I just added a Pitcairn AMD card to a machine that already has two Tahiti cards.

I want to run GFN-21 on the Tahitis, but PPS-Sieve or a smaller GFN project on the Pitcairn. Is the best way to divide cards and tasks to use app_info.xml, or is there a better way?

I achieved limited success going the cc_config.xml route (note it goes in the boinc root, not the project directory).

E.g.:
<cc_config>
<options>
<use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus>
<exclude_gpu>
<url>http://www.primegrid.com</url>
<device_num>1</device_num>
<app>pps_sr2sieve</app>
<device_num>0</device_num>
<app>genefer15</app>
</exclude_gpu>
</options>
</cc_config>

HOWEVER, a major issue was that one GPU would complete a task, and would wait for the other to finish before downloading another. Maybe cache could fix that, but I gave up at that point.
