the same time? (Message 1791942)

Thanks you all for response.

Angeless: Originally I thought switch the GPU in the BIOS (fool idea) to use APU's GPU or to use Nvidia GPU. But, is good idea to try use a dummy VGA to use both GPUs.

AMDave: I read that a volunteer wrote that was computing with AMD and Nvidia at same time and that excites me.

This is a medium-term plan, so in the future I will share the process of instalation and configuration, and results with the comunity (if someone want to try it too).

Now I know how to start this experiment. ^_^

Cheers for you all!

Hi! I have a PC with this features:

CPU: AMD A10 7700K
GPU: R7 Spectre (BOINC Manager says it).
Motherboard: Gigabyte F2A88XM-HD3
RAM: 16 GB @ 1333MHz
OS: Windows 7 Professional x64

And I'm curious to add a Nvidia GPU (GT 210 or GT610 or GTX 750 Ti) to compute WUs with both graphics cards at the same time.

It is possible? Someone was did it? Or something similar?
If is not possible I will add a R7 240 to increase up my contribution.

Thanks for read me, and I'm so sorry for my bad english.

Cheers!
