11) Message boards : Problems and Help : CPU/GPU Prioritization? (Message 137785)
Posted 1026 days ago by ZachProject donor
I have 12 cores and a GPU. I'm trying to do 2 MT tasks w 5 cores each + a GPU task. So my settings are 5 threads and 3 max tasks. This works fine most of the time, but sometimes I'll return to it and it's doing 1 CPU, 1 GPU, and holding one GPU WU. (That's weird too because it's set to not pre-fetch.)

My hypothesis is that sometimes when it reports a CPU WU, it sees there's room for another task and prioritizes fetching a GPU task. Is that the case, and can I control it?

Given all that hardware you're packing RFGuy_KCCO, I'm not surprised at all! :D


Well we all know the best way to win a Tour is doping :-)

Ah man, I missed a prime by 25 seconds! So close.

Thanks for the news stats on the homepage, super cool.

I gotta tell y'all I have been so hyped for the Tour de Primes. I was super disappointed I only got a double check last year, but that machine was slow as all getout. My new machine is plowing through the PPSEs like nobody's business so I think I got a shot. I can't wait for that sweet, sweet taste of prime discovery, I really think it might happen this year.

I... don't have a lot else going on in my life.

16) Message boards : Problems and Help : GFN tasks maxErr--Driver problem? (Message 136930)

Could be, but how do I throttle down to see if it is this problem?


I believe the most common program is MSI Afterburner. It's GUI and you don't have to mess around with the BIOS.

I've verified that I have the most recently released driver from nVidia. Does Update do something that would break it while retaining that driver?

I was getting a bunch of these with Genefer WUs too. I couldn't figure out how to get my machine to let me declock the GPU, but I did reduce the max. allowable temperature to 70. This seemed to fix the issue.

I can see in GPU-Z that it's now "capping performance" to keep the temperature down. I think it kept kicking into boost mode or something which I've effectively disallowed with the temp. cap. Might work for you too.

What is it?

I mean, I think I know based on the name :-) I'm getting it despite also having successfully processed other Genefer WUs. I was getting more of them before I reduced my max GPU temperature, which eliminated my maxErr problem, but I still see this one happening sometimes. Any thoughts?
